Julia Louis-Dreyfus rocks the cover of Rolling Stone's April issue. 

Veep, the fictional HBO comedy centered around the first female VP (Louis-Dreyfus), premiered its third season on last Sunday. 

The actress, best known for her work on Seinfeld, is a TV comedy veteran with four Golden Globe nominations and one win, as well as 16 Emmy nods including four wins. 

Despite her success, she says she's experienced a fair amount of sexism in her line of work (surprise, surprise). 

"There is sexism – I'm not denying its existence," she says. 'But I'm saying that I will deny its effort against me. I just pay it no nevermind and say, "Get out of my way."
