The Best Career Advice Julia Louis-Dreyfus Ever Received

The Emmy winner, who returns to HBO this month for a third season as the bumbling Veep, reveals her first job, best financial advice, and knack for nailing a questionnaire

Share


FIRST REAL JOB: 
I was an ice cream scooper at Swensen's Ice Cream Parlor in Washington, D.C. Great workout for the arms. I didn't know how to work the cash register and subsequently quit/got fired. My boss was an 18-year-old dick.

BEST CAREER ADVICE:  Have fun at all costs (given to me by my high school physics teacher, Mr. Coyne).

BEST FINANCIAL ADVICE: I'm still waiting for it.

EARLY IN MY CAREER, I WISH SOMEONE WOULD HAVE TOLD ME: "You're right."

I STILL GET NERVOUS WHEN: A wild animal is about to attack me, or if I have to make a toast at a party.

MY MORNING ROUTINE: Up at 5:30. Run 12 to 17 miles. Swim 5 to 7 miles. Three or 4 jumping jacks.

STANDARD BREAKFAST: Ten eggs over medium, a loaf of bread, and half a grapefruit.

FITNESS REGIMEN: I don't give it much thought.

IF I WERE VEEP, MY SECRET SERVICE CODE NAME WOULD BE: You Darling Girl.

MY ASSISTANT WOULD DESCRIBE ME AS: A horrible, horrible bitch. No offense to myself.

ON MY DAY OFF, I: Huh? What does this mean?

AFTERNOON PICK-ME-UP: A nap, and the other half of the grapefruit.

READING LIST: This questionnaire.

MY GREATEST WEAKNESS: Questionnaires.

ON MY DESK, I KEEP A PHOTO OF: Myself.

UNDER MY DESK, I STORE: All the other photos of myself.

I WISH I HAD MORE TIME TO: Take photos of myself.
