(LOS ANGELES) — Michael Keaton received the 2,585th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday.
The 64-year-old actor, whose star was dedicated in front of Madame Tussauds Hollywood on Hollywood Boulevard, said it was an honor he never expected.
“To say this is a dream is kind of incorrect because I never really thought about being famous,” Keaton told the crowd. “It’s not something I really thought of. It sure is fun.”
His goal for his career, he explained, was to simply “be good.”
“I want to see how good I can get and that’s the great thing about my job, is that that’s a never-ending quest,” he said.
Keaton’s most well-known earlier credits include Beetlejuice, Mister Mom and Batman. Most recently, he’s starred in the Oscar-winning films Birdman and Spotlight.
His upcoming projects are The Founder, about the founder of McDonald’s, and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
