Julia Louis-Dreyfus, known for her roles on Seinfeld, Veep, and The New Adventures of Old Christine, has just announced some major news about her health.
Louis-Dreyfus has been a pioneer in women's comedy since her iconic role as Elaine on Seinfeld.
The mom-of-two just won her sixth consecutive Emmy award for her role on Veep, where she plays the vice president of the United States. Her win broke the previous record for number of Emmys win by a performer in a single role.
Louis-Dreyfus has always been known for her healthy lifestyle and diet, crediting her family as her inspiration.
"I love vegetables. I should be a vegetarian, and I feel guilty saying I'm not," she said. "But I like meat and chicken. So I buy organic foods whenever they're available and shop at my local farmers market whenever I can."
"I have two growing boys," she said of her sons Henry, 16, and Charles, 11 with husband Brad Hall. "I'm concerned about what goes in their bodies."
But no amount of diet and exercise could keep her immune from what she's been diagnosed with.
