Reese and Penelope Gets STAR on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Two of the most promising actress in the movie industry recently got their STAR in the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a series of sidewalks along both sides of a 15-block segment of Hollywood Boulevard and a 3-block segment of Vine Street in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA that serves as a permanent public monument to achievement in the entertainment industry. 

Reese Witherspoon joined the elite group of entertainers with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame recently, and the Oscar winner revealed, "Never in 462 million years did I think this was going to happen to me. I thought I was going to live in Tennessee and be a doctor."   

Witherspoon is one of Hollywood’s most sought after and respected actresses. She grew up in Tennessee, and returned to her roots to play June Carter Cash in the musical biopic, “Walk the Line.” Her performance earned her the 2005 Academy Award® for Best Actress, the BAFTA, the Golden Globe, the Screen Actors Guild Award, the New York Film Critics Award, and many other honors.

The actress was accompanied by her two children, daughter Ava, 11, and seven-year-old son Deacon, for the induction ceremony which was held outside the W Hotel in Los Angeles. Reese looked stunning in a black and red polka dot dress as she was presented with her tribute – the 2,425th star dedication on the famous avenue. Her boyfriend, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was also there to see his girlfriend receive the accolade.

In anticipation of the release of her new film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” in theaters May 20, 2011, Penelope Cruz received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame April 1, in front of the El Capitan Theatre, 6834 Hollywood Boulevard. She became the first Spanish performer to receive this honor – the 2,436th star to be placed on the Walk of Fame. 

An Academy Award® winner Penelope Cruz has proven herself to be one of the most versatile actresses by playing a variety of compelling characters, and most recently, becoming the first actress from Spain to be nominated and to win an Oscar®. 

The 36-year-old Cruz wore a form-fitting purple tube dress just two months after giving birth to her son Leonardo, and was presented the award by Rob Marshall, director of “On Stranger Tides.” Cruz was accompanied in the ceremony by husband Javier Bardem and Johnny Depp, her co-star in the new installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” saga.
