Blame it on a drunken stupor. That's what Toronto Mayor Rob Ford did.

If you pick up the new issue of Rolling Stone, you'll get to see in Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the buff. The 53-year-old "Veep" actress unveiled the magazine's cover photo on Twitter:

She tweeted that she's about to get more Twitter followers -- and she's right. We just started following her.

Her butt-naked appearance coincides with the third season of "Veep," which premiered on Sunday. In the issue, which hits newsstands on Friday, Louis-Dreyfus dishes on the upcoming season (she's thrilled her character gets to curse a lot), her beloved role on "Seinfeld" (which she landed partly because of her "disposition") and the entertainment industry.

"There is sexism -- I'm not denying its existence," she said. "But I'm saying that I will deny its effort against me. I just pay it no nevermind and say, 'Get out of my way.'"

"Veep" airs Sundays at 10:30 p.m. ET on HBO.
