HOLLYWOOD – Tyler Perry received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday. 

The movie icon had friends in attendance such as Crystal Fox, Idris Elba and Kerry Washington. 

Perry is known for his movies, good deeds and kind heart. Most recently used his personal plane to fly aid to the Bahamas. 

"So my hope is that anyone in this town--cause I see lots of people come here with their dreams in their hands and sometimes it doesn't work out or sometimes they give up," Perry said on Tuesday. "And for all those people whose dreams may be on life support, I want you to walk past this star in particular and know that I've been there."
