Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus has landed the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s latest issue, wearing nothing but a smile and the United States constitution inked on her back.
Shortly before the cover was released online on Wednesday, Dreyfus wrote on Twitter, “I think I’m about to get some more Twitter followers…”
The 53-year-old actress followed it up with, “In my defense, “I was in a drunken stupor” #crackexcuse,” along with a link to the cover photo.
In the interview, the lauded television actress talked about her leap from the quick-tempered Elaine Benes in “Seinfeld” to the vicious U.S. vice President Selina Meyer in HBO’s political satire “Veep.”
The former Saturday Night Live mainstay said that there is sexism in her line of work. “I’m not denying its existence,” she said. “But I’m saying that I will deny its effort against me. I just pay it no nevermind and say, ‘Get out of my way.’”
Louis-Dreyfus also claimed that she got her part on “Veep” because the show’s creators loved her sense of humor and shared a back story. “Once, when we were trying to come up with the particular perfect, horrible, swear-y thing to say in ‘Veep,’ I said, ‘You do realize that if we were 12, we would get in big trouble for this conversation,’” she said. “That was not part of the curriculum in high school, and the fact that it is now a part of the curriculum of my life is a pleasure, which is the understatement of the universe.”
Meanwhile, Louis-Dreyfus slams Internet claims that she is a billionaire, connecting her with her father’s multi-faceted corporation, the Louis Dreyfus corporation. She said, “I’ve been attached to that,” she said. “It’s unbelievable, because whatever I do, people just assume it’s true. Welcome to the f****n’ Internet.”
