Louis-Dreyfus' father, William, died two days before the Primetime Emmys on Sunday - and the 'Veep' star dedicated her win to his memory.
‘Veep’ star Julia Louis-Dreyfus tearfully dedicated her record-breaking Primetime Emmy win to the memory of her father, who had passed away just two days before.
The 55 year old actress mentioned her father, billionaire entrepreneur William Louis-Dreyfus, at the end of her emotional acceptance speech for what her seventh Primetime Emmy win for ‘Veep’ on Sunday night (September 18th). He had died on Friday at the age of 84.
“Lastly, I'd like to dedicate this to my father, William Louis-Dreyfus, who passed away on Friday. I’m so glad he liked 'Veep' because his opinion was the one that really mattered,” she said while trying to hold in her emotions.

In a week overshadowed by the death of Peaches Geldof, Mickey Rooney & Ultimate Warrior, we sought solace in action movies and rock music.
"#RIPPeaches": So went the hashtag that thousands of Twitter users used to pay tribute to the late Peaches Geldof, who was found dead in her Kent home on Monday with her baby son playing nearby. It's still not known how the 25 year-old mother-of-two suddenly passed away but her distraught family, including father Bob Geldof, have been given the body to plan a funeral whilst the toxicology test results come back. The Boomtown Rats star also lead the tributes to his "beautiful" daughter - read here. Peaches Geldof: 1989 - 2014.
Farewell Mickey Rooney: Screen legend and former child star Mickey Rooney passed away last Sunday at home in California after a long illness. Known for his unforgettable roles in Night at the Museum, Breakfast at Tiffany's and National Velvet, the 93 year-old was still making plans to appear in more movies and lived up to his positive "Don't retire - inspire" mantra. An ugly dispute over Rooney's burial and will has erupted since the death but will hopefully soon be calmed so that Hollywood can honour one of its most prolific figures. Read our obituary here. Mickey Rooney: 1920 - 2014.

How hard would it have been to have used the right constitution signature?
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is this month's Rolling Stone cover star and can currently be seen posing nude on the cover of the entertainment magazine. Well, not completely nude: the Veep actress' back in the shots is adorned with a tattoo print of U.S. Constitution signed by John Hancock across her back. The problem is Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. Doh!
Julia Louis-Dreyfus Has Posed Nude For The Cover And Feature Interview For Rolling Stone.
It's unclear who made this rather embarrassing error but it certainly didn't slip by eagle-eyed Rolling Stone readers. The goof circulated online until the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia joined in the mockery by tweeting the cover alongside Founding Fathers George Washington and Benjamin Franklin in Signers' Hall with the words, "Thanks for the shoutout but no Hancock here."

Dench, Gordon-Levitt, Winslet and Louis-Dreyfus are all in Britain to present their new films at the London Film Festival, and a raft of new trailers promise action, drama, fantasy mayhem and a starry WWII adventure...
The stars continue to be out in London in the second week of the 57th London Film Festival. Judi Dench and Steve Coogan were on-hand with their new film Philomena, Joseph Gordon-Levitt got the crowd screaming outside the cinema before the screening of his writing-directing debut Don John, and.

It opens in British cinemas this weekend. You can read our Enough Said review here.

Say 'that Tom Hanks one' to the person asking you, 'which film?'
Without making the tired, systematic glee-filled statement that ‘it’s Friday’ and ‘it’s time for fun’ - because most people have to walk their dogs and tidy the house on the weekend instead of drinking coffee and watching cooking programs – we’d like to alert you to the fact that it is, indeed, Friday.
Tom Hanks is Captain Phillips
But you can’t clean at night. That’s a fact. So what you’ll probably do is head to the pictures. You’ll sit in a chair, delve your paws into a box containing heated kernels of maize and stare blankly while a multitude of rich people, realising their dream jobs, entertain the millions who never will.

The critics agree, Enough Said is a poignant goodbye to the legendary actor
For a man who rarely spoke; kept his business private and was always described as a warm, caring man, starring in a poignant, romantic comedy called Enough Said was the perfect way to end an enigmatic, brilliant career.
James Gandolfini's sudden passing happened in Italy due to a heart attack
The critics have warmed to the romantic comedy, praising its fresh take on the tired genre. It sees two fifty-somethings attempting to date, while ex-wives, weight problems and self-confidence all put up staunch barriers.
Continue reading: 'Enough Said' - The Perfect Goodbye For James Gandolfini, Rom-Com Revolution For Louis-Dreyfus
With a strikingly against-type performance from the late Gandolfini, this film gives the romantic-comedy formula a welcome adult spin. Writer-director Holofcener keeps the characters authentic even as she indulges in some rather farcical plotting. And her astutely observational dialog lets the cast members create characters who are funny, flawed and thoroughly engaging.
At a party, massage therapist Eva (Louis-Dreyfus) meets two people who become important in her life. First is Marianne (Keener), whose snappy wit and honesty make her much more than just a new client. And then there's Albert (Gandolfini), an unlikely suitor who charms Eva with his dry wit and warm camaraderie as they share common emotions about daughters (Fairaway and Hewson) who are leaving home for university. But as Marianne moans about her miserable ex-husband, Eva realises that she's talking about Albert. And she knows that if she tells them that she's made this connection, she'll lose both a friend and a boyfriend.
Holofcener takes this simple idea and stretches it nearly to the breaking point. Fortunately, the film's real strength lies in the interaction between these people, and it's easy to identify with their hesitance as they endure a series of awkward moments that feel bracingly realistic. All of the dialog bristles with humour that feels improvised, and Louis-Dreyfus has always been an expert at combining comedy with both underlying strength and fragility (see Veep). Gandolfini seems like a strange match for her, but he plays the role so beautifully that we root for them as a couple.

With a tear, fans can wave goodbye to the late actor in this sweet and funny rom-com.
It's perhaps fitting that James Gandolfini eschewed his gangster typecast in favour of a warm, good-humoured teddy bear of a man in his last ever film, Enough Said: it marks the end of an era.
James Gandolfini's Last Film Has Premiered In New York.
Known for his role as mob boss Tony Soprano in the long-running HBO drama The Sopranos, Gandolfini died this June of a heart attack whilst holidaying with his family in Rome, aged 51 which came as a massive, heart-breaking shock for his fans. The just-released Enough Said marks the actor's last ever filming.

Eva pursues Albert and the couple's relationship quickly blossoms until Eva's latest friend, Marianne, gets a phone call from her supposedly miserable, horrible and selfish ex-husband. Albert.
Eva finds her relationship being tested and doubting her new partner after being sub-consciously influenced by Marianne. Eva must discover the truth about Albert in order find out first hand if he is as the man Marianne suggests he is.

Disney takes over Pixar's "World of Cars" with this spin-off that no-one really asked for (Cars 2 wasn't exactly a mega-hit). Indeed, this is an essentially disposable adventure, smiley and formulaic with a few minor thrills and a gentle sense of humour. Fortunately, the animation has some charm, as well as the occasional exhilarating moment. So kids are likely to enjoy it.
The protagonist is Dusty (voiced by Cook), a cropduster in rural America who dreams of racing against world champion Ripslinger (Smith) in the Wings Around the Globe race. So he gathers forklift Dottie (Hatcher) and fuel truck Chug (Garrett) as his pit crew, and convinces war veteran Skipper (Keach) to coach him. Despite being afraid of heights, he makes it into the final against Britain's Bulldog (Cleese), Mexico's Chupacabra (Alazraqui) and French-Canadian Rochelle (Louis-Deryfus). But as the race gets underway, Ripslinger and his henchmen continually sabotage the increasingly plucky Dusty.
The plot is so simple that this feels like one of Disney's straight-to-DVD sequels, complete with the deeply bland hero and ruthlessly evil villain. Fortunately, it's livened up by snappy dialog and a cast of offbeat characters that continually add deranged touches adult viewers will enjoy (such as a German forklift in lederhosen or a group of chanting Himalayan-monk tuktuks). There's not much else the strong voice cast can do with these characters. But the animators have a lot of fun with the settings as the race zooms to Europe, India, Nepal, China and Mexico, with whizzy race action that makes the 3D worthwhile for a change.

The late actor stars in this romantic comedy
James Gandolfini is on the charm offensive opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Enough Said – the last film before the Sopranos actor tragically died back in June from a heart attack. In this trailer, he exhibits the comic acting that made some of his best roles so darkly funny.
Gandolfini and Louis-Dreyfus star in Enough Said
But don’t worry, he’s not at all dark in Enough Said, just a middle-aged man so comfortable in his own skin, he’ll wear pyjamas on a ‘first date’. Take a look at the trailer below.

Dusty is a super swift cropduster whose horsepower would be a force to be reckoned with for many aircrafts were he to compete with them for speed. However, there's just one problem; Dusty is terrified of heights. Cropdusting allows him to skim the ground as he flies so he never has to face to fears. But his dreams of contending at the legendary aviation races means he is desperate to reach the clouds and, with the help of his best friend Skipper - a former Navy plane - he looks set to finally conquer his anxieties. Alongside his tank truck coach Chug, he prepares for the flight of his life as he tackles the likes of the Great White North star Rochelle, the legendary Bulldog and the egotistical Ripslinger for a place among the worldwide aviation champions.

The Veep star takes a trip to the White House
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, or should we say Madam Vice President, had lunch with the real Vice President Joe Biden at the White House. We don’t know why, but to be honest, we don’t really care why. It’s cool.
In a soundcloud upload, which you can listen to below, JLD talks about her lunch. "I came to have lunch with Vice President Joe Biden and I surprise him by sitting at his desk," said Louis-Dreyfus in audio posted on the White House site. "So he thought he'd just ask my advice on various briefs he had to deal with and I was happy to give him my advice, which he paid no attention to whatsoever." She goes on to praise the politician for not listening to her. Veep, the show in which the former Seinfeld star plays the vice president has just kicked off its second season. And we’re starting to see why its main character would be lunching at the White House a little more clearly now.
Continue reading: Vice President Veep Has Lunch With Vice President Joe Biden
Dusty may be a super speedy cropdusting aircraft but there's a reason why he spends his days skimming fields; he is terrified of flying. Nonetheless he is determined to conquer his phobia of heights and fulfil his dream of competing in the famous aviation races and with the help of his devoted friend Skipper, an introverted former Navy warplane, and a variety of supporters including his coach, tank truck Chug, he has all he needs to become a formidable racer like the Great White North star Rochelle, the legendary Bulldog and the highly arrogant but nevertheless impressive Ripslinger. Dusty knows that he must outstrip the cheating Ripslinger if he has any chance of becoming a worldwide champion, but with his sabotaging cohorts at his side, the challenge seems impossible.

Former Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus has had her Israeli TV commercial pulled, for fear that it would offend the country's overweight population
It’s a common social embarrassment that many of us have fallen victim to. Asking “Oh, when are you due?” only to be met with the response “I’m not pregnant.” Oh, the horror… Sadly for Julia Louis-Dreyfus, however, her comic take on this scenario, for a regional TV commercial has been banned from the airwaves in Israel, for fear of offending its overweight citizens.
In the commercial for local satellite TV station Yes, the former Seinfeld star can be seen patting a co-worker’s belly, thinking that she was with child, only to realise that she is not pregnant at all, merely overweight. The social embarrassment continues, and culminates in her remarking that the woman couldn’t possibly be pregnant “because obviously she hasn’t dated anyone in forever.” The Hollywood Reporter revealed the news that the ad had been pulled from broadcast and quoted Israel’s Yedid Association for Community Empowerment, who filed a complaint with Yes’ CEO Ron Ayalon, as well as the Cable & Satellite Broadcasting Council.
“There are a lot of weight-challenged individuals in Israel who are treated in an irreverent and hurtful manner,” came the complaint. “There is no justification to illustrate a stigma which suggests a larger woman is either pregnant or simply too fat for anyone to consider going out with.” The commercial has not only been pulled from air but also removed from the company’s YouTube channel. Yes released a statement of apology, stating “the playful commercial was based on Julia Louis-Dreyfus' past characters, and the message is how one may handle making a mistake. If anyone is being ridiculed throughout the spot it is Julia herself who is the one making these mistakes… It was not our intention to offend any population whatsoever and if it hurt anyone, we are deeply sorry."
