That’s one way to pay homage to the U.S. of A!
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is baring it all on the cover of Rolling Stone, in which she appears completely nude – save for a tattoo of the United States Constitution on her back.
It’s a bold move for the 53-year-old VEEP star who, unlike a plethora of female actresses, is more famous for her comedic chops than her scantily-clad photoshoots.
“I think I'm about to get some more Twitter followers...” the brazen brunette wrote on Twitter on Tuesday, before sharing the cover with her fans.
“In my defense, ‘I was in a drunken stupor’ #crackexcuse,” she added, taking a clear dig at Toronto mayor Rob Ford.
The publication, which dubs Julia as “The First Lady of Comedy,” delves into the star's monumental career as well as the obstacles she overcame to get to where she is today.
“There is sexism – I’m not denying its existence,” she says of the entertainment industry, particularly with regards to comedic roles. “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.’”
Julia also clears up some rumours over her so-called “billionaire” status, despite her dad’s super successful company, the Louis Dreyfus Corporation.
“It’s unbelievable, because whatever I do, people just assume it’s true,” she says.
The new season of VEEP premieres on HBO on April 22.
