There was a galaxy of stars on display as "Star Wars" star Mark Hamill received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But superstar Harrison Ford was quick to acknowledge the one star that has gone to a place far, far away: Princess Leia, aka Carrie Fisher, who died at 60 in 2016.

"When thinking about today," said Ford, 75, at the Thursday afternoon ceremony, "I was really sorry that we don't have the other member of our trio here to celebrate with us. But I feel her presence."

Ford didn't let the poignant moment linger, turning to Hamill, 66, to share an observation on crowd size. "A lot more people showed up for my star," Ford pointed out.
