Julia Louis-Dreyfus gave a no holds barred response when asked whether she’d like to see a female president in her lifetime.
“I fucking better,” said the comic and actress to Variety on Wednesday night.
The 58-year-old was celebrating the premiere of the seventh and final season of “Veep,” where she plays the determined albeit narcissistic politician Selina Meyer.
A video of Louis-Dreyfus’ answer naturally went viral, with many offering praise for the former “Seinfeld” star’s candor:
Of the upcoming season of “Veep,” Louis-Dreyfus also shared on the red carpet that she’s shed quite a few tears through the experience and that fans can expect the very best from her character.
“Selina Meyer is going to try to make a run for the presidency, yet again. She’s been veep. She’s been the president. She wants to be the president again. But it’s extreme this season. We definitely push the edge of the envelope, and it’s going to get pretty raucous,” said Louis-Dreyfus.
Long live Selina and Julia.
