15 Surprising Actors Who Don't Have Stars On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame


Some of the most famous and impactful actors in American film history, including Al Pacino, Julia Roberts, and Denzel Washington, shockingly do not have stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.Many celebrities, including Donald Trump and fictional characters like Mickey Mouse, have stars on the Walk of Fame, making the omission of these big-name actors even more surprising.It is unclear why these actors have not received stars, with reasons ranging from declining the offer to not seeing value in having a star. The lack of stars raises questions about the meaning and importance of the star for elite actors.

Some of the most prolific actors of all time shockingly don't have stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Several household names that are widely considered some of the most famous and impactful actors in American film history are incredibly left out of the celebrated Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. The landmark and tourist attraction features more than 2,750 names, each with its own star as a commemoration of their success in the spotlight of the highlight competitive industry. Even some of the biggest actors who have ever lived have still not earned their place for a variety of reasons.

The fact that the following big-name actors haven't gotten their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is made even more shocking by some of the actors and celebrities who did get one. Most notably, Donald Trump has a star that has inspired a protest to be replaced due to recent events. Several names on the Hollywood Walk of Fame also belong to fictional characters, ranging from Big Bird and Bugs Bunny to Mickey Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, and The Simpsons.

15 Al Pacino

Al Pacino, known for his iconic performances in movies such as

and what is often referred to as the greatest film ever made, , is shockingly not included on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Pacino is considered one of the greatest and most influential actors of the 20th century, and he still hasn't received the coveted star despite receiving nine Oscar nominations and one win in 1993 for .

14 Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts, one of the most prominent female lead actors of the 1990s and 2000s, has not received her coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Roberts has been awarded four Oscar nominations, and won for Best Actress in 2000's , but no star. She was nominated for the star in 1995 but reportedly declined due to the idea that she didn't like people on the street stepping on her name.

13 Denzel Washington

Denzel Washington, another household Hollywood name whose reputation and skill as an actor go without saying, does not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Despite his massive success and influence, and the fact that he was nominated and selected for a Hollywood Walk of Fame star decades ago, Washington has professed that he doesn't care for maintaining relationships with Hollywood types outside of work, which might contribute to his indifference towards the star altogether.

12 Leonardo DiCaprio

Another actor whose lack of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is unthinkable is none other than Leonardo DiCaprio, who is arguably the biggest movie star in the world. DiCaprio of course was nominated but apparently declined the acceptance of the star, likely due to the process involved in its implementation which involves showing up to the public unveiling and paying a fee of $40,000. This might not have been worth it to the accomplished actor, at least not now.

11 Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has also not gotten a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame despite clearly being nominated for her outstanding work in numerous feature films such as and . It's widely believed that Jolie's only reason for not getting the star is that she's incredibly busy, but as time goes on it may become more evident that she simply doesn't want to show up (or pay the fee) for her own party.

10 Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt surprisingly doesn't have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, despite being one of Hollywood's truly biggest stars in real life. He likely subscribes to the same notion that DiCaprio and his former spouse Jolie do when it comes to the star by not seeing any actual value in having it installed. He might find the process and price unnecessary, which are likely reasons why he's probably just not interested.

9 Steve Martin

Steve Martin is one of the biggest names in comedy of all time and does not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

It's pretty funny considering one of the most influential names in comedy doesn't have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame while lesser-known Martins such as former pop singer Ricky Martin do. There is no public information regarding why Martin doesn't have a star.

8 James Earl Jones

James Earl Jones, the voice of two of the most iconic movie characters of all time,in Star Wars and Mufasa in , does not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The iconic actor has an honorary Academy Award but no star.

7 George Clooney

Another mind-blowing omission on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is George Clooney. Clooney has undoubtedly been nominated and offered a star but had apparently declined for personal reasons that he has never publicly commented on. Perhaps he is waiting for the end of his career to accept the honor.

6 Christopher Walken

Iconic actor Christopher Walken does not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which is somewhat alarming considering his age as his window to personally accept the award is closing at 80 years old.

There is apparently a Facebook group petitioning for Walken to be added, but he likely declined the offer, or else he would obviously have a star.

5 Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck's career is far from over, but that still doesn't explain why he hasn't received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Oscar-winning writer/director has demonstrated his abilities across various creative departments, making a star well-deserved but, for some reason, not a reality.

4 Clint Eastwood

Another mammoth-sized figure of cinema that lacks a Hollywood Walk of Fame star is Clint Eastwood. Eastwood is a big factor for the popularity of modern Western movies after his trilogy. He is also an accomplished director who has made prominent works such as , , and .

3 Meg Ryan

Meg Ryan, known for her memorable roles in and does not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The prominent actress certainly deserves a star, but it is unknown why she doesn't have one.

2 Jim Carrey

The fact that Jim Carrey doesn't have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is simply astounding when considering his iconic movies such as and . He is one of the most unique and celebrated actors of all time who must get his coveted star at some point in the near future.

1 Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro is yet another incredibly talented and successful actor who does not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Considering how many classic Hollywood icons don't have their stars, it's worth questioning what the value of the star actually means to the most elite actors in the entertainment industry.
