Almost 20 years after its final episode graced the small screen, Seinfeld still reigns as one of TV's biggest triumphs. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who won a myriad of honors for her performance as the smart but slightly neurotic Elaine Benes, reflects on the final days of the '90s sitcom in a new interview with PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle.

"At the time, I was ready to take a break. I had two very young kids. I had a baby and a 5-year-old. I wanted calm, and [to] just sort of hunker down at home," Louis-Dreyfus, 55, explained of Seinfeld's end after nine seasons.

"It was definitely bittersweet though. That night of our last show … was very emotional. The motto of our show was 'No hugging, no learning,' which is true. We were never trying to teach or [be] sentimental, but in fact, we were very sentimental," she said. "That night when we all bid goodbye was unbelievably wrenching."

Happy President's Day! From Kevin Spacey to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Our Favorite On-Screen POTUSes

No matter what you think about the current president, it's hard to throw shade at these fictional commanders-in-chief on their big day (TV and movie presidents totally count, right?).

Morgan Freeman's first term was in 1998's Deep Impact, in which he played President Beck, the man tasked with seeing the nation through a comet impact that reduced most of the world to rubble.

Michael Douglas swept Annette Bening off her feet (and audiences along with her) as President Andrew Shepherd in The American President. Both a critical and a popular success, the film grossed more than $100 million at the box office, and the Aaron Sorkin-penned screenplay served as an inspiration for the West Wing series Sorkin went on to write.
