Famous Actress Was Once Told That Her Hair Was 'Unfuckable'

If you grew up in the watching Saturday Night Live and Seinfeld, than you're definitely familiar with actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Currently starring of the new HBO show Veep, the actress recently shared with journalist Adam Baer about a producer at NBC who once tried to convince Julia to straighten out her signature curls for a skit in SNL:
[T]he following day, I was called into one of our producers' offices (as a side note, I should say that I have naturally curly hair), and he said to me, "Julia, I got a call from a bunch of NBC executives after last night's show, and they said that after seeing your hair straight, they all wanna fuck you."
This was apparently his way of trying to entice me into straightening my hair for the rest of season.
Needless to say: I was young and naïve, but I was so shocked that anyone would say anything like that, I just burst out laughing in a hysterical way. I didn't know what else to do.
Julia then went on to land her now infamous role on Seinfeld. Once it became a bit of a hit, Julia ran into the same producer at NBC. Her rebuke at his sexist comment can be described in one word: legendary!
[H]e said to me, "Hey, Julia, I see they're letting you do your hair the way you want now."
That's apparently all he took away from my "Seinfeld" contribution.
The irony of it was that not only did I make my hair curly on "Seinfeld," which may have been a huge mistake now that I think about it, but I enhanced the curl and made it HUGE!
I wonder if that hair wasn't some kind of reaction.
I was saying: 'Not only is this hair going to be curly, it's going to be crazy curly. Take that, motherfucker!!'"
