Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus doesn’t let a few racy scenes stop her from supporting her son in his role in HBO Max’s “The Sex Lives of College Girls.”
The 11-time Emmy winner appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday to talk about her new Netflix movie You People, starring Eddie Murphy, Nia Long and Jonah Hill.
However, it wasn’t long before the conversation turned to her son, Charlie Hall, and his recent role in the Mindy Kaling-produced HBO Max series.
Hall appeared as Andrew in the show’s second season and had several scandalous scenes with Whitney, played by Alyah Chanelle Scott. Louis-Dreyfus, a proud mom and no stranger to Hollywood, said she didn’t let that stop her from tuning in.
“I think he was really great, I mean he was adorable. He was shagging a girl in the library and I thought it was dynamite!’ the ‘Veep’ star told the late-night host.

The ‘Seinfeld’ star shared her thoughts on the scandalous scenes while discussing her role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and how she relies on her sons Charlie, 25, and Henry, 30, whom she shares with actor Brad Hall .
Louis-Dreyfus explained to Kimmel that her boys help explain the world she works in — in terms of the Marvel Comics — and the conversation turned.
Charlie, who has also appeared on shows like Bel-Air and Single Drunk Female, is best known for his recent role on Mindy Kaling’s HBO series starring Pauline Chalamet, Renee Rapp and Amrit Kaur.
The actor plays Andrew, one of Whitney Chase’s love interests, played by Scott.
The series lives up to its name and features several hot scenes per episode, leading 55-year-old Kimmel to ask if Louis-Dreyfus is watching the show.
“Are you watching the show in fear that you might see something you haven’t seen in a while,” the host joked while the audience laughed.
“I mean, I watched the show,” she replies, carefully choosing what to say next.

The Emmy-winning actress, who appeared nervous, struggled to find her words as the crowd continued to laugh.
At the time, the proud mum described her son as “truly gorgeous” and “adorable” on the show, before sharing the graphic nature of one of the scenes.
“He fucked a girl in the library and I thought it was dynamite!” Louis-Drefyus responded as the crowd and Kimmel blurted out.
‘Feels good teaching them to read, right?’ Kimmel joked back.

The scene the actor described shows Hall’s Andrew and Scott’s Whitney at a study appointment in the library when things take a heated turn between stacks of books.
It’s just one of many scenes between the two characters and could even be considered on the tamer side for the raunchy comedy.
The series, which was renewed for its third season in December, is expected to return sometime in the fall, most likely in November.
It is currently unknown if Hall will return to reprise his role in season three.

Louis-Dreyfus, who Kimmel says has “more Emmys than fingers,” appeared on the show to talk about “You People,” which releases Jan. 27 on Netflix.
It’s been a busy few years for the ‘Veep’ and ‘The New Adventures of Old Christine’ star, who joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2021 and has since appeared in a bevy of other similar projects.
The acclaimed comedy actor made his debut opposite Florence Pugh in Black Widow and also had a surprise big cameo in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which released in November.
“My adult sons are huge Marvel fanatics and for a long time they thought, ‘Mom, you should be in a Marvel movie, you have to be in a Marvel movie.’ I said, ‘Oh yeah, they’re never going to want to that I’d be in a Marvel movie,” and then they did,” she said.

Louis-Dreyfus, who plays Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, is set to begin filming the highly anticipated Thunderbolts movie, along with Pugh to reprise her roles as Yelena Belova, David Harbor as the Red Guardian and Sebastian Stan in his long-running Resumes role as Bucky Barnes.
The film will also welcome Harrison Ford to the Marvel world in the role of Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, replacing the late actor William Hurt, who dies in 2022.
This film is slated for release on July 26, 2024, and according to its IMDB page, is described as “recruiting a group of super villains to go on government missions.”
During the Kimmel interview, the late-night host pulled out a picture of Marvel Comics character Louis-Dreyfus, in which she first appeared, and shared pictures of her comics counterpart while discussing her next project.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a far cry from the comedian’s beginnings in ‘Seinfeld’
When Kimmel reached out to the actor to clarify what the film is about and what fans can expect, the comedian confirmed there will be “good guys doing bad, bad guys doing good.”
She also said she believes her character “straddles both the worlds of good and evil” and her true nature is a little “unclear.”
“I’m sure I don’t understand,” she said, laughing.
