Veep's Louis-Dreyfus speaks in the key of F-sharp

  • Print

AS Julia herself might say: WTF?

HBO's Veep actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 52, has a penchant for profanity, she says in the April issue of More magazine.

"It's part of who I am. I think if I was having tea with the queen, I would remember not to say, 'Pass me the (effin') sugar," but beyond that..."

The former Seinfeld star also acknowledges that her 25-year marriage to writer/director Brad Hall is important in Hollywood.

"In this town, with all the smoke and mirrors, it's easy to believe and be seduced by your own hype... very often an image is being sold. The struggle is maintaining a sense of yourself and your ideals while selling that image. To have a safe place at home is that much more important."

On facing an empty nest (The couple has two sons -- Henry, 20 and Charles, 15): "I'm looking forward to having a kind of freedom to go places and have adventures that I might not have been able to have when I was younger."

On aging in Hollywood: "It's a little strange seeing yourself age. You can't believe it's happening to you... I feel that I have a firmer sense of knowing what I'm doing. And I don't feel apologetic about it."

On her love of acting: "It's like scratching a deep itch for me. I love getting into the skin of a character. I love being funny. I love making people laugh. I love being on a set and the camaraderie. It's a very pleasant task."
