November 20, 2004

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Actor Tim Allen received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday and declared it just the beginning of major neighborhood improvements.

``Stop traffic! All these buildings will be named after me!″ the former ``Home Improvement″ star joked during a ceremony marking the honor.

``It means so much to me, and from the bottom of my heart, I thank my friends and family and all the fans for being here today.″

Hundreds of people gathered to see the unveiling of Allen’s star, the 2,270th on the Walk of Fame. It is next to the El Capitan Theatre at the corner of Hollywood and Highland.

Patricia Richardson, who played Allen’s wife in the ABC comedy ``Home Improvement,″ and Jamie Lee Curtis, Allen’s spouse in the new movie ``Christmas with the Kranks,″ were on hand.

Allen will always ``be a huge part of my life,″ Richardson said, promising to ``do a little dance on his star each time I walk by.″

Curtis praised her co-star’s acting talent and then teased him over the camera his mother used to record the event.

``By the way, Tim, why don’t you get your mom a real camera rather than a disposable one,″ Curtis said.
