Dreyfus appears on the cover of spring/summer 2014 issue of New Beauty. She talks her fitness regime and growing old in public eye.

You’ve seen me age. I’ve been in showbiz for so long. From the first time people saw me on Saturday Night Live until now…it’s no secret that I’ve gotten older…I’ve gotten older in front of you and that is odd – it is still so strange to me that everyone has seen me age on a public stage. It’s totally changing and difficult.

Louis-Dreyfus wins the Emmy Award for Lead Actress in a Comedy at the 66th Annual Emmy Awards for portraying Selina Meyer in Veep.

The part of playing an unhappy vice president was a slam dunk as far as I was concerned. I love the idea of being powerful and powerless at the same time. It mirrors Hollywood in lots of ways and it’s lots of fun to play. It’s a phenomenal role.

There is sexism – I’m not denying its existence, 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.’

I’m so happy! Especially for the show getting a nomination too. I must admit though, I was dead asleep when they were announced. I don’t wake up for these things; I feel like that jinxes it. Today I’m going to celebrate by getting my teeth cleaned. Oh yes, I’m splurging!

Hollywood Walk of Fame

Walk of Fame

Louis-Dreyfus is presented with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her work in the category of Television. Her name is misspelled on the star, reading “Luis Dreyfus”. Friends Andy Ackerman, Larry David, and Jason Alexander attend the affair in support of Louis-Dreyfus.

The misspelling was so perfectly apt, a great metaphor for show business. Right when you think you’ve made it, you get knocked down. It’s an ideal metaphor for how this business works.

She is such a buffoon. People kind of dig her, and it makes them feel better about themselves. When you compare her to someone like Elaine, she is better-intentioned, which makes her idiocy tragic in a funny a way — which adds to the appeal.
