A new batch of Hollywood's finest has been given the glorious stars on the prestigious Hollywood Walk of Fame and as shocking as it might sound, phenomenal talents from the industry, like Julia Roberts and Spike Lee are just now getting their star.

It comes as a shock considering the number of effortless skills Roberts has channeled in every role she has undertaken for the screen, or the otherworldly charm of Lee's films which have garnered major respect over the years, emphasizing on social issues, to say the least. 

 

Roberts struck all the right chords with one of her initial performances in 'Pretty Woman' opposite Richard Gere and since then has gone on to release countless hits such as the relentless titular character in 'Erin Brockovich', the out of the box thinking teacher in 'Mona Lisa Smile', and the angry, frustrated middle-aged daughter struggling to not be a spitting image of her self- destructive mother in 'August: Osage County'. As for Lee, his remarkable works in films like 'Inside Man', 'Chi-Raq', 'BlacKkKlansman', with roles in ten of his own films. So yes, this accolade was long overdue for both of them!
