For those involved in the entertainment industry, getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is an amazing honor. However, people who’ve never visited the walkway in Los Angeles might not realize that it isn’t all glitz and glamor.
When I went to LA, I was pretty surprised by how un-glamorous the walk actually was. It’s just a stretch of sidewalk, and people meander along it on their way to work, the grocery store, and other errands. That means it gets pretty dirty, as do the beloved stars imprinted on it.
Many celebrities are probably a little too busy to check up on their Walk of Fame stars regularly, but actress Reese Witherspoon recently took a trip to visit her own. Apparently, she decided it was a little too dirty for her taste!
Reese got her star in 2010, according to E! News. In February 2018, she posted a video on her Instagram Stories after she realized she was close to her star and wanted to pay it a quick visit. When she got there, Reese found the area in pretty dirty condition. Having been walked all over, there was plenty of dirt stuck to it. So, she took it upon herself to clean it up, documenting the entire process on her Stories.
I don’t think I could ever be convinced to get on my knees and wipe down the dirty streets of Los Angeles, but Reese didn’t seem to have a problem with it! In fact, her star looked perfectly shiny after just a little elbow grease!
