There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Screen Queen of England and Queen of our hearts Dame Helen Mirren's star power became literal Thursday…
When she celebrated her initiation onto the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame!
Mz. Mirren beamed beneath a bright blue gown and jacket ensemble as she expressed her enthusiasm over finally being inducted into the exclusive Hollywood Blvd. star club.
The Hitchcock actress joked:
"I couldn't be prouder and more happy that I'm actually going to finally lie next to Colin Firth - something I've been wanting to do for a very long time.
I'm so very, very proud to be henceforth walked upon, have fries dropped upon - maybe even be peed upon by future generations of tourists, Angelinos and their dogs. But please, please, no chewing gum.
I count myself as very lucky to be receiving this honor at this end of my life/ My Hollywood dream was not broken. I'm living it right now. I am finally a part of that history I love. Thank you so much, everybody."
Oh man that lady prods at our funny bone so sweetly with her HIGHlarious jests!
Congratulations, Helen Mirren for OWNING the 2,588th Hollywood star…
An honor so long deserved!
