Kathy Bates Gets Honored By Shirley MacLaine & Billy Bob Thornton At Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony!

Kathy Bates is all smiles as she accepts the 2,589th star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on Tuesday (September 20) in Hollywood.

The 68-year-old actress was honored by her family and Shirley MacLaine and Billy Bob Thornton, who will serve as her co-stars in Bad Santa 2.

“She is the type of actor who is not only loved by the public, the fans and the critics but also actors who know how good she is and what she can do,” Billy expressed during his speech (via Yahoo). “I’m gonna keep this short and tell you that if I could be a woman, I’d be Kathy Bates.”

Kathy, who has survived both ovarian and breast cancer, dedicated her star to an eight-year-old girl named Emma, whom she said was like her battling lymphedema, a condition often associated with cancer patients and which causes swelling of the limbs.
