Julia Louis-Dreyfus' name misspelled on Walk of Fame star

    

       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 ceremony. "Right when you think you've made it, you get knocked down," she continued. "It's an ideal metaphor for how this business works."
Following the ceremony, it was announced that the last Walk of Fame honouree 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 as "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 honour, as well as the first to enjoy a successful follow-up series, "Christine," for which she won an Emmy in 2006.-The Telegraph
