It seems appropriate for Ana Martinez to recall a most embarrassing moment in her storied Hollywood Walk of Fame star-wrangling career via an article on CNN.com. It was after all a CNN TV producer who alerted the curator-in-chief, just hours before a May 4 2010 ceremony, that the name of recipient Julia Louis-Dreyfus was misspelled and missing the hyphen. (A hastily created masking tape correction was affixed to the star.)
So how does Martinez look back on the incident today?
“I was really upset. I pride myself on everything going perfect,” said Martinez. She now has the star installers text a picture of the lettering before they cement it into the star, she said.
