The star of VEEP, the multiple Emmy winning comedy on HBO, said in the tweet: “1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one.”
There isn’t more information on how serious or what kind/classification of the breast cancer she’d been diagnosed with, but for now, the tone of the tweet seemed more in the positive light.
“The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union”
“The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”
HBO said (in response of the news), “Our love and support go out to Julia and her family at this time. We have every confidence she will get through this with her usual tenacity and undaunted spirit, and look forward to her return to health and to HBO for the final season of ‘Veep.’”
Dreyfus came to stardom when she played the ever popular, Elaine Benes, on the show Seinfeld. She’s won 11 Emmy awards through her career.
