Christina Applegate rocks MS-themed manicure at Walk of Fame ceremony
Christina Applegate is giving a big “f–k you” to multiple sclerosis.
The actress, 50, made her first public appearance since announcing in August that she was diagnosed with MS.
Applegate stepped out in Los Angeles on Monday to receive a star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The “Dead to Me” star rocked all black and accessorized with a walking stick — along with a manicure featuring a message.
Applegate showed off the black nail polish to the camera, revealing a letter on each finger that spelled out “fu MS.”
Ahead of the event, the actress took to social media to show just how she was preparing for the major outing, posting a photo of multiple types of walking aids.
“I have a very important ceremony coming up,” she wrote alongside a snap of five different styles of walking sticks earlier this month.
“This will be my first time out since diagnosed with MS. Walking sticks are now part of my new normal,” she added. “Stay tuned to see which ones make the cut for a week of stuff.”
It appears Applegate opted for the spiral black and crystal style — and has plenty of others to choose from for future events.
The blond beauty was joined at Monday’s event by her “Dead to Me” co-star Linda Cardellini, as well as Katey Sagal and David Faustino from “Married With Children.” She thanked her friends, family and daughter Sadie in her speech, saying, “Thank you for standing beside me for all of this. Oh, by the way, I have a disease. Did you not notice? I’m not even wearing shoes!”
And while she may have skipped footwear, Applegate’s appearance certainly made an impression on fans.
“@1capplegate really is the poster child of perseverance. Her unbelievable talent and devotion to her craft is truly admirable and she absolutely deserves this spot of the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” one person tweeted.
