Christina Applegate celebrated receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday.

The event marked Applegate’s first public appearance since sharing her multiple sclerosis diagnosis last year. The actress reflected on her career in an emotional speech full of heart and humor.

“I’ve had a very interesting life,” Applegate said. “Life began when I was a little girl, waiting in line to see the first ‘Star Wars’ on this very street, in that very theater, watching these [stars on the street] going, ‘who are these people?’ what did they do Did they do something right? Have they done something wrong? Whatever it is, I want one. I want one! And I was five years old. So this day means more to me than you can imagine.”

Applegate was honored at the event by several current and former colleagues, including her “Married…With Children” TV family Katey Sagal and David Faustino, and her “Dead To Me” co-star Linda Cardellini .

“You are my everything. I love that it started with you two,” she said, referring to Faustino and Sagal, who stood by her side as she spoke. “I thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. You are my people. You are my love.”

In a recent interview with the New York Times, Applegate talked about the effort it took to finish filming the third and final season of “Dead to Me,” which premieres on Netflix later this week.

“If people hate it, if people love it, if all they can focus on is, ‘Oh, look at the pillow,’ that’s not up to me,” she told the publication. “I’m sure people will say, ‘I can’t get over it.'”

“Okay, don’t miss it, then,” he added. “But hopefully people can get over it and enjoy the ride and say goodbye to these two girls.”

Applegate cried as she addressed her daughter in the crowd at Monday’s ceremony.

“Thank you for being there for me through all of this,” Applegate said, before joking to the audience, “Oh, by the way, I have a disease. Haven’t you noticed? I don’t even have shoes on… suppose you have to laugh at it!”
