Crazy, Stupid, Love star Julianne Moore was flanked by two of the hottest young stars in Hollywood was she received her star on the Walk of Fame.

She was joined by Dark Knight Rises actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who stars opposite the flame-haired actress in new movie Don Jon, which he also wrote and directed.

Also by her side was Kick-Ass star Chloe Grace Moretz, who headlines the remake of prom night horror movie Carrie, which features Julianne as her mother.

Dressed in a knee-length yellow dress and white sandals, Julianne said she never believed she could get paid to be a movie star.

"Growing up it never even occurred to me that it was possible to be an actor for a living, I had never met one or seen a real play and I thought acting was what you did after school because you couldn't play sports.

"I did it because my favourite thing to do was read and it was a way for me to imagine I was in the book. I loved being inside the story but being a movie star was even more realistic, I didn't think they were real people, I thought they were something I had dreamt."

Before unveiling her star on Hollywood Boulevard, the actress added: "I never expected this, I am thrilled and shocked to be included in this community."

Receiving a kiss on the cheek from the actress she described as her "mentor", Moretz said: "I have only known her for a year but in this short time she has taught me so many things, how to be a brilliant mom one day, how to have a long lasting career and be a beautiful person inside and out."
