for her portrayal of Rachel Green in "Friends," became the first

Walk of Fame at a ceremony held Wednesday.
She was joined by comedian Adam Sandler, "Wanderlust" co-stars Malin Akerman and Kathryn Hahn, boyfriend Justin Theroux and her father John Aniston who gathered outside The W Hollywood Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard.
"She prayed for three things," Sandler said, referring to the 43- year-old star's dream.

Aniston received the 2,462nd star on the famous stretch of street, two days before the release of her latest comedy " Wanderlust" in which she starred with Paul Rudd and Theroux.
