The famous Hollywood Walk of Fame currently boasts over 2,600 stars with the names of notable figures. However, you won't find Steven Seagal's name engraved there. Instead, the former action movie hero can claim a star on the Walk of Fame in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.

No Hollywood star has yet received such an honor. Furthermore, Steven Seagal has become only the sixth person in the world to have their name on the Sea Breeze Walk of Fame in Baku, Azerbaijan's capital. It's worth noting that this is not Seagal's first visit to Baku. A few months ago, he performed a guitar concert there and participated in several projects by Emin Agalarov, a leading Azerbaijani artist who oversees the Walk of Fame in his country.

As it turns out, Seagal has been friends with the folk artist for years. "I am grateful for the creativity that Emin brings into my life and for his friendship and support. It is a great joy for me to visit beautiful Baku again and take part in the ceremony of laying a personal star," said Seagal.

"We are honored to lay the star of Steven Seagal, who is my great friend. He is a true cinema legend, an amazing musician. Everyone loves him in Azerbaijan. I am honored to be his friend," said Emin Agalarov.

Steven Seagal has become the sixth person to have their name on the Sea Breeze Walk of Fame. Before him, this honor was bestowed upon Muslim Magomayev, Tamara Sinyavskaya, Nani Bregvadze, Engelbert Humperdinck, and Alessandro Safina.

In photos in Azerbaijani media, the former action movie hero, dressed in his traditional black outfit, is seen striding down the red carpet and greeting young people. Unfortunately, his recent activities are not limited to such innocent ceremonies. Two weeks ago, Seagal received the Order of Friendship from Vladimir Putin. Later, in a propaganda speech, he claimed that Ukraine is known, among other things, for child trafficking for sexual purposes and Nazism and fascism.
