Best known for her roles as Elaine on the 90s sitcom “Seinfeld” and Christine on the sitcom “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus is an heiress to Louis-Dreyfus Energy Services. In the 19th century Julia’s great-great-grandfather Leopold started the Louis Dreyfus Group, a high quality commodities and multinational shipping company, which is still controlled by their family. Her father, wealthy financier Gerard Louis-Dreyfus, served as Chairman of the Louis-Dreyfus group of companies, so the actress had it made before she ever lifted a finger. Even though Julia has half-sisters Emma and Phoebe, she is going to inherit a great portion of the family fortune.
Born with the grand name Julia Scarlett Elizabeth Louis-Dreyfus, she really never had to work a day in her life. Her estimated net worth totals to $3 billion. But Julia loves her work and she is considered to be a very successful American actress, producer and comedian. Throughout her career Julia Louis-Dreyfus has received two Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and five Screen Actors Guild Awards.
