"American Beauty" star Kevin Spacey got his star on the Hollywood Blvd. Walk of Fame yesterday. The actor was accompanied by his mom, his high-school acting teacher and a couple of guys named Edward Norton and Jack Lemmon. Spacey called the latter his mentor. "I met Jack Lemmon when I was 14 years old," said Spacey, 40. "And he autographed a photo for me -- and he still uses that photo."
