Starry-eyed actress Charlize Theron was overjoyed to receive a place on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame - and the award lies just blocks away from the spot where her stellar career kicked off.

Congratulated by family, friends and fans at the unveiling on Thursday (29SEP05), an emotional Theron recounted how she was discovered by an agent while queuing at a bank on Hollywood Boulevard aged 18.

The MONSTER star had been encouraged to give up ballet and modelling to pursue a film career in Los Angeles by her mother.

Theron, who was visibly moved at the ceremony, can't believe her good fortune.

She said, "I had big dreams when I came here, but this is an incredibly amazing gift ... two cherries on top of the cake."

But honorary Mayor Of Hollywood Johnny Grant believes the honour is entirely deserved.

He joked, "I must admit just her presence here this morning gave my pacemaker a vigorous jump-start."
