The funny side effect Julia Louis-Dreyfus is experiencing from all the hand-washing

Julia Louis-Dreyfus visited Jimmy Kimmel Live!, via the internet, on Thursday night. While she was there, the eight-time Emmy winner shared some recent beef with her stupid smartphone.

The actress already had a bit of an obsession with cleanliness prior to the coronavirus concerns, but now it has kicked into high gear. In fact, she washes her hands so much, she said, “I’ve washed away my fingerprints.”

While she was clearly joking, the consequences are no laughing matter. Her hand-washing has affected her fingertips and she is unable to use the fingerprint technology found on many phones and computers.

Louis-Dreyfus also shared some frustration she had in the past with smartphone security, particularly the facial-recognition software. “Whenever I get all glammed up, back in the day when we used to do Hollywood-y things, you know,” said Louis-Dreyfus, “With hair and gowns and things, this damn phone doesn’t recognize me!”

Kimmel tried to spin the problem as a complement to her amazing hair and makeup, but she was not having any of it. “I’m not going to take it as a complement,” she said.
