Julia Louis-Dreyfus is naked on the cover of this month's Rolling Stone, save for the words of the U.S. Constitution emblazoned on her back.

The stunt is a nod to Louis-Dreyfus' starring role on the HBO series "Veep," a political satire in which she plays Selina Meyer, the vice president of the United States.

In her tweet announcing the new issue, Louis-Dreyfus, 53, makes a comment just as cheeky as the photo.

In the interview with Rolling Stone, Louis-Dreyfus discusses everything from her rise to fame on "Seinfeld" to her starring roles on "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and "Veep." She addresses her recent work on the big screen, appearing opposite James Gandolfini in his final film, "Enough Said," as well.

She also details her meetings with real-life vice presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden. She makes sure her audience remembers that Gore "did win, by the way," and said of Biden and the dinner they shared, "He loves to tell stories, and I'm a good listener. I loved that dinner. There was no cynicism, just a very earnest jubilation about being there."

Louis-Dreyfus also comments on the Internet rumor that she's a billionaire. She clarifies, explaining that it is her father and his corporation, Louis Dreyfus, that has all the money. The company, which has been involved in energy, soybean-crushing plants, and real estate, recently donated $1 million to help combat voter suppression — which fits nicely with her role in "Veep."

"It's unbelievable, because whatever I do, people just assume it's true," she told Rolling Stone.

Fans are already buzzing about the new cover with many, but not all, paying compliments.

The full article is set to release on Friday in the latest issue.
