Bruckheimer called the Walk of Fame star an “unbelievable honor”

The  Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer who is behind hits such as “Top Gun,” “Beverly Hills Cop,” “Armageddon” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise received the 2,501st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday.

Bruckheimer’s films have generated more than $16 billion in global box office revenues.

Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise were among the celebrities who attended the ceremony.

“Without Jerry, there would be no ‘Pirates,’ there would be no Captain Jack,” Depp said. “Without Jerry, there would be no ‘Lone Ranger,’ there would be no reinvigorated Tonto. So I have a lot to thank him for. The man is a legend to me, a legend to us all, hence this congregation to celebrate him for his long-deserved star on the Walk of Fame.”

Bruckheimer called the Walk of Fame star an “unbelievable honor.”

“I won’t get too big-headed, though, because the list also includes Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse and the Three Stooges,” he said.
