Julia Louis-Dreyfus said she had to primp for Northwestern basketball games

Forget going to the NCAA tournament. Northwestern basketball player Charlie Hall must be overjoyed that Jimmy Kimmel called him funny on Wednesday's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

"Oh boy, he is going to ride that comment forever," said Hall's mother, "Veep" star Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Kimmel and Louis-Dreyfus discussed Northwestern's "thrilling ride" in last month's tournament, and Kimmel pointed out that television cameras focused on her a lot during Northwestern games.

"It was a very disconcerting thing to go to these things I love, but to be thinking about how you look and you gotta sit up straight, like I'm doing right now. I don't normally sit like this, you know," Louis-Dreyfus said. "And I was, like, trying to find people to blow my hair out in Salt Lake. Gotta remember to bring mascara and all this stuff. It's not usually my thing."

Louis-Dreyfus then knocked on Kimmel's desk because she's superstitious, but he said his desk isn't made of wood, so who knows what that means for Northwestern's chances of making the tournament next year. The team lost to No. 1 seed Gonzaga in the second round of this year's tournament.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs 10:35 p.m. weeknights on ABC.
