‘I WON’T LET CAN­CER BEAT ME’

The Seinfeld star stays strong as she faces her big­gest bat­tle yet

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Celebrity News -

With her hair wrapped up in a red head­scarf and dressed in a ca­sual en­sem­ble, Seinfeld star Ju­lia Louis-dreyfus looked de­ter­mined to carry on with ev­ery­day life in LA last week, now her last round of ag­gres­sive che­mother­apy is be­hind her.

The ac­tress, 57, an­nounced she was di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer last Septem­ber – just one day af­ter win­ning an Emmy for her role in Veep.

And af­ter fin­ish­ing her fi­nal round of chemo last month, sources tell Wo­man’s Day Ju­lia is “feel­ing stronger and more pos­i­tive” – and it’s all thanks to her hus­band of 30 years, Brad Hall, and their two sons, Henry, 25, and Char­lie, 20.

“Her boys re­as­sure her ev­ery day she’s more beau­ti­ful than ever. They’re in awe of how strong she’s been,” says our in­sider.

Last week, Ju­lia shared an em­pow­er­ing so­cial me­dia post. “Hoorah! Great doc­tors, great re­sults, feel­ing happy and ready to rock af­ter surgery. Hey can­cer, ‘f*** you!’” she cap­tioned her first post-op photo.

In­deed, Ju­lia has been de­fi­ant about beat­ing the ill­ness since day one, in­sist­ing, “The good news is that I have the most glo­ri­ous group of sup­port­ive and car­ing fam­ily and friends.”

And she can add sup­port­ive work col­leagues to the list, too. The pro­duc­tion of Veep went on hia­tus so Ju­lia could un­dergo treat­ment, but she’s plan­ning to re­turn in Au­gust to film the sev­enth and fi­nal sea­son.

“She’s done some table reads, she’s do­ing well... She’s in re­cu­per­a­tion,” says her co-star Matt Walsh “She’s very well loved. She’s a tremen­dous per­son.”

There could also be an­other long over­due work re­union com­ing up for Ju­lia, with Jerry Seinfeld hint­ing last week on Ellen that “it’s pos­si­ble” the gang will get to­gether for a Seinfeld re­boot – 20 years on.

“The thought of re­unit­ing with the cast has spurred Ju­lia on to get bet­ter as quickly as pos­si­ble,” says a source. “She’s not out of the woods, but she be­lieves she will be. She says it’s all about the power of pos­i­tive think­ing.”

The ac­tress cel­e­brat­ing her fifth Emmy win with her fam­ily in 2014.

With her sup­port­ive hus­band Brad and sons Henry and Char­lie in 2015.
