Julia Louis-Dreyfus says she has breast cancer

Posted: Updated:

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, star of "Veep" and "Seinfeld"  has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

The popular actress posted the news on her Twitter page, " 1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I'm the one. The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union. The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let's fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality," she tweeted.
    
Louis-Dreyfus' publicist said no further details about her condition would be provided at this time, adding that the actress "is incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and well wishes."
    
Louis-Dreyfus won her sixth Emmy Award on Sept. 17 for her portrayal of former POTUS Selina Meyer in HBO'S "Veep."
    
 She received the diagnosis the day after the Emmys aired, and it played no part in the previously announced decision to end the show after next season, HBO said.
    
HBO said on Sept. 6 that the comedy's producers decided to bring it to a close after season seven, with an air date yet to be announced.
