Chairwoman and Walk of Fame star recipient Ellen K said in a statement: "The Selection Panel, made up of fellow Walk of Famers, hand-picks a group of honorees each year that represent various genres of the entertainment world. The panel thoughtfully selected these talented individuals, and we can’t wait to celebrate them as they become part of Hollywood’s history with the unveiling of their star on the world’s most famous walkway!”
Paul's daughter Meadow took to Instagram to celebrate her father's star, writing: "Hollywood Walk of Fame Class of 2023! Congratulations daddy! I know young you would never believe it! I also know you're embarrassed and grateful. You earned this and deserve it and more. I love you!"
