Top 10 Celebrities With Breast Cancer

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Actress, Earned Another Emmy Nomination After Cancer Treatment

 

On September 28, 2017, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, of Seinfeld and Veep fame used Twitter to announce that she had breast cancer. “One in 8 women get breast cancer,” the 56-year-old Emmy Award–winning actress wrote. “Today, I’m the one.”

Louis-Dreyfus struck a positive note with her message — and used the opportunity to make a plug for more extensive healthcare coverage for all. “The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union,” she wrote. “The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal healthcare a reality.”

Speaking to Vanity Fair in August 2019, Louis-Dreyfus revealed she had undergone six rounds of chemotherapy and a double mastectomy, after which she returned to film the final season of Veep, which earned her a seventh Emmy nomination, for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
