Jodie Foster gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Two-time Oscar winner Jodie Foster was awarded a star on Hollywood Boulevard's Walk of Fame on Wednesday -- and revealed she was banned from the glitzy thoroughfare as a child.

The veteran actress was presented with the 2,580th star on the walk by longtime friend Kristen Stewart outside the iconic TCL Chinese Theater in the heart of Tinseltown.

"I grew up probably ten blocks from here, off Cahuenga, and had to pass this street every day as I was on my way to school," she told fans, some of whom had been waiting six hours to catch a glimpse of the star.

"And my mother said if she ever found us on Hollywood Boulevard, we shouldn't bother coming home."

Foster, 53, is best known for playing FBI agent Clarice Starling opposite Anthony Hopkins' serial killer Hannibal Lecter in Jonathan Demme's 1991 horror-thriller "The Silence of the Lambs."

She won a best actress Oscar for that role, having picked up her first Academy Award, also for best actress, for "The Accused" three years earlier.
