When Julia Louis-Dreyfus unveiled her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, her worst nightmare was realized. She appears on today's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and tells the host how the star committee flubbed her name.
As she was pampering herself for the ceremony, her publicist called. Julia "sensed" by the tone in her voice that "they spelled my name wrong."
While most people would burst into tears, Julia took the misfortune in stride. "Getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is spectacular, but…it was a gift on top of a gift to have this happen," she said. The error attracted a lot of extra press coverage.
Julia told Ellen that the copy editor for CNN discovered it as he observed the installation. He took a photograph and reported the mistake.
