Veep star Ju­lia Louis-Drey­fus opens up about her brave bat­tle with breast can­cer. Of­fi­cial sketches of Princess Diana’s dresses go up for auc­tion.

She’s back at work on her Emmy-win­ning HBO sit­com Veep, and now Ju­lia LouisDrey­fus is talk­ing about life af­ter sur­viv­ing breast can­cer. “I do feel dif­fer­ent, but I can’t quite ar­tic­u­late how,” she says. “I’ve come out the other side of this, and I’m still not ex­actly sure how to de­fine the dif­fer­ence other than to say I’m grate­ful, of course, but it’s more than that. It’s big­ger.” Ju­lia, 57, un­der­went three rounds of chemo­ther­apy af­ter an­nounc­ing her di­ag­no­sis last year. She’s serv­ing as an am­bas­sador for Saks Fifth Av­enue’s Key to the Cure cam­paign, which sup­ports can­cer sur­vivors by sell­ing de­signer T-shirts. Most of all, she’s fo­cus­ing on the fu­ture. “I’m not some­one who likes look­ing back. I look for­ward. That’s how I op­er­ate. We’ll fin­ish an episode, and I am just ready for the next thing,” Ju­lia says. “I’m al­ways just mov­ing on, you know?”

“The best way to make a dif­fer­ence is to start with your own life.”
