Julia Louis-Dreyfus Covers 'Redbook' March 2010
Here’s what the 49-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On what makes her 20-year marriage work: “You’ve got to find the right fellow. It is kind of basic, but very crucial. Brad [Hall, her husband] and I certainly have similar goals and sensibilities; we’re on the same page in terms of how we want to raise our children and what we like to do. We’re always trying new things together — having adventures is a great way to be with your partner….We travel a lot. A couple of years ago, we went river rafting in Chile. It was unbelievably exciting.”
On the one thing that gives her an instant laugh: “Um…it would have to be a fart. I’m not an intellectual.”
On balancing motherhood and career: “Yeah, the working-mom thing is definitely tricky. Guilt is a bitch. It’s so useless as an emotion, for me anyway. It clouds things, I’m not saying people shouldn’t feel guilty, but for me, it makes certain decision-making more difficult. And I have felt guilty. It’s one of the reasons I haven’t made a lot of movies. Network television is a full-time job, but it’s manageable.”
