Eco-friendly actress Julia Louis Dreyfus was mentioned by name as one of the best television actors of 2012 by Bend Bulletin online news magazine on Dec 10, 2012. Bend says, “The funny and profane “Veep” (HBO) broke a long spell of boring Beltway-related TV shows by ignoring politics and deliciously chronicling the raw, ugly ego of Washington — starting with [Julia’s character] Vice President Selina Meyer.”
Dreyfus, who was described by the New York Times as beaing, “a study in haute green” [herself] owns at least one magnificent home that has been renovated completely to produce most of its own energy. Mother Nature News magazine praised the TV actress for being a devout environmentalist and self-proclaimed, “bleeding heart liberal.”
While she does own several homes, she and partner Brad Hall have made every effort to make sure each house leaves as small a carbon footprint as possible. For instance, their beachfront bungalow (located in Montecito, California) was not very energy-efficient when it was built in the 1930s. Now, however, the home boasts energy-efficient alliances, rooftop photovoltaics, has ample natural lighting during daytime hours that reduce the need for using artificial lighting, and more.
The green celebrity home also features hardwood floors created from sustainable hardwoods. The star celebs have also added a retractable sunroof (called a “thermal chimney”) — a really cool high-tech feature that draws hot air up and out of the home, helping to keep residents cooler.
During the renovation of the celebrity property, Julia Louis Dreyfus also opted to use as many salvaged renovation materials as she could. By incorporating them into her fixtures, as well as interior design features, she has managed to create a lovely living space that shows her dedication as a humanitarian interested in protecting the greater unity of all earth’s neighborhoods as well.
Julia Louis-Dryfus got her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame back in 2010 for her work on “Seinfeld.” However, at the time of the ceremony, the stone floor plaque was riddled with Typos. They misspelled her last name and left out the hyphen.
It’s a good thing the actress has proven time and time again to have a great sense of humor. Otherwise, the mistake might not have been so funny.
