Disney/Pixar's John Lasseter Receives Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Jordan Strauss/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- John Lasseter, the chief creative officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios and the man responsible for hit films such as the Toy Story series and the two Cars movies, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday. His star is the 2,453rd on the famed sidewalk.

Lasseter got choked up during the ceremony as he remembered his former Pixar partner, the late Steve Jobs. He said without Jobs, Pixar would not exist.

After the ceremony, Lasseter told ABC News Radio that in one respect, the Walk of Fame star is more special to him than an Oscar. He said, "When you get an award like an Oscar or something like that, you take the award home and it's at your house. This is the only award in the world where it's, like, here for the world to see."

Don Rickles, the voice of Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Story films, and Bonnie Hunt, who is heard in the two Cars movies, were among the celebrities who attended the ceremony.
