Julia Louis-Dreyfus poses naked on the new cover of Rolling Stone — with the part of the Constitution painted onto her back. The magazine declares the “Seinfeld” and “Veep” star “The First Lady of Comedy.”

Comedy is often considered a “boys’ club,” and Louis-Dreyfus tells the magazine, “There is sexism – I’m not denying its existence.” “But I’m saying that I will deny its effort against me,” she continues, “I just pay it no nevermind and say, ‘Get out of my way.'”

Louis-Dreyfus’ politically-oriented HBO comedy has scored her an in with actual vice presidents Al Gore (“who did win, by the way,” she says) and Joe Biden, with whom she recently dined. “He loves to tell stories, and I’m a good listener,” recalls the actress. “I loved that dinner. There was no cynicism, just a very earnest jubilation about being there.”

The TV star also clears up a big rumor — she is NOT a billionaire, despite her dad’s mega-successful company, the Louis Dreyfus Corporation. “It’s unbelievable, because whatever I do, people just assume it’s true. Welcome to the f*ckin’ Internet,” she tells the mag. The full interview hits newsstands on Friday. Check out a larger version of the cover below.
