Ladies and gentlemen, it looks like we have an early contender for magazine cover of the year. Julia Louis-Dreyfus graces the new issue of Rolling Stone wearing nothing but the words of America's founding fathers scrawled across her back. "In my defense, 'I was in a drunken stupor,'" the actress tweeted about the cover, taking a page out of Rob Ford's book of excuses.
The cover comes in the midst of the JLD love affair that's sweeping the nation. Her razor-sharp political satire Veep — in which she plays U.S. Vice President Selina Meyer — has emerged as HBO's flagship comedy, while introducing the actress' impeccable comedic timing to a post-Seinfeld audience. But, despite her stalwart track record of showbiz success, Louis-Dreyfus is very much aware that her industry is one that can be unforgiving toward women.
"There is sexism — I'm not denying its existence," she told the magazine about life in Hollywood. "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.'" And, get out of her way it has. The newly christened First Lady of Comedy also discusses dining with her real-life counterpart Joe Biden, the Elaine Benes years, and why swearing is the best thing ever.
