Scarlett Johansson gets Walk of Fame star before 'Avengers' release

Actress Scarlett Johansson received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, just two days before the release of her latest film, "The Avengers."

The 27-year-old received the 2,470th star.

Johansson has been acting since she was 8, when she appeared in an off-Broadway production of "Sophistry." Since then, Johansson received the first two of her four Golden Globe award nominations in 2003 for her performances in "Girl With a Pearl Earring" and "Lost in Translation." She received additional Golden Globe nominations in 2004 for "A Love Song for Bobby Long" and 2005 for "Match Point."

Other film credits include "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," "The Other Boleyn Girl," "We Bought A Zoo," "He's Just Not That Into You" and "The Island."

Johansson said receiving a star close to Grauman's Chinese Theatre makes her feel like she's really made it.
