Sally Field gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

By Sam Rigby


Sally Field has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Brothers and Sisters actress – who becomes the 2,524th star – was joined by Jane Fonda and Beau Bridges for the ceremony in front of the Hollywood Wax Museum on Monday (May 5).

The 67-year-old has enjoyed a career spanning 50 years, which began with ABC comedy Gidget in 1965.

She has gone on to star in films like Forrest Gump, Mrs Doubtfire, Lincoln and is a two-time Academy Award winner for Norma Rae (1979) and Places in the Heart (1984).

Speaking about her career in Hollywood, she said: “I was 17 years old, right out of high school. I didn’t have an agent, I wasn’t a member of the Screen Actors Guild, and all of a sudden, I was the star of a television series.”

Field most recently appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 alongside Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
