"These are the jobs I got," she said of her usual comedic roles. "And don't get me wrong, I love making people laugh. But now it turns out, I really like making people cry."
In the film, Louis-Dreyfus portrays a women in a relationship with her friend's ex-husband, played by the late James Gandolfini. "The job meant the world to me," Louis-Dreyfus told TODAY's Savannah Guthrie. "And working with James Gandolfini on this project was just dreamy."
Gandolfini died two months before the film's release and the actress shared that she still wishes she could share all of the film's recent accolades with him. "I keep expecting him to be here," she said.
Gandolfini has received several posthumous nominations for his work in the film, including supporting actor nods from Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Independent Spirit Awards and the Critics' Choice Awards.
