Hollywood actor Jack Black is now the 2,645th person to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The 49-year-old brought in his family members for the occasion which consisted of his wife Tanya, and children Samuel and Thomas.
As a recognition of his work in the movie, The house with a Clock in its Walls, Jack Black’s star was placed next to the Stormberg Clock present on the Hollywood Boulevard.
“I’m so nervous because I’m not used to having praise heaped upon me by people I love and respect so much. It’s very embarrassing for me. In some ways this is torture, but it’s also hugely humbling and I can’t believe everyone came. I thought no one was going to come to my stupid thing. Look at all you beautiful people. Thank you for the love,” said Black.
Jack who is an equally talented musician, songwriter and comedian couldn’t control himself from passing a humorous remark to his career and stated that it was time for him to hang up his boots from the World of glamour.
“I’m here to announce my retirement. I got the thing! Why continue! Once you get the thing. I’ve made it. I’ve officially, I have made it. And I’m going to focus on diet and exercise, ” said the actor who made the audience go haywire with his impeccable comic timing in the Kung Fu Panda franchise.
The actor who essayed a crucial role in the movie Tropic Thunder then hurled a cuss word at Donald Trump which didn’t go too well with the audience. They immediately took it on Twitter to express their anger towards the actor’s actions. While some appreciated him for his recognition, others showered hatred because of his hit at President.
“I love you all so much. Except for Donald Trump, he’s a piece of s***! Peace out, love you.”
Here’s how Twitterati reacted on Jack Black calling Donald Trump a piece of s***
I will never watch a video or a movie that you are in after listening to you today. So sad you got political.

Jack Black looks like Michael Moore, only fatter. One more “actor” to scratch off your list. https://t.co/ciMMUi6S2w

Hey @jackblack, I don’t know if you heard.. but, Republicans and conservatives also buy movie tickets and download music online. You know, those of us who understand lower taxes to the government means more spendable cash on nonessentials like movies and music? Use your brain.

You just loss half your fan base. So what that you don’t like Trump. Your right. You claim to do a lot for kids but you choose to use profanity and a politicize a good moment.
