“The Hollywood Walk of Fame makes an effort to place celebrities who work together or are a couple next to each other on our famed sidewalk,” stated Walk of Fame Producer Ana Martinez. “We’ve placed notable partners such as film producers Richard Donner and Lauren Shuler Donner next to each other’s star on the Walk of Fame. They were the first married couple to be honored on the same day with double stars on October 16, 2008. We honored married actors Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy with double stars on March 7, 2012. Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein who worked together on the Broadway hit “Kinky Boots” were recently honored with double stars as well. There are other related celebrities who have side by side double stars, but had separate ceremonies. They include: Bob and Dolores Hope, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Sherry Lansing and William Friedkin, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, Betty White and Allen Ludden, to name a few.
Helping Emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the stars were guest speakers Kate Hudson, Quentin Tarantino and Reese Witherspoon.
