Gwyneth Paltrow was on hand to celebrate her longtime friend and former "Brat Pack" member Rob Lowe on Tuesday as he received the 2,567th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Lowe's television and film career, which began with a role on ABC's A New Kind of Family in 1979, has gone on to span more than three decades, and earn him four Golden Globe nominations.

"When I was a little boy I was living in Dayton, Ohio, and I dreamed of one day finding my way to Hollywood to be an actor," the Grinder star told the assembled crowd. "And if you would have told me back then that I would be alongside Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, Paul Newman, I never ever would have believed it."

Paltrow, who costarred with Lowe in the 2003 movie, View from the Top, was the guest speaker at the ceremony. Paltrow nearly stole the show, however, in a soft pink David Koma minidress with a black ribbon sash that highlighted her lean physique and toned legs.
