Emma 'pigs out' to celebrate her entry to the walk of fame

Actress Emma Thompson has been enshrined in concrete outside the historic Pig 'n' Whistle pub on Hollywood Boulevard.

The 51-year-old double Oscar winner was presented with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, two weeks ahead of the August 20 release of her latest film, Nanny McPhee Returns.

Nanny cast-mate Maggie Gyllenhaal and House star Hugh Laurie, whom Thompson dated when they were at Cambridge university, were on hand for the ceremony, as was a baby pig, who posed for photos with Thompson on her new star.
