Julia Louis-Dreyfus said she's been asked by top Democrats to run for office, but the actress said it will never happen.

Dreyfus didn't say which Democrats approached her, but she told Ben Terris of The Washington Post that her response was "not in a million years."

Louis-Dreyfus stars in HBO's hit comedy show "Veep," playing vice president and then President Selina Meyer.

Louis-Dreyfus, also known for her work on "Seinfeld," publicly endorsed former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in July, according to the Washington Examiner.

Dreyfus has also been vocal about her disdain for President Donald Trump.

"My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France. I'm an American patriot, and I love this country," she said about Trump's immigration ban at the SAG Awards in January. "Because I love this country, I am horrified by its blemishes and this immigrant ban is a blemish and it's un-American."

The Emmy-winning actress is not the only celebrity who has perhaps been approached about a potential Democratic bid in the 2020 presidential election, according to The Blaze.

Among those who have expressed an interest in running for office have been Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook; Mark Cuban, the owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks; and Bob Iger, Walt Disney's chief executive.

Most recently, during an interview on "The David Rubinstein Show," Oprah Winfrey told Rubinstein that she's thought about running, Bloomberg reported.

"I thought, 'Oh, gee, I don't have the experience,'" Winfrey said last month, according to The Blaze. "I don't know enough. And now I'm thinking, 'Oh. Oh.'"
