Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Barbra Streisand: if only that was the way they were.

Speaking to Jess Cagle during the latest edition of The Jess Cagle Interview, Louis-Dreyfus revealed that as a child, she dream of becoming Streisand's best friend.

The Veep star's answer came during The Cagle Exercise portion of The Jess Cagle Interview, a round of rapid-fire fill-in-the-blank questions designed to get to the heart of celebrity personalities.

What else did Louis-Dreyfus divulge about herself? Her close friends would describe her as short, strangers would call the actress "really short," Louis-Dreyfus will always dance to Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer," and she's adept at playing cards. As for the thing about herself that she's learned to love? "My fat ass," Louis-Dreyfuss joked.

See Louis-Dreyfus back as the lead of Veep, which returns for its fifth season Sunday night on HBO. Check out the full interview with Louis-Dreyfus below, and listen to it again on Sirius XM's Entertainment Weekly Radio (ch. 105) this weekend.
