Julia Scarlett Elizabeth Louis-Dreyfus, was born on 13 January 1961, in New York City, USA, of part-French ancestry, and is a comedian, voice actress, actress, as well as a television producer. Julia  rose to prominence with the role of Elaine Benes in the TV sitcom entitled “Seinfeld”, which is considered to be one of the most successful sitcoms in the history of TV. Louis-Dreyfus’ portrayal of Benes earned her not only a large public exposure, but also gained her a Golden Globe Award, five SAG awards, as well as an Emmy Award.

So just how rich is Julia Louis-Dreyfus? According to authoritative sources, Julia’s net worth is estimated to be a over $220 million. A large part of Louis-Dreyfus’ wealth comes from her many appearances on television. In 2007, Louis-Dreyfus was earning $225,000 per episode in the TV sitcom series “The New Adventures of Old Christine”, while in 2009 her salary per episode grew to $275,000. With such successful career beginnings, Julia Louis-Dreyfus started receiving offers to appear in films and comedy series.

Julia’s childhood was interesting, as she spent time in several countries following her stepfather’s work with Project HOPE, in Sri Lanka, Colombia, and Tunisia, amongst others. She eventually matriculated from Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland in 1979, and then attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, where she joined the Delta Gamma sorority, while studying theatre, but dropped out to pursue a  career in the entertainment industry.[

Louis-Dreyfus’ career started with “The Second City”, an improvisational comedy group, whose former members include Amy Poehler, Shelley Long and Stephen Colbert. Dreyfus then joined the “Practical Theatre Company” with which she performed at various events. It was due to her appearances with this group that she was invited to become a part of the “Saturday Night Live” sketch comedy show, on which she worked for three years, during which time she met people such as Jim Belushi and Eddie Murphy. In 1985, Dreyfus left SNL and subsequently made an appearance in films including “Hannah and Her Sisters” directed by Woody Allen and “Soul Man”.

Dreyfus’ big breakthrough followed shortly after, as in 1990 she was cast for a role in “Seinfeld”, a sitcom starring Jerry Seinfeld and Michael Richards. Considered to be one of the best written series of all time, “Seinfeld” was indeed a huge national hit, and helped Dreyfus establish herself in the entertainment industry, as well as contributing to her net worth. The show ran for nine seasons, and after that the cast members went separate ways.

Dreyfus lent her voice to a character in a 1998 film “A Bug’s Life”, and was a recurring guest in the comedy series “Arrested Development”. Dreyfus was in a limelight again in 2005 when she was cast to appear in the sitcom called “The New Adventures of Old Christine”. The show ran for five seasons, and during its time left a huge impact on audiences, as well as being nominated nine times for Primetime Emmy Awards, while Louis-Dreyfus secured a win for an Emmy Award. At the peak of her career, Julia Louis-Dreyfus was honored with the Legacy of Laughter award in 2009, and a year later was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In her personal life, Julia has been married to Brad Hall since 1987, and they have two sons. Politically she has supported Democratic presidential candidates, and is a strong activist on environmental issues.

#Fact
1 While many critics consider The Simpsons (1989) and Seinfeld (1989) to be the two most revolutionary comedies of the 1990's, with several even lauding them as the two funniest shows ever, Louis-Dreyfus is the only regular cast member of either series to make an appearance on the other. However, Yeardley Smith, voice of Lisa Simpson, unsuccessfully auditioned for the titular role in the Seinfeld episode "The Secretary" and actors Marisa Tomei, Lawrence Tierney, Kathy Griffin, Bryan Cranston, Dana Gould, Bette Midler and Jon Lovitz have made guest appearances on both series.
2 Received her 14th Emmy Award nomination in 2014 making her the most-nominated comedic actress in the lead and supporting categories in Emmy Award history.
3 Her father fled from France to the United States during World War II.
4 Great grandfather Léopold Louis-Dreyfus founded the Louis Dreyfus Group. Her father Gérard Louis-Dreyfus is the chairman of Louis Dreyfus Energy Services. Her father's net worth was estimated at $3.4 billion by Forbes magazine in 2006. Her cousin, the late Robert Louis-Dreyfus meanwhile was the CEO and owner of Adidas from 1993 to 2001.
5 In contrast to her real-life solid marriage of 27 years, Julia's career has been entirely comprised of playing usually unhappy single or divorced women.
6 Appeared on the cover of Home & Country magazine which featured an article on homes in Montecito, California where she has a second home. [October 2005]
7 Attached to HBO pilot, "VEEP." [January 2011]
8 Appeared in commercials for "Healthy Choice". [2009]
9 Filming HBO pilot "VEEP" In Washington DC area [February 2011]
10 Appeared in a reading of Arthur Miller's newest play (and first comedy), "Resurrection Blues", in New York. [August 2004]
11 Her father was born in France and her mother was born in the United States. Julia's paternal grandfather was from a French Jewish family. Julia's paternal grandmother, who was also American-born, had English, German and Mexican ancestry. Julia's mother's ancestry includes English, French, German, Scottish and Scots-Irish (Northern Irish).
12 As of April 2013, she is the only actress to receive Emmy Awards for her work in three different comedy series (Seinfeld (1989), The New Adventures of Old Christine (2006), Veep (2012)).
13 Nominated in the Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series, Veep (2012), at The Women's Image Network (WIN) Awards 2012.
14 Gave birth to her second child at age 36, a son Charles Hall on May 30, 1997. Child's father is her husband, Brad Hall.
15 Gave birth to her first child at age 31, a son Henry Hall on July 1, 1992. Child's father is her husband, Brad Hall.
16 During a visit to "Ellen", Bradley Whitford revealed that his (then) wife, Jane Kaczmarek received a big bouquet of flowers from Julia-Louis Dreyfus the day after the Emmy Awards. Both Jane and Julia were nominated in the category Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Jane had been highly tipped to win for Malcolm in the Middle (2000) but the Emmy was given to Julia-Louis Dreyfus for The New Adventures of Old Christine (2006). With the bouquet was a card with the words "You Got Screwed".
17 Received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6250 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on May 4, 2010.
18 Is the first female guest to appear on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien (2009), which relocated to Los Angeles, California (June 3, 2009 / episode 3).
19 She and her future husband, Brad Hall (a year before they were married in 1987) made their feature film debut together as a couple in the fantasy horror movie Troll (1986).
20 Chosen by Forbes magazine as one of the 10 Hottest Billionaire Heiresses. [2006]
21 Is the first, and thus far only, one of the four primary cast members of Seinfeld (1989) to have received a Razzie Award nomination. She was nominated for Worst Supporting Actress in 1998 for her performance in the film Fathers' Day (1997). However, she ultimately lost the award to Alicia Silverstone in Batman & Robin (1997).
22 Her second home in Montecito, California, is solar-powered, radiant-heated, and built from recycled materials.
23 Was originally slated to play Alison Stern in Private Parts (1997), Howard Stern's biopic. She dropped out to spend more time with her children.
24 It was announced that her television series, Watching Ellie (2002) has been canceled by NBC. Lasting one year, it more than doubled the staying power of fellow Seinfeld (1989) alumni Jason Alexander and Michael Richards' series, but failed to draw a wide enough audience to warrant renewal. [June 2003]
25 Is included in Richard Roeper's list of actresses who have never done nude scenes in his latest book, "Ten Sure Signs a Movie Character is Doomed, and Other Surprising Movie Lists". When asked about this by Conan O'Brien, Dreyfus stated that she had never been asked to do one.
26 Half-sister, Lauren Bowles, acts with her on the situation comedy Watching Ellie (2002).
27 Her character on Seinfeld (1989), Elaine Benes, did not appear in the original pilot. She has never watched that episode - out of superstition.
28 Fought NBC censors to allow a scene where a man runs around his house completely naked in front of Ellie (Julia's character on Watching Ellie (2002)). She won.
29 Her grandfather, Pierre Louis-Dreyfus, was a member of the French Resistance during World War II, and flew 88 missions for Charles de Gaulle's Free French Air Force.
30 Both her parents remarried after their divorce, and she has two half-sisters from her mother's second marriage and two half-sisters from her father's second marriage. She considers both her stepparents to be as important in her life as her biological parents.
31 Performed improv with Chicago's Second City and the Practical Theatre Company, started by her husband, Brad Hall.
32 Attended and graduated from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois (1982). She was a member of the Delta Gamma sorority.
33 Her television series, Watching Ellie (2002), was created for her by husband Brad Hall. They originally wanted the series to air commercial free, but that idea was rejected by NBC.
34 Daughter of Gerard Louis-Dreyfus, a French billionaire businessman.
35 Both she and her husband, Brad Hall, appeared as part of NBC's Saturday Night Live (1975) cast in early 1980s. They are the only husband/wife team to do so.
36 Chosen by People Magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World. [1998]
37 Met her husband, Brad Hall, while both were attending Northwestern University (Evanston, Illinois).

#Quote
1 I'm open to any material that's good. Be it a short film, be it a feature length film. I mean, good ideas aren't low-hanging fruit ready to be picked. They're sometimes very hard to come by. So I'm interested in good ideas no matter what form they take.
2 [2014, on continuing her pivotal role on Veep (2012)] I think there's something to be said for working as a group, collaborating over a period of time. Needless to say, we know each other and we have seen each other's rhythms, managed to pull together a really fine group of actors, writers, directors. It's a good dance we've got going along right now.
3 [on the current television production scene] It has certainly changed. The business model of television, meaning the currency of ratings, is not what it used to be back in the early days of Seinfeld (1989). It's sort of the wild, wild west, because now there are so many platforms and areas for good television, which is really exciting. I love working in pay cable because, from a creative point-of-view, the latitude is so phenomenal.
4 [on undertaking the role of Eva in Enough Said (2013)] I was such a massive Nicole Holofcener fan that it was an irresistible cocktail. She has such a distinctive voice, don't you think?
5 [on Nicole Holofcenter] She runs a set that that's very, very, very relaxed. Her dog comes to the set, her kids come to the set, my kids come to the set, my parents come to the set, my best friend from the third grade, her best friend. There is a comfort she promotes on set that helps everybody relaxed into behaving I would say as realistically as possible.
6 I love the film festival circuit. I think there's something about it, I don't know. Maybe I'm being Pollyanna-ish about this, but it's an opportunity to be very supportive of filmmakers, and there's just this goodwill which I love.
7 [2013, on accepting an Emmy Award for Veep (2012)] This is so much good fortune it is almost too much to bear. I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to make people laugh. It's a joyful way to make a living.
8 Whenever I felt down, my mom would remind me that sense of humor gets you through just about anything.
9 [on playing the leading character on Veep (2012)] Well, let's see. I personally am not the Vice-President of the United States. I want to make sure everyone understands that. But the aspect of presenting yourself in a certain way to the public and be liked - there is a parallel between public life and life as a person in show business, and that's sort of fun to draw on. I'm trying to watch a lot of in-between moments on C-SPAN.
10 I will quote Norman Lear, who said that celebrity is something you can spend. And so I have taken my so-called celebrity and occasionally spent it down on causes or things that I'm passionate about. I'm not running for office. I'm not a scientist. But I'm a concerned citizen.
11 I'm not somebody who really believes in curses, but curse this baby! [on the so called "Seinfeld curse", in which little or no success has come since the show to the four main actors, upon accepting her Emmy Award for The New Adventures of Old Christine (2006)]
