Stars honour Steve Harvey as he receives star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Samuel L. Jackson and Ellen Degeneres helped honour their pal Steve Harvey in Los Angeles on Monday (13May13) as the comedian and TV personality received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Tony Award-winning Family Feud host donned a flashy yellow suit as he celebrated the achievement with friends and fans before thanking his wife Marjorie and their children for their never-ending support.
Pulp Fiction actor Jackson was on hand to photograph the occasion, as was U.S. TV psychologist Phil McGraw, and comedienne DeGeneres delivered a few remarks, joking, “When they asked me to come and do this today, I didn’t have to think – I said yes right away, then I realised that I wasn’t getting paid and I tried to back out, but I couldn’t, it was too late. So I’m here.”
The veteran entertainer admits he was overcome with emotion to be recognised for his lengthy radio and television career – telling, “People call it luck, but what luck actually is – luck is when hard work runs up into opportunity and people describe it as luck. I do work very hard, I kid you not – but I’m also a recipient of a lot of grace and mercy.”
