The star of The Mentalist, Simon Baker, attends a ceremony honoring him with the 2,490th Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame today (February 14, 2013) in Hollywood, California.
Simon should have gotten a star a long time ago just based on his gorgeous smile!
The show’s creator, Bruno Heller, presented the honor with British-Australian actress Naomi Watts, who starred alongside Baker in The Ring 2, in a ceremony outside Beso Restaurant.
When Baker learned that he was receiving the honor, he was humbled.
“I felt a little unworthy,” says Bakerof his reaction when he first heard about the honor.
He recalled first walking down Hollywood Boulevard, reading each name on the iconic stars.
“It was inspiring. One of the biggest hurdles in my career was having confidence in myself. I was surrounded by people who had more belief in me than I had in myself,” he says. “You think probably a lot of people (with stars) weren’t necessarily confident they could make a career of it, and that encouraged me to think that maybe I could do it.”
Well done Simon!
