Oscar-winning actress Sally Field has finally got a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame more than three decades after she earned her first Academy Award.

The 67-year-old joked about her roller-coaster career spanning five decades, including her Oscar-winning performances in 1979's Norma Rae and 1984's Places in the Heart.

"I've ridden the highs, and tried to learn from the lows," she said on Hollywood Boulevard, where her star is the 2,524th on the famous stretch of sidewalk perused by millions of tourists ever year, at the heart of Tinseltown.

"I've done a love scene with a pelican.

"But then I've also done a love scene with Paul Newman," she said, adding that during her career she had appeared fully-clothed, part-clothed and completely naked.

Field, who was nominated for an Oscar last year for Steven Spielberg's historical drama Lincoln, appears in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which has just topped the North American box office on its debut weekend.

The actress reprises her role as Peter Parker's Aunt May in the movie, which made over US$90 million (NZ$104m), outperforming the 2012 original that went on to gross $262 million.
