Julia Louis-Dreyfus Net Worth – Julia Louis-Dreyfus most recently served up her acting talent as the Vice President you would hate to love on the HBO TV series ‘Veep’.
Unfortunately, news that the beloved actress was fighting breast cancer broke at the tail end of 2017.
After her announcement on Twitter, responses wishing her well poured in and showed the incredible amount of goodwill that the actress had been able to amass in her life.
Early Life, Family, and Education
She was born on January 13, 1961, as Julia Scarlett Elizabeth Louis-Dreyfus.
Although she came from an affluent family (Julia is the great-great-granddaughter of businessman Leopold Louis-Dreyfus, who founded the international Louis Dreyfus Group), she pursued the limelight of acting glory doggedly.
She studied drama at Northwestern University where she was a member of the Delta Gamma sorority but dropped out when she got a professional acting job.
Julia then began to work with the Practical Theater Company in Chicago, a company which her husband had helped to start.
Her performance at their 50th anniversary Jubilee resulted in a role on Saturday Night Live’s cast in 1982.
She was also part of the Second City comedy troupe. Her film career was launched with her appearance in ‘Hannah and Her Sisters’ and ‘Soul Man’.
In the course of her career, she has won eight Emmy awards for her television works, six of which were for lead actress in a comedy series, making her a record-setter.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is currently 56 years old. Now that she has completed chemotherapy after being diagnosed with breast cancer last September, she will hopefully still be around for a long time.
The actress is 1.6 m tall and her feet have been a subject of interest for one or two reasons ranging from the talks about how attractive/ugly it is to how it pleased the foot fetish guys when she slapped a man’s face with it in a Seinfeld scene.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus has a total wealth of $200 million.
With Seinfeld, she appeared in the entire 9 seasons of the show which ran from 1989-1998 and reportedly received $600,000 per episode in the show’s final season.
The show is currently syndicated all over the world and Julia continues to receive royalties.
‘The New Adventures of Old Christine’ series which debuted with an audience of 15 million also became hugely successful and ran for 5 seasons.
