Julia Louis-Dreyfus' laughs off Walk of Fame mistake

Thursday May 6, 2010

Being awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is usually a sign that a celebrity has left his or her mark on the entertainment world.

But for Seinfeld funnywoman Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the unveiling of her plaque didn't go quite as planned - just hours before the event, it read 'Julia Luis Dreyfus'.

The actress, who was joined by her family and co-stars from the sitcom, showed her sense of humour, laughing off the mistake after it was quickly rectified.

"The misspelling was so perfectly apt, a great metaphor for showbusiness," she said. "Right when you think you've made it, you get knocked down. It's an ideal metaphor for how this business works."

A permanent replacement will soon be installed in the famous sidewalk and Julia will receive a piece of the original as a keepsake.
