Funnyman Adam Sandler, Jennifer's co-star in "Just Go With It," introduced the "Friends" actress before she hit the podium on Hollywood Boulevard.

"I was born in Sherman Oaks, California," Aniston said on Wednesday while receiving the 2,462nd star. "I am a California girl through and through, and I'm sure this has always just sort of been in the back of my mind."

"It probably wasn't even a dream, it was one of my wildest dreams. I don't think that I ever even thought that this would be here, this day. So I am utterly humbled and grateful."

Aniston hits the big screen on Friday in the new romantic comedy, "Wanderlust," co-starring Paul Rudd and Theroux.
