Veep is returning for its final season March 31, and boy am I going to miss the Selina Meyer crew figuring out a hundred new ways to call Jonah Ryan a human beanstalk. But it turns out that the show’s reputation for churning out the harshest insults is causing problems in Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s personal life.

When Louis-Dreyfus went on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday night, she revealed that because her character curses so much (and beautifully, I might add) on the show, she now curses a lot in real life, too. “I don’t mean like your standard fare. I mean like the really bad ones,” she says. “I’ve gotten very used to using that language and I have to check myself.”

“I’m like, oh, can I have some more of that mother-f***ing, c**k-su***ng maple syrup?” she says. (The curse words were obviously bleeped out on air.)

Isn’t that the Selina Meyer way! Except, she’d probably ask Gary to get her the maple syrup.

Unfortunately I don’t have cable. But Julia is fantastic. Way back in the last century, Julia’s character Elaine was the only one on Seinfeld who cursed!
