Christina Applegate gets Hollwood walk of fame star
Christina Applegate was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame on November 14.
She had not attended a public event since last August when she disclosed that she had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. In her address, she discussed her experience since then. Applegate shed tears as she thanked her family, who she claimed had “taken care of her everyday of her life,” and as she spoke about her daughter Sadie Grace Lenoble, 11, who had been there for her.
“The most important person in this world is my daughter,” said Applegate, who shares Sadie with her husband Martyn LeNoble. “You are so much more than even you know. You are so beautiful and kind and loving and smart and interesting
“I’m blessed every day that I get to wake up and take you to school. You are my everything. Thank you for standing by me through all of this.”
The Bad mon actress mentioned her MS;
“Oh, by the way, I have a disease,” she joked, receiving laughs from those in attendance. “Did you not notice? I’m not even wearing shoes.”
Applegate appeared for pictures in a black suit with co-stars from Dead to Me, Linda Cardellini, and Married… with Children while walking around barefoot and with a cane.
Upon hearing of her medical diagnosis, the showrunners proposed “calling the plug,” but Applegate was determined to carry on.
“But I was like, ‘No, no, no, no, no, no: We have to finish this story. It’s too important to our hearts; too important to our souls,'” she said. “So, if that meant me having to take a break in the middle of the day so I could go sleep—or me just leaving because I couldn’t do anymore—then that’s what we had to do.”
