The 'Seinfeld' actress wanted to keep the typo as it was, but workmen had temporarily fixed the error before she unveiled the star on Tuesday morning, May 4.

Getting her name carved in Hollywood Walk of Fame should be an honor for . But the Emmy-winning actress found it "hysterical" when she learned that her name was misspelled on the star.

The "" beauty was scheduled to unveil her star on Tuesday morning, May 4. But hours before the ceremony, CNN producer David Daniel who snapped a picture of the star found that her name was misspelled to become "Julia Luis Dreyfus", missing the "O" and a hypen.

David then contacted a press rep for the Walk of Fame Ana Martinez-Holler about the error. Later, workmen chiseled out the "Luis" and replaced it with a temporary "Louis" for the unveiling. The star will be permanently repaired soon.

Julia, in the meantime, thought the typo was hilarious that she actually wanted to keep as it was. "The misspelling was so perfectly apt, a great metaphor for show business," she said as quoted by Associated Press after the ceremony. "Right when you think you've made it, you get knocked down. It's an ideal metaphor for how this business works."
