Anne Hathaway has been honoured with a star on the illustrious Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Accepting the award in Los Angeles on Thursday, the mother-of-one took the opportunity to thank the Tongva people - the Native Americans who historically inhabited the Los Angeles basin.

According to the Daily Mail, she said: "I started to think about the land that goes underneath the star, that land that goes beneath all of these stars, and how it was cared and kept for millennia, more than millennia, by the Tongva people.
"I think it's important to mention that they still live here today. So the soul and the spirit that runs through the earth beneath us originates with and continues to be kept by them.
"So I would like to begin by thanking the Tongva people and by acknowledging that they are the rightful keepers of the land this star is on."
Hathaway went on to thank her husband Adam Shulman, mother Kate McCauley Hathaway, and father Gerald Hathaway, all of whom were in attendance.

She said: "The gift of being the focus and recipient of your tremendous and enlightened love is, along with motherhood, the most important and profound part of my very blessed life.
"I am able to walk through this world as I do because you make me safe, held, seen and adored. I love you."
Rebel Wilson, Hathaway's co-star in new comedy The Hustle, was also at the unveiling of the star, and evidently feels Hathaway's talent warranted the honour.
Speaking to Variety, Wilson said: "She does drama, comedy, musicals, and I feel like if she wasn't an actress she could do almost anything else just as well!
"She's a deeply caring person and much cooler than what she lets on, but I guess you gotta keep some things secret when so much of your life is public."

Speaking to entertainment.ie, she said she was 'really excited by the project'.
She said: "Bob Zemeckis just took us through the film the other day and kind of let us in to peer into his imagination for a second.
"It's so exciting. And what he's doing is so charming. It's going to be scary, I guess, because it will be, but I can't really say anything more! I'm just really excited to be a part of it and I think he's going to do a great job."
