Kate Winslet is to be recognised with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
The late actor Richard Burton, famed for his hell-raising lifestyle and stormy romance with Elizabeth Taylor, is also getting the honour.
Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson, The Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Batman star Adam West, and A Clockwork Orange star Malcolm McDowell were also chosen to be recognised on the Walk Of Fame in Los Angeles.
Chairman of the selection committee John Pavlik said: "The committee has selected a fabulous slate of stars to add sparkle and lustre to the Hollywood Walk Of Fame over the next year, as well as to generate a once-in-a-lifetime Hollywood experience for many of the visitors who stop by when their favourite personalities are having their stars placed in the world-famous sidewalk of the stars."
Welsh actor Burton and Taylor's tempestuous life together is reported to be being made into a film by Goodfellas director Martin Scorsese.
Taylor, who died earlier this year aged 79, married eight times - twice to Burton.
