LOS ANGELES (AP) — "Two and a Half Men" star Jon Cryer has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 46-year-old actor was honored Monday and becomes the 2,449th person to receive a Hollywood sidewalk star.

Cryer made his film debut in the 1984 romantic comedy "No Small Affair," and was best known for his role in "Pretty in Pink" before landing a spot on CBS' "Two and a Half Men." He has received six consecutive Emmy nominations for supporting actor in a comedy series, winning two years ago.

Among those Cryer thanked was former "Two and a Half" co-star Charlie Sheen, who was fired from the show earlier this year after feuding with the producer and studio. Sheen was replaced by Ashton Kutcher, who attended the star ceremony.
