Julia Louis Dreyfus is up for another Emmy award tonight, nominated again for her role on the show Veep. Read on for the facts on Dreyfus below.
1. Her Acceptance Speech Last Year at the Emmys Was One of the Funniest in History

Julia is the daughter of billionaire Gérard C. Louis-Dreyfus, whose net worth is reported as $3.4 billion. He is a businessman who is the chairman of Louis Dreyfus Energy Services and the great grandson of Léopold Louis-Dreyfus, who founded the Louis Dreyfus Group. He goes by the name William since he first moved to the United States and he has two other children – Phoebe Eavis and Emma Louis-Dreyfus.
3. Dreyfus Is Worth $200 Million
Dreyfus doesn’t act because she needs the money. She does it because she loves it, which is quite refreshing. Her father may be a billionaire, but that doesn’t mean that Dreyfus can’t hold her own. With her industry success, Dreyfus’ net worth is reported as $200 million.
4. Brad Hall Is Her Husband
Dreyfus’ husband is in the entertainment industry as well. Brad Hall is an actor, writer, and director who’s know for his work as a Saturday Night Live news anchor on Saturday Night News. He was also the creator of the TV series The Single Guy and Watching Ellie.
5. We Will Never Forget Elaine
No matter how many projects Dreyfus takes on or how famous she becomes, we will never forget Dreyfus’ signature role as Elaine on Seinfeld. Let’s remember Elaine in some Seinfeld bloopers above.
