Christina Applegate was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday and observant types may have noticed that she had bare feet for the occasion.
That night, Applegate took to Twitter to explain that her barefoot look had to do with her MS; she revealed she’d been diagnosed in August 2021.

“For some with MS the feeling of shoes may hurt or make us feel off balance,” she wrote, accompanying a photo of her star. “So today I was me. Barefoot.”
