Guillermo Del Toro Gets Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Guillermo del Toro has long been a respected director, producer, and writer - and now he's finally been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Singer Lana Del Rey and fellow director J.J. Abrams were present at the ceremony, and each gave speeches praising Guillermo's creativity and individuality.

"In a culture of sameness, he's completely himself," Lana said. "And that's the greatest lesson I get from his tales."

J.J. Abrams called him "one of the most creative and inventive minds in the entertainment industry, but one of the biggest hearts."

In his acceptance speech, Guillermo gave love to "weirdos", horror, and his native country of Mexico.

"This star is for all of you who feel weird," he said. "We all can make a difference. We all have stories to tell.”

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, which Guillermo produced, hits theaters this weekend.
