During her wide-ranging interview with Lipton, Louis-Dreyfus reveals what life was like as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live," her experiences on "Seinfeld" and her success after living with the "Seinfeld Curse," among other topics. Following are excerpts from the interview.

ON "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE:"

"I did a show called 'The Practical Theater's Golden 50th Anniversary Jubilee,' and we were a really big hit. The producers from 'SNL' came and saw the show. Like those weird stories you hear, they came backstage, and they said, 'we want you to be in the cast of 'SNL,'' and I said, 'yeah, sure.'"

On how "seinfeld" came to her:

"I got four scripts delivered to my house for this show called 'The Seinfeld Chronicles,' written by my friend Larry David. I read the scripts, and they were fantastic. They were completely different from anything that was on television right then�So I went in, and I met Jerry. I didn't know him at all, and we sat down, I remember he was eating a bowl of cereal, and we talked for a while."

ON ONE OF HER FAVORITE "SEINFELD" MOMENTS IN "THE NIP" EPISODE

"One of my most favorite things that we came up with was when George says to me, 'you didn't send me a Christmas card?' and I say, 'Oh, you want a Christmas card? You want a Christmas card?' and I grab his head, and I go, 'here is your Christmas card.' (Motions rubbing George's head in Elaine's breasts).

ON "SEINFELD" CO-STAR SEINFELD AND CREATOR LARRY DAVID:

"Jerry is very singularly focused on his comedy, and very calm in the center sometimes of some major storms. Larry was much more anxious and hysterical."

ON ELAINE'S FAMOUS DANCE MOVES:

"It was hard to do from a humiliation point of view."

ON FILMING THE LAST EPISODE OF "SEINFELD:"

"It was incredibly emotional in a way which is hilarious, because we were so smug about loving each other�In fact we would always get together in a huddle, before we did every show and, in that huddle Jerry began to cry, which caught us all off guard, I of course totally lost it."

ON "THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE:"

"I was trying to develop a show and I thought, well, what do I know? What comes to me sort of naturally�And I thought, oh yes, of course, motherhood. I've got to do a real show about being a mom."

Louis-Dreyfus was born in New York City to a Franco-American family best known for the Louis Dreyfus Group, an international investment and banking firm. She was raised in Bethesda, Maryland, and graduated from the Holton-Arms School. Her mother is Judith Bowles, and her father is G�rard Louis-Dreyfus (who changed his name to William in the 1940s). She attended Northwestern University as a theater major and was a member of the Delta Gamma sorority. Since 1987 she has been married to actor/writer Brad Hall, whom she met while they were students at Northwestern.

Louis-Dreyfus got her first big break as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live" from 1982 to 1985. Louis-Dreyfus made her feature movie debut in the Woody Allen film "Hannah and Her Sisters" in 1986. While on "SNL," she met writer Larry David, who would later co-create Seinfeld. Louis-Dreyfus appeared in quite a few sitcoms and films over the years but is best known for her nine-season role as "Elaine Benes" on NBC's Seinfeld from 1990 to 1998, in which she appeared in all but three episodes. After Seinfeld, Louis-Dreyfus began a new NBC sitcom, Watching Ellie, which was soon canceled. She had a notable recurring guest role as the deceitful prosecutor Maggie Lizer on Arrested Development. In 2006 she took on the lead role in the sitcom "The New Adventures Of Old Christine," for which she took home and Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series.
