Not at all. Any huge object can be seen as a point of mass at its center of mass when calculating the gravitational pull.
For example when calculating the earths gravitational pull, you take the entire mass of the earth and use its center as the point. So it is calculated as if it is simply a point of mass. This is the same for ANY object.
