Carrie Fisher's Fans Give Her a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Carrie Fisher's Fans Give Her a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Carrie Fisher wasn’t given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame before her passing so her fans have created one of their own.

The day after Carrie‘s untimely death, a blank star on Hollywood Boulevard appeared with the words “Carrie Fisher, May the force be with you always.”

Although fans are now asking that Carrie be given a real star on the Walk of Fame, that can’t happen for another five years.

Unfortunately, there is a five year waiting period after a celebrity’s passing before they can be posthumously nominated.

“There is a five year waiting period before anyone can nominate her. As much as we’d like to do it, there’s a policy. Many people want us to waive it, but we can’t,” Walk of Fame producer Ana Martinez explained.

Surprisingly, Carrie had never be nominated to receive a star.

    They gave Ryan Reynolds one, no one will remember about the guy in 50 years. Carrie and the Star Wars films are eternal and iconic. Maybe she didn’t buy herself one like most celebrities do.

    right? 20something ‘celebs’ with no talent and one film can get a star and she doesn’t? i guess they do pay to get one

    I was about to write the exact same thing… At least she doesn’t need one to be remembered.
