Emmy-Winning Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has a Meltdown Over a Coffee Order (All in Good Fun)

I wouldn’t typically run a prank video that we already know is a prank video, but this is not only seriously fun, but it really does display Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ outstanding acting range. If you only know her from Seinfeld, you really should check out Veep. It’s one of the smartest, funniest television shows around, and she deserves every Emmy she gets from that show (and it deserves a bigger audience), and she somehow caught the Clooney: The ability to look more beautiful the more she ages. The woman is goddamn stunning.

Anyway, Kimmel shows snippets from other actual YouTube videos in which people have epic meltdowns, and then presents Louis-Dreyfus’ fake meltdown in a coffee shop. If you didn’t know it was staged, you’d probably believe it. That’s how good Louis-Dreyfus is.

    Full disclosure: I read the first part of the headline prepared to defend Ms. Louis Drefyus as obviously her meltdown was completely justified.

    Then I saw that it was a joke. Still. I love her. She can do no wrong.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    Made up, not bad, but au naturel, somewhat less than 'goddamn stunning' -

  • Cree83

    Really? You're that bothered by someone calling this woman pretty that you have to take to the internet to scout out unflattering photos to try to prove the author wrong? This is the issue you're going to make a stand on?

  • Sirilicious

    A lot of people can look stunning with a professional stylist, hairdresser and makeupartist in tow. People shouldn't be downvoting you because of this. We should all realise that people can be non-stunning (because of age, flu, not wanting to get dolled up to go to the grocery even if you are a-list or whatever other reason). You don't have to be stunning to be rockin' it hard.

    Go Julia!

  • Aidan Harr

    She looks pretty fucking great even here, man.

  • Sirilicious

    I'd say she looks normal. I'd say that is great.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Remember last week, when someone asked if women really feel attacked and we replied, "Oh my goodness, yes!". I give you Exhibit A: Nynja Squirrel's comment.

  • Sirilicious

    What article was that? I feel like i missed something now.

  • WhoDeyKY

    she's 53 though. COME ON.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    Oh - I didn't say she looked bad, in fact, she looks pretty good - but a long way from the 'goddamn stunning' that the article suggested. That gets saved for Sophia Loren and Helen Mirren ; p

  • huh

    Bc either of those people "au naturel" don't look the damned same as that above?

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    I only knew her from Seinfeld so Veep really was a revelation. And she just looks so, so good.

  • Conor

    One of the best comic actresses around and she ages in goddamn reverse!

  • Kaye

    Funny... Yes. I love her and I think she is a fantastic actress. But honestly, acting out a meltdown is first semester drama class. It is so much easier than producing a subtle, nuanced performance.

    The video was cute but I don't see how it shows her skill and range as an actress.

  • Sirilicious

    I feel the same way about people gushing about the lovely fellow who plays King Joffrey. It's not hard to have people hate you on the street, if your character says and does reprehensible things.

    I think only one example comes to mind where i was deeply unconvinced in a semi-comparable situation, which was Eve in Angel's season 4. Whatever she did or said, i never took her seriously as the evil bitca she was supposed to be. Lilah however...

  • BWeaves

    Anyone can act a melt down. I agree.
