Julia Louis-Dreyfus is thought of by many as one of the comedians of her era. She started out on Saturday Night Live, and from there went on to bigger and bigger things. But her personal life sometimes wasn’t always as funny as her performances. And neither was her time on SNL, as a recent interview attests to.

Louis-Dreyfus was born into a wealthy family. In fact, her father, Gérard Louis-Dreyfus, was a billionaire. For generations, the Louis-Dreyfuses controlled the French Louis Dreyfus Group, a shipping conglomerate which ultimately made them very rich. However, Louis-Dreyfus’ parents divorced when she was very young. From there, life wasn’t always easy.
