Julia Louis-Dryfuss is naked on the cover of Rolling Stone and as funny as ever. Here she is talking about her role a Vice President on Veep:
“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. 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.” Incidentally, a Senate aide told Rolling Stone that Veep is “way more realistic than House of Cards. . . It works because it’s revealing truths.”
When the magazine asked about her father’s firm, the Louis Dreyfus corporation, which had holdings in energy, soybean-crushing plants and real estate – and recently donated $1 million to help eradicate voter suppression – she clarified that it’s her father’s business that’s valued in billions.
“I’ve been attached to that. It’s unbelievable, because whatever I do, people just assume it’s true. Welcome to the fuckin’ Internet.”
