Julia Louis-Dreyfus broke her silence Thursday about completing a second round of chemotherapy for her breast cancer diagnosis she revealed last month.

“Chemo #2: finito. We are NOT fucking around here,” the 56-year-old “Veep” star shared on an Instagram post wth her 899,000 followers.

In the first shot of the actress since announcing she had breast cancer, she posed wearing a black hoodie, sunglasses and had a fake mustache drawn above her lips. (RELATED: Here’s Why Julia Louis-Dreyfus Is So Ecstatic With The NYT)


“I’ve got the eye of the tiger. The Fighter dancing through the fire cuz I am a champion and your’re going to hear me ROAR,” she added, including a line from Katy Perry’s 2013 hit “Roar.” “Thanks to @mrtonyhale & @timothycsimons & @katyperry for their hilarious and loving inspiration.”

Last month, the Emmy-award winning actress shared that she was “the one” in eight women that had got breast cancer.

“1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I’m the one,” Louis-Dreyfus shared on her social media account in late September. “The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring friends, and fantastic insurance through my union. The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let’s fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality.”

A rep for the actress said she’s “incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and well wishes.”
