Morris Chestnut, best known for his work in films such as “Boyz n the Hood,” “The Brothers,” “The Perfect Holiday,” “Think Like a Man,” “The Best Man,” and its sequel, “The Best Man Holiday,” received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. The prestigious event reportedly took place around 11:30 a.m on Hollywood Blvd between Cahuenga and Ivar Avenues. Chestnut said he wanted the day to be a celebration of his lifelong friends who have supported him throughout his whole entire career.
“So it’s really been tough for me to really be able to navigate this industry, because it takes a lot out of me, and every time I do come up and do things like this, and people don’t realize it,” he said. “So first and foremost, I want to thank God for blessing me and allowing me to be able to do that, to be able to go outside of myself and be in an industry where you have to go outside of yourself and be these characters. … Friendship is very important to me. For me it’s always been a concerted effort, so I want to make sure that Hollywood is a part of my life, but it was not my life. So my longstanding friendships have always been extremely important to me.
Chestnut will reprise his “The Best Man” role in “The Best Man Wedding: The Final Chapters,” a 10-episode limited series that will stream on Peacock.
