Gary Oldman paid tribute to his friend Malcolm McDowell as the A Clockwork Orange icon accepted his Hollywood Walk of Fame honour on Friday (16Mar12), hailing the veteran star for inspiring him to take up acting.
The English actor was honoured with the 2,465th star, outside Hollywood Boulevard's British pub The Pig n' Whistle, to celebrate his lengthy career, and he posed with his wife Kelley and their eldest son Beckett, eight, as the plaque was unveiled.
Speaking about his honour, MCDowell told reporters, "For a lad that grew up in Liverpool (England), Hollywood was this notion of everything that was incredible in the movies, and Hollywood has meant so much to the rest of the world - we take it, because we live in LA, sort of for granted."
And MCDowell is delighted about the location of his star, adding: "My father ran a pub in Burscough in Lancashire, just outside Liverpool, so I feel that from the Bull and Dog to the Pig and Whistle (sic), it's not that far."
MCDowell's pal Oldman was also on hand to pay tribute, revealing that the 68 year old's performance in 1971's The Raging Moon inspired him to become an actor.
The Harry Potter star explains, "It was like the lights went on in my life, in much the same way that John Lennon saw Elvis on screen and said 'That's a good job, I'd like to do that for a living'. I saw Malcolm in this film and I thought, 'This is what I want to do'."
