Russell Crowe joked that being honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame meant he was getting "really old".

The Oscar-winning actor, 46, who was joined by wife Danielle and their two young sons at the ceremony, told Entertainment Tonight: "I suppose in a way it means I've been around a while, and been making movies for a while - it basically just signifies that I'm getting really old."

Russell, who next stars in the Ridley Scott epic Robin Hood, added: "There's no place I would rather be, apart from with my family, than on a movie set."

Director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer, who got close to the New Zealand-born actor after filming A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man, were thrilled with his new achievement.

"No one could deserve a star more than Russell," Ron said.

Brian - who has also worked with Russell in the forthcoming Robin Hood and on American Gangster - added: "I've been a beneficiary of Russell Crowe's talent on four different films. I'm just going to be a small part of this, but I want to congratulate Russell for getting this star. It's a tremendous honour."
