Two big Hollywood stars were inducted into the Walk of Fame in their native country on October 18. Talented actors, Ryan Reynolds and Rachel McAdams received their stars over the weekend, in Canada, joined by other fellow Canadian alum.
Five time Olympic hockey star, Hayley Wickenheiser, and former Supreme Court Justice Louise Arbour also received stars. All honorees seemed in awe of one another, citing each other’s accomplishments, and surprised to be in such an extraordinary group.
McAdams, known for her roles in “Mean Girls,” “The Notebook”, and “The Time Traveler’s Wife”, was all smiles as she received her honor in a black and white flowing floor length gown. She changed up her look for the evening’s dinner to a one shouldered scarlet red dress.
Soon to be father, Ryan Reynolds, looked as dapper as ever in a black tux set off by a blue shirt underneath. He has achieved a great amount of success in his roles, including movies such as “The Proposal” and “Green Lantern” which have helped him build a strong career. That did not stop him from being awestruck with getting his star along with Louise Arbour, for whom he has a great deal of respect.
Arbor is a former Supreme Court justice who hopes getting inducted alongside such a star studded group, inspires young people to get into law rather than viewing it as a boring profession.
The Canada Walk of Fame is intended to honor Canadians who have excelled in their respective fields and talent. Such as Olympic star Wickenheiser who has traveled to the Olympics five times bringing home four gold and one silver medals. She expressed pride in her home country and awe at being honored alongside this impressive bunch.
Honored as well were Canadian-American members from The Band as well as late guitarist Jeff Healey, who passed away in 2008.
