Julia Louis Dreyfus wears nothing but the constitution

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, everyone’s favorite Jewish comedy heroine, has moved from iconic goofy sidekick/love interest Elaine Benes on “Seinfeld” to cutthroat politician Selina Meyer on “Veep,” currently in its third season on HBO.

To highlight her current role (and her other attributes), the 53-year-old actress appeared on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone – wearing nothing but a temporary tattoo of the Constitution.

Unfortunately, Rolling Stone’s photoshoppers might have been too busy ogling Louis-Dreyfus to check their historical facts: the large signature on Julia’s lower back is that of John Hancock, an 18th-century American patriot most famous for signing … the Declaration of Independence.

Louis-Dreyfus might want to (air)brush up on her history before her “Veep” character acts on any presidential ambitions.
