Luda On Whether He Ever Expected To Have His Own Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame
When asked by Variety if he ever thought he would have his star on the Walk Of Fame, Luda scoffed.
“Get the f*** out of here. Not because a star was not possible. I don’t think that I could have seen that far down the line. When it came to music, I had blinders on at that time because I knew that I had so much to prove.”

He said he has the best jobs in the world, a “rock star and a movie star.”
“Now, I have much to prove in film and music — the two most sought-after dreams in the world, rock star and movie star. I’m loving it.”
Ludacris Talks Being””The Ultimate Girl Dad”
However, the honor comes as the actor looks to pivot into the””ultimate girl dad”” according to Luda himself. In an interview with PEOPLE earlier this month, Luda recently opened up about being a family man.
“We play a lot of games, 100%, and that’s exactly why Rice Krispies’ approach means so much to me,” he told PEOPLE. “They know that I love playing games, I’m a love-to-laugh type of guy. We play everything from Pictionary to Kids Against Maturity and Uno. We love having fun together.”
