Julia Louis-Dreyfus Takes on #GimmeFive Fitness Challenge with a Little Help from Jimmy Kimmel (VIDEO)

Posted on

Julia Louis-Dreyfus put a drunken spin on the #GimmeFive fitness challenge by involving a late-night talk show host and a bottle of Irish whiskey.

During a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday, the Veep star, 54, joined the list of big names who have participated in First Lady Michelle Obama‘s #GimmeFive exercise campaign.

In the clip posted to her Facebook page, the actress and host Jimmy Kimmel toast St. Patrick’s Day by clinking shot glasses after she recites from a book of Irish toasts: “May your trousers ride high and your bonnet fit tight!”

Kimmel, 47, then lets Louis-Dreyfus jump on his back and completes five slightly wobbly squats as the audience cheered.

The actress, whose character recently stumbled into the presidency on the hit HBO show, blames U.S. Vice President Joe Biden for challenging her to join the movement, which celebrates the fifth anniversary of FLOTUS’s Let’s Move! healthy living crusade.

Louis-Dreyfus isn’t the only star squeezing in some fitness. Check out Beyoncé, Hugh Jackman and more celebrities who are spreading the challenge on social media:
