Julia Louis-Dreyfus says swearing on screen is a ''pleasure''.

The 53-year-old actress is delighted her scrips for 'Veep' - in which she plays US Vice President Selina Meyer- are filled with expletives as she enjoys using language she would have got into trouble for when she was at school.

She told the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine: ''Once, when we were trying to come up with the particular perfect, horrible, swear-y thing to say in 'Veep', I said, 'You do realise that if we were 12, we would get in big trouble for this conversation.' That was not part of the curriculum in high school, and the fact that it is now a part of the curriculum of my life is a pleasure, which is the understatement of the universe.''

The former 'Seinfeld' star - who appeared topless on the cover of the publication - has been nominated for a string of awards throughout her career, but says she has still been subjected to sexism.

She said: ''There is sexism - I'm not denying its existence. 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.'''

And Julia laughed off claims she is a billionaire because of the wealth of her father, Gérard Louis-Dreyfus, who runs the Louis Dreyfus Corporation.

She said: ''I've been attached to that. It's unbelievable, because whatever I do, people just assume it's true. Welcome to the f***in' Internet.''
