Ron Howard has received his second star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His first star lauded his acting career for roles on The Andy Griffith Show and Happy Days. This second star is for his career as a film maker.

"Two stars are pretty remarkable...I'm going to have double the foot traffic, twice as many people treading on my good name, but I think it's a great thing and I'm proud of that," Ron Howard said at the ceremony--with daughter Bryce Dallas Howard by his side--on Thursday.

"However, my ambitions run deep, so two is good, three would be better and I've got a lot of energy," he added.

Ron Howard won as Oscar for Best Director for A Beautiful Mind. He has received numerous accolades for Apollo 13 and The Da Vinci Code, too.

"I have so few regrets, practically none, and one of them is just only that it's been far too long since Michael (Keaton) and I made a movie together, so I'm hoping to rectify that sooner rather than later," Howard said during the ceremony.

Michael Keaton joined Ron Howard and his family for the event.

Ron Howard has a new film opening in theaters tonight. In the Heart of the Sea stars Chris Hemsworth.

There's no question that Ron Howard has devoted his entire life to the entertainment industry. From his days as Opie on The Andy Griffith Show to Richie Cunningham on Happy Days--and then all those films. Ron Howard earned both of his stars--and will no doubt continue impressing fans for a long time to come.
