Julia Louis-Dreyfus gets naked for Rolling Stone

Feel free to blame Julia Louis-Dreyfus' new Rolling Stone cover on the alcohol -- the 53-year-old has already. "In my defense, 'I was in a drunken stupor,'" the actress joked on Twitter of her rather revealing cover photo, in which she poses nude with an imprint of the U.S. Constitution stamped on her back.

Feel free to blame Julia Louis-Dreyfus' new Rolling Stone cover on the alcohol -- the 53-year-old has already.

"In my defense, 'I was in a drunken stupor,'" the actress joked on Twitter of her rather revealing cover photo, in which she poses nude with an imprint of the U.S. Constitution stamped on her back.

Obviously Louis-Dreyfus did the eye-catching pose for a reason: she's in the middle of promoting the newest round of "Veep," which returned for its third season on April 6.

The HBO comedy just won Louis-Dreyfus another Emmy last year, but it's not the accolades that Louis-Dreyfus enjoys most about the show. It's the cursing.

"Once, when we were trying to come up with the particular perfect, horrible, swear-y thing to say in 'Veep,' I said, 'You do realize that if we were 12, we would get in big trouble for this conversation,'" she tells Rolling Stone. "That was not part of the curriculum in high school, and the fact that it is now a part of the curriculum of my life is a pleasure, which is the understatement of the universe."

It seems Louis-Dreyfus' optimistic outlook is part of the secret to her success, as "Seinfeld" creator and former co-star Larry David describes her as "bright, charming – striking, actually – and she had a great disposition," making her hiring a no-brainer.

And when it comes to the topic of sexism in the industry, Louis-Dreyfus is similarly unshakeable.

"There is sexism – I'm not denying its existence," she tells RS. "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.'"
