Some celebrities have shocked their fans with out-of-the-ordinary behavior once in a while just for the thrills. However, the case of Christina Applegate, who recently received her Hollywood Walk of Fame star without shoes on, was due to an underlying medical condition, Multiple Sclerosis.

The 50-year-old actress’s appearance at the Hollywood Walk of Fame marked her first public outing since she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2021. Christina rocked a beautiful black pantsuit and had her hair in a loose wave that complemented her outfit. She, however, decided to go shoeless with a black manicure doing justice to her feet.

Christina stated that she chose comfortability over elegance at the event because of her medical condition. “Barefoot. For some with MS the feeling of shoes may hurt or make us feel off balance. So today I was me. Barefoot,” she explained. “Oh, by the way, I have a disease, Did you not notice? I’m not even wearing shoes. Anyhoo, you’re supposed to laugh at that.”
