fanpop.com

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has succeeded in a field traditionally dominated by men. The queen television comedy will be back in April 2016 with a new season of the hit series Veep. Here are 15 things you probably didn’t know about the talented, hilarious actress. Stay tuned for part two, coming soon!

Number Fifteen: She Was Rich Before She Started Acting

Dreyfus was born to a very wealthy family. Her great-great-grandfather founded the Louis Dreyfus Group, which dominates the agriculture trade worldwide. Dreyfus insists that it’s the company that makes millions, not her family, but they definitely never struggled financially. The company makes approximately $120 billion a year.

Number Fourteen: Clinton Loves Her in ‘Veep’

Veep has been named the most realistic portray of American politics by D.C. congressmen! Ex-President Bill Clinton is a fan of the show and, particularly, of Julia’s character, Selina Meyer. Dreyfus has quoted him saying: “You know what’s great about your part [as VP] is that there are no term limits.”

Number Thirteen: Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Female Utopia

Dreyfus would love the politics landscape to look a little more like Veep. She said that “if women ran the world, it would be a better place.”

Number Twelve: She’s Friends with Joe Biden

Louis-Dreyfus and Vice President Biden met a few years ago and they just hit it off! In 2014, they filmed a skit together featuring Selina and Biden in the White House for Saturday Night Live.

Number Eleven: She Enraged Israeli Feminists

A YES DBS ad featuring Julia Louis-Dreyfus was deemed offensive and got pulled from Israeli television. In the ad, Dreyfus approaches a co-worker and wrongfully congratulates her on being pregnant. The ad was regarded as insulting and shameful by feminist organizations. Nonetheless, it was the most successful commercial in the country in 2013.

Number Ten: She’s Concerned About L.A.’s Environmental Issues

Julia is an environmentalist. She worries about global warming and other environmental issues—particularly, California’s water and air quality. She has raised millions to clean up the water supply in Los Angeles and has also donated money to Heal the Bay. Her California home is, in fact, solar-powered and built on recycled materials.

Number Nine: She’s Lived All Over the World

Her step-father’s job as a member of an NGO (Project Hope) had her and her family moving from country to country for years. She has lived in Sri Lanka, Colombia, Tunisia and several U.S. states.

Number Eight: Her Cousin Owned a Football Club

Robert Louis-Dreyfus, Julia’s French cousin, was a very successful businessman in the sports field. He used to be the CEO of Adidas and owned the Olympique de Marseille, a major French football club. He passed away from leukemia in 2009. Stay tuned for part two, coming soon!
