Julia Louis-Dreyfus' name mispelt on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Wednesday 05 May 2010
They misspelled Julia Louis-Dreyfus' name on her Hollywood Walk of Fame star, but the Emmy-winning star of "Seinfeld" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine" seemed tickled by the typo.
The mistake? The star read "Luis" instead of "Louis," and there was no hyphen between Louis and Dreyfus.
"The misspelling was so perfectly apt, a great metaphor for show business," Louis-Dreyfus said after the Tuesday-morning ceremony. "Right when you think you've made it, you get knocked down," she continues. "It's an ideal metaphor for how this business works."
Following the ceremony, it was announced that the last Walk of Fame honoree whose name was misspelled was actor Dick Van Dyke in 1993.
Attendees at the Louis-Dreyfus ceremony included cast and crew members of "Christine," as well "Seinfeld" director Andy Ackerman, co-star Jason Alexander and co-creator Larry David, who joked, "I am prepared to give up my nights and weekends to guard this (star) with my life from the filth and pollutants to which it's prone. Anyone who so much as sneezes near this area, while I'm on duty ... well, I'll say, 'God bless you,' but I won't be happy about it."
Louis-Dreyfus, 49, is the first "Seinfeld" principal to get the Walk of Fame honor, as well as the first to enjoy a successful follow-up series, "Christine," for which she won an Emmy in 2006. CBS has yet to announce whether it will renew the sitcom for 2010-11. "Oh, I certainly hope we'll be back," Louis-Dreyfus noted. "We love doing it. And I think it's very likely that we'll be back next season. Yes."
A spokeswoman for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which administrates the Walk of Fame ceremonies, said it would install a new, correctly spelled star and will be sending Louis-Dreyfus the erroneous "LUIS" and the accompanying chunks of pink-terrazzo star as souvenirs."
