Sally Field has received the 2,524th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The two-time Oscar winner was on hand for the celebration Monday (May 5), which honored her 50-year career in Hollywood.
SOUNDBITE: Sally Field saying (English):
"To have a long-term career, you have to want what you want, more than you think you're capable of wanting. You have to constantly step aside anything having to do with ego, entitlements, and just head for the work wherever it might lead. I've ridden the highs and tried to learn from the lows. I have flown on wires and surfed in the ocean and rode on horses in covered wagons, and in fast cars. I've worked in mills and picked cotton and done stand up, I've done a love scene with a pelican, but then I've also done a love scene with Paul Newman. I've been weighed down with 50 pounds of period dress, I've been fully clothed, semi-clothed and totally naked. I've worked my whole life and feel the many miles I have accumulated in this saddle, and I can tell you right here and right now, in these last 50 years, I have not ever, not once, considered changing my mind."
Prior to her film career, Field began in television in 1964 in the series "Gidget." She went on to star in "The Flying Nun" in 1967, and had headlined three television series by the age of twenty-five.
She won an Academy Award for her performance in the 1979 film "Norma Rae" and she won her second Oscar for the 1984 film "Places in the Heart." She can currently be seen in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," playing the aunt to Peter Parker.
