Oh, she DESERVES!!
One of the most well-known actresses with a 30+ year career under her belt, Jenifer Lewis, has finally received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
According MSN.com, “I’m glad I didn’t get this before now because I wouldn’t feel as deserving,” she said of the honor. “You know somebody said to me once, ‘You’ve never worked a day in your life,’ and I was like, ‘Whaaaat?’ But they were right, I’ve never worked, I have played in my life and showed up. I’m an entertainer, that’s what I am. People who call me an actress, they can call me whatever they want but what I am is an entertainer above all.”
The plaque sits next to late silver screen legend Katharine Hepburn, who remains one of her all time favorite actresses.
“They originally offered to place me next to a rapper and I hung up the phone on them,” Lewis joked to the Daily News. “It is apropos and very fitting that I am next to Katharine Hepburn. She was a rebel and she was before her time. I am totally honored, it’s amazing.”
Congratulations Jenifer Lewis! Love to see it.
