Sir Anthony Hopkins, Halle Berry and Britney Spears are among the celebrities who will be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.

The list of inductees for 2004 also includes Glenn Close, Kevin Costner and director John Singleton.

Child stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will also be getting their own star.

Despite only being 17-years-old, the twins have had a long and lucrative Hollywood career, with their own brand of TV shows, films, clothes and dolls worth more than $1bn.

The announcement of the future inductees was made by the chairman of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Johnny Grant.

He said: "There's a favourite on this list for everybody. We have both young and veteran performers and local, national and international stars.

"The induction ceremonies will generate a lot of excitement for our residents and visitors from around the world."

The stars were selected from hundreds of nominations and represent film, television, radio, theatre and music.

Among those who have received stars so far this year have been Australian actress Nicole Kidman and Steven Spielberg.

Veteran actor Bob Hope was honoured with a special "citizen of the century" star as he celebrated his 100th birthday.

Although he could not attend himself, family and friends gathered for the unveiling of a bronze plaque that will sit next to the four stars he already has on the Walk of Fame.
