Five days after the season premiere of "Damages," Glenn Close today fell head over heels when she was honored with the 2,378th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame outside the Roosevelt Hotel.

"To be considered a star is one thing, but to be embedded in the sidewalk with life passing over us, that for me is the best part of this honor," she said. "Five-inch heels, flip-flops, Birkenstocks, dropped ice cream cones, the odd tobacco squirt, baby carriages, roller blades, skateboards, wheelchairs -- bring it all on." And she literally meant that by sucking face with the sidewalk. Luckily, today was the day her star will be the cleanest it ever will be.
