Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise sandwich in producer Jerry Bruckheimer

Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise joined Jerry Bruckheimer as he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday.

The A-list actors showed their support to the Hollywood super-producer - who is behind Johnny's hit 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films and Tom's star-making movie 'Top Gun' - as he was given a plaque on the famous sidewalk in Los Angeles, California.

Johnny, who reunited with Jerry for new Western film 'The Lone Ranger', paid tribute to his close friend and credited him with changing his life after he accepted the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the swashbuckling family flicks.

He said: "My path was fortunate enough to collide with this man some years ago, and certainly since my collaboration with Jerry, my life has never been the same and probably won't be for a while, anyway.

"Without Jerry, there would be no 'Pirates...', there would be no Captain Jack. Without Jerry, there would be no 'Lone Ranger', there would be no reinvigorated Tonto. So I have a lot to thank him for. The man is a legend to me, a legend to us all, hence this congregation to celebrate him for his long-deserved star on the Walk of Fame."

Johnny and Tom, both 50, posed for photos with their 67-year-old friend and were also joined by comedian Martin Lawrence, who offered his congratulations to Jerry after starring in his hit action franchise 'Bad Boys' with Will Smith.

Other stars who showed their support included Marg Helgenberger, who starred in Jerry's hit TV franchise 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation', Jon Voight and 'Pirates of the Caribbean' director Gore Verbinski.
