In a recent interview with Variety, Julia compared her battle with cancer to a life of confinement amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I had no sense of arrogance about [the pandemic],’ she said. “When you are confronted with your mortality the way cancer brings you – the pandemic that I found was eerily the same. “
She added that cancer made her realize that “life is short” and made her want to travel more with her husband Brad and their children.
Brad – by his full name William Bradford Hall – is also a famous comedian, director and screenwriter, best known for playing the role of presenter on SNL’s Weekend Update and creating the sitcoms The Single Guy and Watching Ellie.
He has also made appearances on Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
