Julia Louis-Dreyfus Facts: 21 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Veep' Star

29 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Arguably the greatest female comedic actor ever (she has the Emmys to prove it), Julia Louis-Dreyfus hardly needs an introduction.

At only 21 years old, the actress was cast on "Saturday Night Live," a Cinderella-like start for the young New York native. While the show didn't catapult her to fame, it was a stepping-stone that culminated with her landing the role of Elaine Benes on "Seinfeld" (1989 - 1998). Proving there's no "'Seinfeld' curse," Louis-Dreyfus has had plenty of success since the acclaimed NBC sitcom ended, raking in several Emmys along the way. Just this summer, she took home her latest trophy for her work on HBO's "Veep."

From her eyebrow-raising family background to her actress half-sister, here are 21 things you probably don't know about Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

1. Julia Scarlett Elizabeth Louis-Dreyfus was born January 13, 1961 in New York, New York to Judith LeFever and Gérard Louis-Dreyfus.

2. Her parents divorced when Louis-Dreyfus was still just a baby. »

Rihanna Tweets Then Deletes "#FreePalestine.

15 July 2014 11:32 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

In the recent past, we have encountered quite a few celebrities who have tweeted things that are political in nature, and then deleted them due to the controversial nature of the content. The latest addition to this bunch is none other than Rihanna.

The 26-year-old popstar took to Twitter to say .#FreePalestine.", but not a few minutes had passed before RiRi decided to delete the tweet, realizing that it would spark up anger in her Middle-Eastern followers. Wanting to steer clear of debate, it seems. A few hours later, the singer sent out a tweet relatively more positive in nature, saying .Let's pray for peace and a swift end to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Is there any hope?...."

Some celebs who have infamously done the same are Kim Kardashian, Ashton Kutcher, January Jones and Patricia Heaton, among others.

You can add Rihanna to the growing list of celebrities who've tweeted about politics before swiftly deleting their comments due to touchy and controversial subject matter.

Neighbors Stomp on The Amazing Spider-Man with $51 Million Box Office Opening

11 May 2014 4:53 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man had no trouble taking on Electro and The Green Goblin. At the North American box office, he proved to be no match when it came to Seth Rogen and Zac Efron. Much to the surprise of everyone, Universal's R-rated comedy Neighbors moved into the number one spot at the North American box office this weekend, easily displacing The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It also made mincemeat out of fellow newcomers Legends of Oz: Dorothy Returns and Moms' Night Out, which both bombed.

Proof that you don't need to spend hundreds of millions to make a hit movie, the $18 million Neighbors arrived in 3,279 theaters following an extensive period of marketing and screenings to earn a great $51 million. The huge opening represents the fourth best opening ever for an R-rated comedy behind The Hangover Part II, Sex and the City and Ted. The film was directed by »

Box office: 'Neighbors' parties past 'Spider-Man 2' on Friday with $19.6 million

10 May 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Neighbors" partied hard at the box office on Friday, earning a huge $19.6 million and unseating "Amazing Spider-Man 2" from the top spot. The raunchy comedy, starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron, is on its way to a weekend debut just under $50 million. It's a great start for a film that reportedly cost just $18 million to produce. "Spider-Man," which features returning stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, swung to No. 2 with $10.1 million on Friday. It will likely earn around $36 million for the weekend, putting it within reach of a $150 million domestic total. The Sony sequel has so far earned a big $340 million overseas. It also stars Jamie Foxx, Paul Giamatti and Dane DeHaan. The Cameron Diaz comedy "The Other Woman" scored another $2.8 million for third place on Friday, bringing its domestic total to a strong $55.2 million. The Christian-themed drama "Heaven is For Real" earned $1.6 million. Its domestic total stands at an impressive $69.8 million. »

10 May 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Neighbors” has trumped “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” Stateside at the Friday box office and looks to rule Mother’s Day weekend as well.

Film Review: Chaotic Comedy ‘Moms’ Night Out’ Has Wholesome Content, Toxic Attitude

9 May 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Liberty is a concept expressed only in irony with “Moms’ Night Out,” a female-driven minivan comedy that instructs ultimately to listen to thy husband for it is Biblical, even if thy husband is a child himself. Like sad Mitt Romney and his chocolate milk, this PG-romp is a brief walk on the wild side from the rules that await at the end of the night.

Rating: 1.5/5.0

Unfortunately, while taking out the substance abuse of a Judd Apatow or Todd Phillips arc, this shiny film exorcises the substance that comes with a freer perspective of the world. “Moms’ Night Out” diverges into a film that cannot offer its viewers freedom from the the evil spirits that make a world so toxic, as the film itself is so narrow-minded.

The intentions of “Moms’ Night Out” start out innocent enough, with a zippy beginning that provides false promise for focused filmmaking. Its »

The Middle: Renewed for Sixth Season on ABC

9 May 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Aw Heck! ABC has renewed The Middle sitcom for a sixth season.

The Middlefollows the Heck family from a small town in Indiana as they try their best to get ahead. They're played by Patricia Heaton, Neil Flynn, Charlie McDermott, Eden Sher, and Atticus Shaffer.

Like most shows, The Middle is down year-to-year (by nearly 10% in the demo) but this series has remained a consistent performer for the network on Wednesdays at 8pm. That's particularly important since ABC continues to struggle to find new comedy hits. Of this year's crop, only The Goldbergs is a moderate success (it's also been renewed).

What do you think? Are you glad that The Middle is returning for a sixth season or do you think the show should have been cancelled? How long should it run?

'Moms' Night Out': Will Hollywood's Religious Movie Boom Extend to Comedy?

This story first appeared in the May 16 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Hollywood's religious revival of 2014 is being put to a key test: Can a faith-based film pack in big audiences if it's a comedy? The recent success of religion-themed dramas God's Not Dead, Heaven Is for Real and Son of God has awakened many traditional film executives to the power of the Christian audience. Now, with Moms' Night Out, which stars Patricia Heaton and is being released May 9 on about 1,000 domestic screens, that audience is being asked to support a lighter

Exclusive Video Interview With Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin And Sarah Drew On Moms’ Night Out

7 May 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Movies about mothers, whether they are single or married, have been coming out in droves lately. It was only a few months ago that we saw Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club and now, just in time for Mother’s Day, we have the comedy Moms’ Night Out.

The film follows Allyson (Sarah Drew), who has just endured another energy draining week of caring for her children while her husband Sean (Sean Astin) is out of town yet again. In desperate need of a break, Allyson invites her two best friends, Izzy (Andrea Logan White) and the pastor’s wife Sondra (Patricia Heaton), to spend an evening with her where they can relax and let their hair down. What begins as a fun night out soon turns into a chaotic evening which involves a boatload of misunderstandings that will have moms and dads chasing after each other as they »

Film Review: ‘Moms’ Night Out’

2 May 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s nothing wrong with “Moms’ Night Out” that couldn’t be fixed by a massive rewrite, preferably one that involves a lobotomy for the main character. Capturing the chaos that ensues when three overworked mothers decide to take a breather, this dismally unfunny comedy features barely a single instance of what most adults would recognize as human behavior — a curious failure for a movie aiming to resonate with all the frazzled mothers and fathers in the audience. Basically a shrill feature-length sitcom for the faith-based family-values crowd, if nowhere near as good as that sounds, Sony/TriStar’s Mother’s Day-timed release could get some mileage out of its high-profile Christian backers (namely co-star Patricia Heaton) but won’t exactly follow in the blessed B.O. footsteps of “Heaven Is for Real” and “God’s Not Dead.”

With her husband, Sean (Sean Astin), frequently away on business, Allyson (Sarah Drew), a very high-strung, »

“Mom’s Night Out” Premiere – Patricia Heaton, Trace Adkins, Sarah Drew and Sean Astin

30 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It was a family affair at “Mom’s Night Out” starring Patricia Heaton, Trace Adkins, Sarah Drew and Sean Astin. Cast and crew, along with kids and spouses, were all smiles on the red carpet Tuesday night the Tcl Chinese Theatre in Hollywood as they arrived for the premiere of the family friendly film that “celebrates the beautiful mess called parenting.” Much in the vein of “Mr. Mom” and “Daddy Daycare,” the premise of the film leaves the dads in charge while the moms have a night of fun and, of course, chaos ensues. The film, from the directing team of Jon and Andrew Erwin, has been generating good buzz. It opens on May 9 during the prime Mother’s Day weekend. Tri-Star is banking on a strong family turn-out to edge out the stiff competition of Universal’s “Neighbors” starring Seth Rogen and Zac Efron and Clarius Entertainment’s animated sequel, »
