Walk Of Fame
Honorees For 2012

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce released a list of the celebrities that will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012, including Vin Diesel, Jennifer Aniston and Kate Winslet. Who hasn’t received a star? Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Redford, among others!

Is Vin Diesel a bigger star than Leonardo DiCaprio? It appears the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce thinks so!

Vin Diesel and Leonardo DiCaprio

The Walk of Fame honorees for 2012 have just been announced. "These individuals were chosen from among hundreds of nominations to the committee at a meeting held on June 17, 2011 and ratified by the Chamber's Board of Directors," the announcement from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce reads.

Those that will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012 include Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson, Kate Winslet, John Lasseter, Valerie Bertinelli, Matt Groening, Mariska Hargitay, Patricia Heaton, Marg Helgenberger, Adam West, Boyz II Men, David Foster, Vince Gill, Jennifer Lopez, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, and Vin Diesel.

This is a distinguished and, for the most part, much-deserved list of celebrities to receive a star. However, why have A-list stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Al Pacino and Robert Redford not yet received a star on the Walk of Fame?

The LA Times reports there are a number of reasons why hot celebrities do not have a star, including they may not want one! Also, they must be nominated, selected and agree to attend and pay for the ceremony. They must also be "in their field" for at least five years, leaving many Hollywood newcomers off the list.

maybe this star thing in cement is sort of like worshiping false idols or something----maybe stay clear of that...

Vin Deisei deserves to have his star on the Boulevard NOW !!! He as a fan base on Facebook of over 43.5 million, because we enjoy his acting, directing, writing,and production of some of his films. Please it is 2013 and this is going to be his best year thus far. Do the right thing and get his star on the Walk of Fame. Thank you, Sharon Parcells

I'm sure people like Leo DiCaprio, GC, Robert Deniro just don't want a star, Walk of Fame has lost its magic years ago, now everybody knows if you want to have a star, just pay the money and you'll get one. It's anything but exclusive these days

Why doesn't TLC have a star yet?

I like Vin Diesel. Maybe its his time to shine. Leo's a great actor too but maybe not his time yet to have the Hollywood star. Please share this celebrity gossip at www.lifo. It is a fun site for girls that allows them to share beauty and fashion ideas as well as share celebrity gossips.
