But the honour of having one's place cemented on the Walk of Fame isn't for every performer. In fact, some of the biggest actors and musicians have knocked back the chance.
Watch: The auditions that scored actors their leading roles. Post continues below.
Firstly, these stars ain't cheap. It now costs a celebrity US$75,000 for the creation, installation and general upkeep of their star and over 2,750 others scattered along the 18-block stretch of footpath.
Secondly, the celebrity must commit to a date for their unveiling ceremony within five years or risk losing the nomination. And lastly, the process is long. A third party must nominate the celebrity, and then the application process goes on for a year.
Here are some big names who've turned down a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Pretty Woman star has four Oscar nominations to her name, but still no star.
Roberts was nominated for the accolade back in 1995 but declined, and rumour had it, she didn't like the idea of people on the street stepping on her name!
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce did put her up for a star again in 2019, but still, she wasn't interested.
