You know you’ve made it in Hollywood when you receive a formal invitation into the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Several actors, directors, producers, and others have been sent invites to the exclusive “club,” which only allows 6000 members at any given time.
In fact, his Pineapple Express co-star James Franco also got an invite, proving a movie primarily about an illegal substance is considered art in this town!
Head of the Academy Sid Ganis said in a statement "These filmmakers have, over the course of their careers, captured the imagination of audiences around the world. It's this kind of talent and creativity that make up the Academy, and I welcome each of them to our ranks."
The new members will be honored at an invitation-only reception in Beverly Hills this September. Here are a list of the actor invitees:
