Julia Louis Dreyfus Tells Breast Cancer to Fuck Off in Glamorous Post-Surgery Photo

Living television legend Julia Louis-Dreyfus uploaded a very good and inspiring photo to Instagram yesterday, which is something we could all use, uh, just about every waking moment of our lives these days. Let’s make this quick, because Julia Louis-Dreyfus wouldn’t want us spending more time on this than necessary.


“Hoorah!” she captioned her “first” post-op photo. “Great doctors, great results, feeling happy and ready to rock after surgery. Hey cancer, ‘Fuck you!’”

Louis-Dreyfus revealed her breast cancer diagnosis last fall and finished her chemotherapy treatment in January. Meanwhile, “Hey cancer, fuck you!” remains an evergreen sentiment.


Natalie Portman has responded to criticism that her role in the upcoming sci-fi film Annihilation was whitewashed. In a statement given to Yahoo! Entertainment, she said:

“I’m hearing that for the first time. That does sound problematic, but I’m hearing it here first. We need more representation of Asians on film, of Hispanics on film, of blacks on film, women—and particularly women of color—Native Americans...I mean, we just don’t have enough representation. And also these categories like ‘white’ and ‘nonwhite’—they’re imagined classifications but have real-life consequences. I hope that begins to change, because I think everyone is becoming more conscious of it, which hopefully will make change.”

Portman’s character’s race is not mentioned until the second book of the series (she’s described as having “strong Asian heritage on one side of the family”), which writer/director Alex Garland claims he hadn’t read at the time the film was being produced.

I’m glad for Dreyfus. I have breast cancer and its just hell on earth. I’m wondering why she still has hair, unless it’s a wig..mine fell out after my first chemo and two years later I am still not quite back to myself, (though my hair is!).

This might be a good time to mention that there are fourteen varieties of breast cancer..some are treated first with chemo to shrink the cancer prior to surgery, some have the surgery first and chemo and radiation afterwards.

A nasty little fact about breast cancer is that no matter what stage it is discovered, or what treatment we have, 33% of us will see our cancer return, often at Stage IV.

Anyway, I hope she makes it long term..I love her..and I hope I do too.
