HOLLYWOOD, March 13 (UPI) -- Four-time Academy Award nominated actor Ed Harris received the 2,546th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday.
The ceremony included Harris' wife, actress Amy Madigan -- who starred opposite him in Places in the Heart -- his daughter, mother and several former co-stars, including Marcia Gay Harden, Holly Hunter and Andy Garcia.
"Acting has been a source of deep fulfillment and meaning to me, so I thank you for recognizing that I have done it pretty well, at least up to now," he said at the ceremony.
Harris, 64, earned Oscar nods for his roles as a gay man dying of AIDS in The Hours, as troubled painter Jackson Pollock in Pollock, as a NASA mission controller in Apollo 13 and as a television show creator in The Truman Show.
He also had notable roles in other films, including The Abyss, A Beautiful Mind, Glengarry Glen Ross and The Right Stuff.
"The first time I saw him on stage -- it was a Sam Shepard play called 'Cowboy Mouth' -- I just realized, wow, everything that everyone had been saying about this guy is true," Madigan said of her husband's talent. "There was immediacy to his performance. He had a truth-telling barometer that was at play at all times. His personality was very assured and comfortable and he had a powerful presence. But that's not going to work unless you are able to put your vulnerability first and Ed is such a wonderful combination of that. Even when he's playing a tough guy or a macho person, at the end of the day, there's always a vulnerability that brings people in."
