Well hello, Madame Vice President! Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus bares all for the newest issue of Rolling Stone, wearing nothing but a faux tattoo of the United States Constitution. Julia revealed the cover image just two days after the third season of her HBO comedy premiered, hilariously tweeting a Rob Ford reference: “In my defense, ‘I was in a drunken stupor.’ #crackexcuse.” Check out the cover below!
At 53, the actress looks darn near flawless, and manages to pull off age-appropriate nudity. The cover features just a hint of her derriere peeking out, and the rest of the important parts tastefully covered. My only gripe is that John Hancock didn’t sign the U.S. Constitution as Julia’s bum seems to indicate. The Declaration, yes, but not the Constitution, — but I’ll overlook this American History faux pas on account of how much I adore JLD.
In Rolling Stone’s first look of the article, Julia speaks out on sexism, saying, ”There is sexism – I’m not denying its existence. 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.’” Julia, love, I admire your feminist insight, and could benefit from your wisdom. Have your minions call my minions, and we’ll set something up.
Of course there’s a good lesson to be learned from all this, dolls: keep applying your Kiehl’s sunscreen daily, and take this as a beacon of hope that we can one day age gracefully as well (provided this isn’t the work of the controversial magazine airbrushing profession).
As shocking as it may seem, I’m not mad at this public display of nudity. It’s hardly a Playboy spread, and it is as tastefully done as a Rolling Stone cover with politics-inspired body art could be. Where do you stand?
