Julia Louis-Dreyfus Rolling Stone Magazine
Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus bares all on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, but it's not the Veep star in her birthday suit that's got our attention.

The editors of the magazine depicted Louis-Dreyfus with a giant tattoo of the United States Constitution on her back and added some unnecessary ink in the form of John Hancock's signature. Only thing is -- John Hancock didn't sign the Constitution, he signed the Declaration of Independence.

"Hancock signed Dec. of Independence NOT Constitution.Yet another Mike f**k-up.Dummy," the actress wrote on her Twitter page after cat...

Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Julia Louis-Dreyfus says swearing on screen is a "pleasure".

She told the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine: "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.' That was not part of the curriculum in high school, a...

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions: Who Are The Favorites To Win?

2013 Emmy Awards Predictions
?

It’s been a while since we’ve had such a wild card Emmy season. Last year, Homeland was all but a lock in each of its major categories, but after a shaky second season, some strong competition from other long-running shows, and a buzzworthy new Netflix series, things are really up in the air pretty much all over the place. Still, I’ll do my best to make some predictions in the big categories. Just remember: This year, pretty much anything goes.

Do you enjoy ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’? Do you own the entire DVD collection of ‘The West Wing’? Can you recite phrases like “the master of his domain” and “maybe a dingo at your baby”? Then ‘Veep’ may be the show for you.

It’s got a bonafide TV star in the seemingly ageless Julia Louis-Dreyfus, it’s got White House sophistication, and perhaps most important of all, it’s got lots of hilariously awkward moments.

In the first three episodes available for preview, ‘Veep’ is clearly on the path to finding its groove, a balance of chaotic, political mumbo-jumbo coated with profanity, cringe-induc...

Many celebrities attended Tuesday night's Vanity Fair cocktail party for the Tribeca Film Festival at the State Courthouse in Manhattan's Financial District. But two stars stuck out for their interesting fashion sense.
