Minnie Mouse gets Hollywood star 40 years after Mickey

Minnie Mouse was thrilled to unveil her star.

Minnie Mouse will finally receive her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. Mickey already got a star for the 50th anniversary of that animation film in 1978.

Minnie has been celebrated as a fashion icon, pop culture staple and a character who brings joy to children worldwide, and an actor dressed as the cartoon character waved and batted her eyelashes throughout Monday's ceremony. Of course, the 33-year-old singer went all out for the event, rocking red and white polka dots in honor of Minnie's famous style. "And Mickey, I'm so happy you're here to share this wonderful day to me", she said, blowing him a kiss. "Trust me, I'm trying!"

It took Minnie four decades longer than her boyfriend to receive the same accolade because Disney only nominated her previous year, she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by phone.

"This is the best day ever".

In addition to Mickey and Perry, model Heidi Klum and Walt Disney Co.

"And I can't think of anyone who embodies that more than my dear friend Minerva Mouse".

A number of other fictional Disney characters have already received the Walk of Fame honor, including Tinker Bell, Donald Duck, Winnie the Pooh, Kermit the Frog and Snow White.
