Just weeks ago, “Veep” actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. On October 19th, the Emmy Award winner took to Instagram to provide an update on her health status after undergoing a second round of chemotherapy.
Rocking sunglasses, a black hoodie and a drawn-on moustache, Louis-Dreyfus delivered a hilarious message to her fans—pulling lyrical inspiration from Katy Perry’s hit song “Roar”, and also sending a shout out to co-stars Tony Hale and Timothy Simons for their constant encouragement and motivation.
Take a look at the hilarity that ensued:
HBO’s “Veep” will end after the upcoming season, but the 56-year-old actress will likely continue to make an impact, both on and off the small screen.
Last month, after receiving her diagnosis, Louis-Dreyfus expressed gratitude over the fact that as an active actress, she is fortunate enough to belong to a union that will offer “fantastic health care coverage” throughout the course of her cancer treatment. Unfortunately, other American’s aren’t always as lucky. For Louis-Dreyfus, it is vital that US citizens continue the ongoing fight “to make universal healthcare a reality.”
In the meantime, the actress/comedian is focused on making a full-recovery – ensuring us all that cancer has not at all affected her signature sense of humor. We wish her the best in the months to come!
