“Veep” actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus got the chance to sit next to the real Vice President Tuesday night at a state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande.
Asked what her favorite part of the state dinner was, Louis-Dreyfus said “Look who I’m sitting next to” and pointed to Joe Biden, according to a pool report.
“Hey, stop screwin’ around, she’s my date!” Biden interrupted and laughed. “Just kidding.”
Louis-Dreyfus attended the dinner with her father, William Louis-Dreyfus.
