Julia Louis-Dreyfus Valiantly Charges Through ‘Hot Ones’

Julia Louis-Dreyfus tried First We Feast’s Hot Ones challenge, and folks, this is a legendary effort for someone who says they only like a “little bit of spice.”

While burning up from the very first hot sauce (which is frankly what I do just watching this show), the multiple Emmy-winning actor faces that wall of pain like a champ. From the Spicy Shark and Jalapeno Chico onward, it’s a tough slog, but Louis-Dreyfus both visibly hates it and makes it to the end.

“I’m firing my publicist,” she says, right before Da Bomb. “I also want a lawyer. Now.”

All while keeping an impressive cool, Louis-Dreyfus speaks about doing student improv at Northwestern, working again with director Nicole Holofcner on dramatic comedy You Hurt My Feelings, playing Val in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, her podcast Wiser Than Me, and her iconic performance in Veep, and how minuscule the Seinfeld set was.

A valiant effort.
