About Time! Celebrities Who Finally Got A Star On The Walk Of Fame
Planning a trip to the Hollywood Walk of Fame sometime soon? Even though there are nearly 3,000 stars moving up and down that long walk, there are a lot of deserving celebrities who have been left out for a long time while newer, more popular celebrities have been receiving such honors sooner than later. But just around the time we were all wondering if these celebrities were ever going to get their own star, they were finally immortalized on Hollywood Blvd.
So the next time you make a trip to that other H-Town, be sure to be on the lookout for these stars who were recently added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“Happy” was Pharrell’s latest hit to blow the charts away. But he was making hits long before the minions were dancing along to his tune. Did you know that one of Pharrell’s first hits was “Rumpshaker” way back in 1992? Talk about a Hollywood star that’s overdue!
Mariah Carey could probably pave her own Walk of Fame with hit singles, but since she finally got her star in August of last year, she won’t have to!
The New Kids On The Block
New Kids On The Block’s star came just in time to make all of their fans feel really old: Almost2 30 years after their first album.
Steve Carell brought in the New Year in 2016 with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And although it doesn’t feel that long, it’s 11 years after the first episode of The Office aired.
David Duchovny also got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year, just in time for the X-Files to roll around again!
Kate Winslet became a huge star thanks to Titanic, which came out back 1997. Seven Academy Award nominations and one Oscar later, she joined the Walk of Fame in 2014.
Want to have a few laughs in Hollywood? The Parks and Recreation star was honored with a star on the walk of fame in 2015. Unfortunately, her partner in crime, Tina Fey has yet to get a star (but we hope that when she does, they’ll be right next to one another!)
You know an actor is overdue for a star when you genuinely assumed they already had one. But if we did, we’d be wrong. McConaughey just got his star in November 2014!
Speaking of stars we thought were already on the walk of fame, Quentin Tarantino just got his star in December 2015.
It’s adorable and about time. America has been watching CA Charlie Brown Christmas special since 1965!
Kool & the Gang
The funky group got their star last year for their 50th anniversary.
“This should have happened immediately after My So-Called Life,” said every ’90s kid.
But things could be worse. While Caire Danes didn’t get her star until September 2015, Jordan Catalano (Jared Leto) still doesn’t have a star.
Luther Vandross may have passed away way before he was given a star in June 2014, but fans can now visit it to remember the music legend.
They gave Jada Pinkett-Smith a star on the Miami walk of fame, so we guess that’s something…
