Ellen says, ""It is amazing. I spent my entire career trying to conduct myself in a certain way making sure no one walks all over me only to get to a point where people are going to walk all over me."

"I mean, it's Hollywood Boulevard. I think of the history on Hollywood Boulevard. Every time I drive down it, I think, Wow... I should have taken Fountain. This is so trafficky," she cracks.

Ellen's star is located in front of the W Hotel in Hollywood, which is just down the street from famous intersection Hollywood & Vine. Ellen's talk show, "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," returns with new episode Monday, Sept. 10.
