Gwyneth Paltrow, a 38-year-old Oscar-winning actress known for movies such as "Shakespeare in Love" and "Se7en", received a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame on Monday.
Her husband Chris Martin and their children, Apple, 6, and Moses, 4, did not attend the ceremony. Paltrow splits her time between the United States and the United Kingdom, where her family lives.
Tim McGraw, who stars with Paltrow in the new film 'Country Strong', his wife and fellow country singer Faith Hill did make an appearance, as did Matthew Morrison of "Glee", the FOX musical sitcom that featured the actress as a substitute teacher, USA Today reported.
Paltrow says she is set to return to the show to reprise her role as free-spirited Holly Holiday.
Paltrow also plays a country singer in the upcoming movie "Country Strong", which stars Tim McGraw and "Gossip Girl"'s Leighton Meester, and provides her own vocals on a song by the same name. She performed the title track at the 2010 CMA Awards last month.
In the film, Paltrow plays Kelly Canter, a country singer looking for a comeback and McGraw, a real-life country star, plays her husband and manager. Meester, who plays snotty new York socialite Blair Waldorf in the CW series Gossip Girl and who has also released music, portrays a former beauty queen. The movie was written and directed by Shana Feste and is set to be released on Jan. 7, 2011.
