Julia Louis Dreyfus, crowned “The First Lady of Comedy” by Rolling Stone, graces their newest cover in the nude.

Julia Louis Dreyfus Covers 'Rolling Stone'

Dreyfus, 53, appears on the latest cover of Rolling Stone completely in the buff – save for the United States Constitution that’s inked on to her bare back, which is inaccurately signed by John Hancock. Inside, the magazine promises a look into her “journey from Seinfeld to Veep.”

Last night, Dreyfus took to Twitter to unveil the sexy cover, writing, “In my defense, “I was in a drunken stupor” #crackexcuse.”

Prior to showing off her Rolling Stone cover, Dreyfus presumed that her social media standing was about to improve.

It’s been nearly 30 years since Dreyfus first had her major break in the industry, getting a spot on Saturday Night Live in 1985. Just four years later, she was cast in the ensemble comedy Seinfeld. After a number of stints on a variety of TV shows, The New Adventures of Old Christine took off and became a hit in 2006. Now, she has another comedic hit with HBO’s Veep, in which she plays Vice President Selina Meyer.

Acknowledging her success, Dreyfus says, “There is sexism [in the industry] — I'm not denying its existence. But I'm saying that I will deny its effort against me. I just pay it no never mind and say, 'Get out of my way.'"

There’s no doubt the actress has been a standout female in comedy, making her own rules to play by. "Once, when we were trying to come up with the particular perfect, horrible, swear-y thing to say in Veep,” she told Rolling Stone. “I said, 'You do realize that if we were 12, we would get in big trouble for this conversation,'"

Veep premiered its third season April 6. It airs Sundays on HBO at 10:30 p.m. EST.
