Roger Moore receives Hollywood star

Roger Moore, famous for his James Bond role, now has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of an address that includes the spy's signature 007.

Moore, 79, received his permanent spot on Hollywood Boulevard on Thursday, accompanied by friends and family.

Moore made seven Bond films, starting with "Live and Let Die" in 1973 and ending 12 years later with "A View to a Kill." The British actor paid homage to the number of women he kissed on-screen adapting Ian Fleming's leading man.

"Sadly, I had to retire from the Bond films," Moore said. "The girls were getting younger or I was just getting too old."

Moore has done some acting in film and television since leaving the Bond franchise. He has raised funds for UNICEF in underdeveloped countries and received a Commander of the British Empire award from the British government in 1999. He also was awarded a knighthood in 2003 for his work with UNICEF.

Moore's star sits in front of 7007 Hollywood Boulevard, an ice cream parlor that boasts it is the birthplace of the hot fudge sundae.

Pierce Bronsan is the only other actor who played Bond on the big screen to receive a star on the Walk of Fame.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
