When Julia Louis-Dreyfus won the 2006 Emmy for her role in The New Adventures of Old Christine, she proved that the Seinfeld curse had finally been lifted.
The CBS comedy, now in its fifth season, has remained a hit – thanks to Julia's hilarious portrayal of a divorced mom struggling to raise her son and reel in a new man.
Julia's own 22-year marriage to writer-actor Brad Hall is a Hollywood success story, but the mom to sons Henry, 17, and Charles, 12, does relate to her character's devotion to motherhood.
"I'm a working mom, and I'm very well-intentioned," she tells iVillage. "Obviously, I make mistakes. I'd like to think I don't make the same kind of mistakes as Christine does day in and day out. But I definitely share her desperate desire to do right by her child."
And for the 48-year-old actress, age is just a number. "I don't feel old," she says. "I feel in my mind that I'm maybe 30. And I hope I always will."
