At the unveiling ceremony on Tuesday, he was joined by his wife Viveca Paulin and their three sons as well as his friends and co-stars including actors Kevin Hart, Molly Shannon and John C. Reilly, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The 47-year-old thanked his fans and cracked a joke during his acceptance speech.
"It goes without saying that I feel so fortunate, and yet I can't accept this award. So just cover it up, cover it up for someone else," Ferrell joked.
"I not only accept it, but I will be here every day from 3 to 5 P.M. polishing the star. You can count on that. And on those days that John's in the neighborhood, he will help me as well," he added.
Actor Reilly said: "Maybe some day, in 50 years, people will look down on the sidewalk and say the things that we say today about some of these people, 'Who the f**k is this guy?' But I hope not. This man is deserving of all the praise we give him today."
