Kate Winslet is to be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 38-year-old actress will be the 2,520th star to receive an honour, and the unveiling is set to take place early next week with 'Titanic' director James Cameron and Kate's co-star in the film Kathy Bates presenting her with the accolade outside of the W Hollywood Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, on Monday (17.03.14), according to Hollywood.com.

Producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, Ana Martinez, said of the new addition: ''We are so happy that Kate Winslet will be here on our famous Boulevard of dreams receiving her well-deserved star.

''We've seen Kate shine in her roles and fans around the world have been anxiously waiting for this special day to come.''

Other actresses who have been added to the star-studded pavement recently include 'Non Stop' star Julianne Moore and Glee's Jane Lynch.

The news comes just weeks after Kate admitted that she doesn't really know any celebrities, despite being good friends with 'Titanic' co-star Leonardo Dicaprio, because she doesn't watch reality television.

She said previously: ''I literally stand at this bank of magazines going, 'Who are all these people?' Half the time, I don't even know who they are!

''Now there's a lot of focus on television stars and soap stars and these real-life Kardashian-type families.''
