The “Friends” actress was immortalized at Hollywood and Vine on Wednesday as former co-star Adam Sandler paid tribute to her career.

If Jennifer Aniston wasn’t already Hollywood Royalty, she officially is now.

The former Friends actress, who next appears on the big screen in Universal’s Wanderlust, was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Aniston was given prime real estate for her star, located right near the corner of Hollywood and Vine.

“I was born in Sherman Oaks, California,” Aniston said during the ceremony. “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 day would be here, this day. So I am utterly humbled and grateful.”

Among the faces in the crowd were Aniston’s father, Days of our Lives actor John Aniston, and Wanderlust co-stars Malin Akerman, Kathryn Hahn and Justin Theroux -- her current off-screen beau.

But before Aniston could take the podium, her Just Go With It co-star Adam Sandler said a few words in her honor.

“Everyone loves this girl -- my wife loves this girl, Justin Theroux loves this girl,” Sandler joked. “She prayed for three things. To have everyone in the entire world fascinated with her haircut, to one day star in a movie about an evil leprechaun who kills people and most important, receive a star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame. Well today, Jennifer, the trifecta is here.”  

The honor comes following a July hand and footprint ceremony, in which Aniston laid her hands and feet in cement outside the Chinese Theater. Wanderlust opens nationwide on Friday, Feb. 24.
