LOS ANGELES – George Lopez has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Lopez, star of ABC's "George Lopez," was joined by his wife, Ann, and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa at the ceremony Wednesday.
"I remember being 15, and walking up and down (the Walk of Fame) and dreaming about what I wanted to do and never thinking it was going to be done," the 44-year-old actor-comedian told fans.
Ann, who donated a kidney to Lopez last spring, cited her husband's rough upbringing in Los Angeles, saying he "is that little blade of grass that got through the cracks and got out."
Lopez started off as a standup comic before heading up his own sitcom, now in its fifth season.
