Academy nominee and Marvel star Mark Ruffalo was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday in Los Angeles.
Ruffalo's 13 Going of 30 co-star Jennifer Garner made a surprise appearance and paid a rich tribute to the actor “To work with you, Mark, is to love you,” Garner said, and revealed how Mark Ruffalo almost dropped out of 13 Going on 30.
Garner revealed that Mark almost opted out of his iconic role in 13 Going on 30, courtesy of a dance portion in the film, Garner said, “I wonder if these esteemed ladies enjoyed Mark’s anxiety as much as I did? I wonder if he tried to drop out of their films as he did out of ours after the first rehearsal of the Thriller dance, where Mark went from kind of shocked that we actually had to do this to antsy to deathly quiet to ‘Bro, this is not for me.’”
Mark Ruffalo and Jennifer Garner starred together in the romantic comedy 13 Going on 30. In the film released in 2004, Garner played Jenna Rink, a 13-year-old girl who wakes up one day as a 30-year-old woman after making a wish. Mark Ruffalo portrayed Matt Flamhaff in the film, Jenna’s childhood friend and love interest.
On Thursday, Ruffalo became the 2,772nd person to receive a star on the coveted Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Other notable guests at the event included Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, actors Barry Keoghan, Lili Reinhart, Timothy McNeil, filmmaker David Fincher and Avengers director Joss Whedon.
The actor's two sons and wife also attended the event and posed with the actor.
