John Cusack has been given a special star by Hollywood for his 30-plus years in the business.
The star, who has somehow managed to combine indie credibility with teen heartthrob popularity during his long career, was flanked by acting peers Billy Bob Thornton, Jack Black, Dan Ackroyd and his actress sister Joan at the ceremony on Hollywood's Walk Of Fame.
Cusack has been a worldwide star since his success in teen rom-coms The Sure Thing and Say Anything, but always managed to find a very un-Brat-Pack-esque edge to even mainstream fare, something he continued with roles in High Fidelity, Gross Pointe Blank and Being John Malkovich.
Cusack, whose most recent film was The Raven, his own interpretation of the story of Edgar Allen Poe, revealed he'd be up for a sequel to Say Anything, but he wasn't holding his breath.
He told HuffPostUK on a recent visit to London that he would happily work with director Cameron Crowe again, although he joked, "he only works with blonde movie actors now, or Tom Cruise. But it would be fun."
It didn't look like this, or anything else, was bothering him yesterday. Pics below...
