Julia Louis-Dreyfus Takes a Dig at Brett Kavanaugh During Awards Ceremony Speech 


Julia Louis-Dreyfus got in a few jabs at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during her acceptance speech at an award ceremony celebrating her acting career.

On Sunday night at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Dreyfus received the Mark Twain Prize for lifetime achievement in comedy. The Associated Press reports that when Dreyfus took the stage to accept her award, the Holton-Arms School alum spoke about her memorable high school drama performances, including the play “Serendipity.” She then made a reference to the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, also a Holton-Arms graduate, who said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school.

Dreyfus said, “I can remember every single aspect of that play that night, so much so that I would testify under oath about it. But I can’t remember who drove me there or who drove me home.”

In September, Dreyfus signed a letter supporting Blasey Ford’s claims against Kavanaugh.
