Julia Louis-Dreyfus's Quotes

  • I'm not somebody who really believes in curses, but curse this baby! [on the so called "Seinfeld curse", in which little or no success has come since the show to the four main actors, upon accepting her Emmy Award for The New Adventures of Old Christine (2006)]
  • I will quote Norman Lear, who said that celebrity is something you can spend. And so I have taken my so-called celebrity and occasionally spent it down on causes or things that I'm passionate about. I'm not running for office. I'm not a scientist. But I'm a concerned citizen.
  • [on playing the leading character on Veep (2012)] Well, let's see. I personally am not the Vice-President of the United States. I want to make sure everyone understands that. But the aspect of presenting yourself in a certain way to the public and be liked - there is a parallel between public life and life as a person in show business, and that's sort of fun to draw on. I'm trying to watch a lot of in-between moments on C-SPAN.
  • Whenever I felt down, my mom would remind me that sense of humor gets you through just about anything.
  • [2013, on accepting an Emmy Award for Veep (2012)] This is so much good fortune it is almost too much to bear. I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to make people laugh. It's a joyful way to make a living.
