The selfless reason Julia Louis-Dreyfus shared her battle with breast cancer

The selfless reason Julia Louis-Dreyfus shared her battle with breast cancer

"I know we have to get this cancer sh-t out of the way so bring on the questions", she said humorously before confirming to Kimmel that her cancer was gone.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus joins the cast and showrunner of the television series Veep for a discussion at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Film Interactive Festival 2017 in Austin, Texas, U.S., March 13, 2017.

When the Post asked the actor if "there was ever any thought of just stepping away [from the show]", or "just not coming back to Veep" at all, Louis-Dreyfus had two words: "Oh, no".

Former Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus is opening up about her breast cancer battle.

"A lot of people worked for me and I knew I couldn't really keep it private because I had to tell everybody what was going on, and then I just sort of embraced that and I got a lot of positive feedback", the 57-year-old commented.

Studies link higher crash rates with states that legalized marijuana
The second study looked at the number of police-reported accidents before and after the legalization of recreational use of weed. Witnesses told authorities the driver had been driving erratically for more than 15 minutes before the crash.


On Thursday night, she also discussed her treatment with Kimmel and how health care should be for everyone. Then she added, "I love making people laugh, and I love making people cry even, and I find the pursuit of a truthful performance to be deeply satisfying to my core". I'm back to work at "Veep" which is wonderful.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Louis-Dreyfus proactively addressed her cancer diagnosis.

As she's done in the past, Louis-Dreyfus tied her fight against cancer with the fight for health insurance for all - which dovetailed into Kimmel's very public battle over health care when his newborn son needed heart surgery. "I believed that before; now I really believe it".

After having a procedure in February, she posted a photo with the message: "Hoorah!"

The seventh and final season of Veep is due to premiere in spring 2019.
