The likes of Aaron Sorkin, Marcia Cross and Vanessa Williams are among those witnessing the duo being the second married couple to receive his and her stars on the same day.
William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman have become the second married couple to have been awarded with his and her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at the same time. On Wednesday, March 7, the Hollywood couple who have been married for nearly 12 years stepped out to the Hollywood Boulevard for a rare "double-star ceremony".
During their joined acceptance speech, Macy joked about what went through his mind when he first saw Huffman. "The first time I saw Felicity she was doing a scene for acting class wearing a silk, cream-colored blouse with no bra. I thought, 'Man, this girl is talented,' " he said. Returning the compliment, Huffman quipped, "The first time I saw Bill, he was wearing an Izod shirt with a tie. I thought 'Man, is his wife gorgeous.' "
They didn't stop there as Macy revealed, "The first time we ever did it in a dressing room at a theater was in a play called 'OH Hell' by David Mamet...at Lincoln Center. We got good reviews." Huffman then chimed in, "The first time we ever did it in a dressing room at a studio, was in a series called Sports Night by Aaron Sorkin...at ABC. We got our first child."
For the special occasion, Huffman was lovely in a classic little black dress and matching pointed court shoes, while her husband, Macy, looked sleek in a charcoal suit with a matching tie and a blue and white striped shirt. They were joined by their two daughters, 11-year-old Sophie and 9-year-old Georgia.
Also present at the unveiling ceremony were some of the couple's industry colleagues, screenwriter/producer Aaron Sorkin and director David Mamet. Huffman's "Desperate Housewives" co-stars, Marcia Cross and Vanessa Williams also came to offer their supports.
