Thanks Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. I heard the news a week ago but had three days of filming to complete in London and a recording session for Dr. Doolittle stateside. Now that I’m finally getting back into this time zone I am able to process this huge honor. I thought the days of referring to myself as “class of” were behind me. I’m glad I was wrong. Congratulations to all honorees. #classof2020
