LOS ANGELES - Stars, such as Anna Kendrick and Rosie O'Donnell, have paid tribute to Julia Louis-Dreyfus after her breast cancer diagnosis.

The 56-year-old actress announced on social media on Thursday that she is battling breast cancer, and stars have now taken to their own accounts to post their messages of love and support toward the Veep actress during her difficult time.

Pitch Perfect star Kendrick quoted Louis-Dreyfus's admission on Twitter, and wrote: "F--k. F--k. I don't think I realised how much I love this woman, who I don't know. Love her more for speaking up for others in this moment (sic)."

Whilst 55-year-old O'Donnell simply sent her love to the star, writing: "sending love to Julia Louis-Dreyfus reveals breast cancer diagnosis #BEwell (sic)."

Kendrick and O'Donnell aren't the only stars to send their support to Louis-Dreyfus either, as the likes of Olivia Munn, Christina Applegate, and Wanda Sykes have also tweeted in the wake of Julia's diagnosis.

Munn replied to Louis-Dreyfus's tweet and wrote: "Sending you so much love and light", whilst Christina added her own reply which read: "Mama, find me. Let's talk if you want." Playwright Matt Letscher wrote: "You are a goddam force. F--k cancer (sic)."

And Wanda Sykes - who beat breast cancer in 2011 and had a double mastectomy - added: "Love you Julia. You got this."

Louis-Dreyfus revealed her diagnosis on Twitter, and used the announcement to call for her fans to help her in the fight to end "all cancers", and "make universal health care a reality".
