A Hollywood star is getting a facelift but the luminary in question isn't a she or even a he. This star is the Hollywood sign.
The sign was rebuilt 35 years ago. Starting today, it will be stripped down to sheet metal, primed and given a new coat of white paint. It will take 10 weeks.
When the sign was first built in the early 1920s, it read "Hollywoodland." It promoted a real estate development.
