Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Name On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame Was Misspelled

May 5, 2010 Julia Louis

Julia Louis-Dreyfus' name is spelled with an "o" and a hyphen, thank you very much. Even after two successful sitcoms - "Seinfeld" and "The New Adventures of Old Christine" - not everyone still knows how to spell the 49-year-old actress' name, just ask the Hollywood Walk of Fame committee.

Four hours before the unveiling of Julia's star on the iconic Walk of Fame, CNN's David Daniel noticed something peculiar. The comedienne's name was spelt "Julia Luis Dreyfus," clearly missing an "o" in her Louis and a hyphen in between it and Dreyfus.

He then called the press rep for the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Anna Martinez-Holler, to inform her of the gaffe. A couple of hours later, the rep called back, saying she almost "puked" over the glaring mistake.

She also said that Julia thought the blunder was hysterical and asked them to leave it as such, but officials already ordered the misspelled "Luis" be chiseled out and replaced with a temporary "Louis-" just in time for the unveiling.

Julia, being the funny lady that she is, was given the "Luis" as a memento.
