Ten A-List names are missing from the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, but it’s not because they don’t deserve to be recognized. Some of the actors just aren’t interested in a coral star. Most of the iconic celebrities on this list are Academy Award and Golden Globe Award winners and find those accolades more rewarding than a sidewalk star.
1. Julia Roberts
Roberts first began her successful acting career in 1988, starring in films like Mystic Pizza and Satisfaction. But her true breakout role was in the 1990 film Pretty Woman alongside Richard Gere. Throughout her career, Roberts earned two Golden Globe Awards and also received Academy Award nominations for Steel Magnolias and Pretty Woman. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in 2000’s Erin Brockovich. As one of the highest paid actresses worldwide, fans may be surprised to learn that Roberts reportedly does not want a star on the Walk of Fame.
2. George Lucas
It’s definitely hard to believe that the Stars Wars creator’s name is not yet engraved on a 5-point star. The screenwriter, director and producer began his film career in the 1960’s and is best known for his work on popular movies like Indiana Jones, American Graffiti, Star Wars and E.T. Lucas is one of the American film industry’s most financially successful filmmakers, and although he has been nominated for four Academy Awards, he has never won.
