Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable, Tom Hanks and Brad Pitt. And now Kobe Bryant? At the legendary Graumann’s Chinese Theater, Hollywood’s elite have perched on their hands and feet for almost a century to make timeless hand and foot prints in cement. In an unprecedented move, a non-actor will earn the accolade and get his prints made next month. The L.A. Lakers star will become the first athlete to receive the honor!
Kobe will become the first athlete to have a hand and foot print ceremony at the legendary theater. As part of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend on Feb. 19 he is expected to join the ranks of more than 200 other famous celebrities (and by that, we mean all non-athletes).
What do you think? Should hand and foot print ceremonies be restricted for entertainers only or should more athletes receive the honor, too?
