In his speech at the ceremony, the actor invited all the attendees to his home for a party.

"What is the appropriate way to celebrate Jeff Goldblum day?" Goldblum asked the crowd.

"Get liquored up and then all go to my house for a pool party," he added.

The actor also recognized other stars who will be getting their own star on the Walk of Fame this year, including Jack Black, Kirsten Dunst and Jennifer Lawrence.

Goldblum said acting has always been his passion but he is reminded to keep his ego in check.

"I was in the airport the other day and a woman was looking at me and walked up to me sort of in a trance and she said, 'May I ask you a question?' And I said, 'Yes, of course you can.' And she said, 'Are you Howie Mandel?'," Goldblum recalled.

"That's true. A bitter pill, but a very good lesson, you can't get too full of yourself," he added.
