Scarlett Johansson says she's "totally thrilled" to have received a coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 27-year-old smiled broadly as she was surrounded by family and friends to receive the honour.

She was also joined by her Avengers co-star Jeremy Renner who planted a big kiss on her cheek as she knelt down by the California landmark.

"I was totally thrilled, of course, because I feel very nostalgic about that kind of thing," she told the crowd.

"It's a wonderful tradition, and I felt like I finally made it. I really did!

"I was like, 'Wow! I've been in the industry for 20 years, and I've worked since I was a kid.' It felt like a big milestone."

Johannson received star number 2,470 in the motion picture category.

The blonde beauty just wrapped filming on independent movie Under The Skin and will next portray Janet Leigh in Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho co-starring with Anthony Hopkins.
