An Abridged Oral History of Jerry’s Girlfriends on Seinfeld 

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

The folks at GQ have tracked down 14 different actresses who guest-starred on “Seinfeld”, playing a girlfriend to Jerry. It’s full of gems, like:

Kristin Davis: I’d done theater, I’d done TV, but I’d never done a sitcom where you have a live audience while you’re being filmed. So when we shot a few things without the audience, I was nervous, but I was holding it together relatively well. Then came the day when the audience comes in, and I said, “Jerry, I’m so nervous!” So when they’re about to call action, Jerry just says to me, “Don’t be nervous. There’re just 37 million people watching.” [laughs] Then between every take, he’d whisper, “37 million people!”

And:

Teri Hatcher: When we were shooting my exit, Larry had me try quite a few different lines. I believe “They’re real, and they’re spectacular” was a line he wrote on the spot during shooting.

If you’re a Seinfeld fan, don’t miss this one.
