Jenifer Lewis says her new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is the biggest award of her illustrious career … and she loves it so much, you’ll be able to find her there every day.
We got the “The Mother of Black Hollywood” author and “Black-ish” star Friday as she was leaving her ceremony and asked what her fixture on the Walk of Fame means to her.
Jenifer tells us the star is way more important than a trophy for a show or performance, because it’s forever lasting.
Jenifer’s got great company on the WoF — her star is parked right next to Katharine Hepburn — and she jokingly says she’s going to sleep next to it every night and drive by every day, telling folks not to step on her good name.
On a more serious note, Jenifer tells us she’s overwhelmed with appreciation for the career milestone — recalling all the work, on camera and off, that went into getting to this point … including taking care of her bipolar disorder.
Her famous friends showed her serious love at the ceremony … including Brandy, director Debbie Allen, ‘SNL’ alum Vanessa Bayer, composer Marc Shaiman and former “Amen” star Roz Ryan.
