Jennifer Aniston Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

James Devaney/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Jennifer Aniston's most memorable role was that of Rachel Green on the sitcom Friends, but on Wednesday she received a star on the Walk of Fame in recognition of her movie career.

The actress, whose new comedy Wanderlust opens Friday, was given the 2,462nd star on the famed sidewalk.

The 43-year-old Aniston said it was a "surreal" moment for her to be honored on the Walk of Fame.

She said, "I am a California girl through and through...I don't think I ever thought this would be here, this day."

In attendance at the ceremony were her Wanderlust co-star and boyfriend, Justin Theroux, her father, Days of Our Lives actor John Aniston, and her Just Go with It co-star, Adam Sandler.

Sandler joked to the crowd that in her younger days Aniston, "prayed for three things: to have everyone in the entire world be fascinated with her haircuts, to one day star in a movie about an evil leprechaun who kills people, and most importantly, receive a star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame."

Sandler was referring to Aniston's 1993 film Leprechaun. Her other film credits include Rock Star, Along Came Polly, The Break-Up, Marley & Me, Office Space, He's Just Not That Into You and Horrible Bosses.
