Julia Louis-Dreyfus has shared a sweet snap of herself with her husband after they celebrated Christmas together.

The 56-year-old actress is currently battling breast cancer - which she revealed to her Instagram followers in September - but that didn't stop her from ringing in the holiday season in style as she met her ''hero'' husband Brad Hall under the mistletoe where they shared a loving kiss.

Julia - who has sons Henry, 25, and Charles, 20, with Brad - shared a photo of the heart warming moment on her Instagram account on Wednesday (27.12.17), and wrote: ''Our pal, @stevenrstroud captured this #mistletoe moment on Xmas eve. #love #myhero (sic)''

It comes after the 'Veep' star recently revealed she has completed her second round of chemotherapy, and told her fans she wasn't ''f***ing around'' when it comes to fighting the illness.

Julia posted a picture on social media in October of herself with a draw-on moustache, and quoted musician Katy Perry's hit single 'Roar' in the caption.

She wrote: ''Chemo #2: finito. We are NOT fucking around here. ''I've got the eye of the tiger. The Fighter dancing through the fire cuz I am a champion and your're going to hear me ROAR.'' Thanks to @mrtonyhale& @timothycsimons & @katyperry for their hilarious and loving inspiration. (sic)''

The star revealed her cancer diagnoses in September in a message posted to Instgram, where she also called for her fans to help her in the fight to end ''all cancers'', and ''make universal health care a reality''.

She wrote: ''1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I'm the one.

''The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union. The bad news is that not all women are so lucky. So let's fight all cancers and make universal healthcare a reality.''
