julia louis-dreyfus

Maybe I'm the only one in the dark here, but I had no idea that Julia Louis-Dreyfus was the daughter of a billionaire. I was just looking at the Forbes list of billionaires, and her father Gérard Louis-Dreyfus ranks 200 with an estimated worth of $3.4 billion.
Now, at 73, is passing the chief executive torch of family conglomerate Louis-Dreyfus Group to nephew Robert Louis-Dreyfus, whose background includes high-profile stints at Adidas, pharmaceutical research firm IMS and ad giant Saatchi & Saatchi. Gerard, who remains chairman, himself inherited the group-which includes real estate, shipping, oil, cotton and orange juice. Graduate of Duke Law School worked briefly for law firm Dewey Ballantine in New York. Despite his sprawling conglomerate, may be best known as the father of Seinfeld actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Julia, whose real name is Julia Elizabeth Scarlett Louis-Dreyfus, is reportedly worth more than $500 million dollars herself, even without her family's money - due in large part to her syndication deals from Sienfeld. She's also been nominated for an Emmy for The New Adventures of Old Christine, which has seemingly broken the supposed Sienfeld curse.
