It's been quite the week for Hugh Jackman.

As if nabbing both SAG and Golden Globe nominations for his work in Les Misérables wasn't enough, the Aussie actor also became the latest recipient of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday.

Jackman, who was introduced at the ceremony by Jay Leno, had the support of costars Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried, who were both on hand to witness Jackman being honored.

"It's kind of a surreal day," Jackman told E! News. "I'll probably always remember Thursday, Dec. 13 and I think I'm either going straight from here to buy a lottery ticket or to a casino because it just feels like someone is looking down on me in a very nice way at this moment.

He added, "I'm excited. The star is right here outside where I got to host the Oscars and if the movie gets nominated [for an Oscar], it'll be nice to get up there and show a little bit of the show to everybody."

Congrats, Hugh!
