‘Friends’ is one of the most popular television shows of all time. Its popularity has grown worldwide, and the sitcom has become a household name. Lisa Kudrow, who portrayed Phoebe Buffay on the show, recently opened out about how her son feels about her role.
Kudrow recently appeared for an interview with Seth Myers on his late-night television show, where she discussed her “Friends” role. She said her 24-year-old son, Julian Murray Stern, was surprised by the humor of her character on the show.
He said, ‘It’s actually really funny, and I mean, the guys are so funny.’ And he’s like, ‘No, I mean, you’re funny, too.’ And never in my life have I wanted to tell my own kid, like, ‘f*ck you.’
The 58-year-old actress confessed that her kid preferred the other characters over Phoebe. She was taken aback by her son’s reaction to her role. In fact, Kudrow thinks that reaction was very demeaning.
He was impressed. He goes, ‘It’s actually really funny,’
But don’t be so demeaning! Wow!
Lisa Kudrow has received critical acclaim for playing Phoebe, including a Primetime Emmy Award. This role propelled her to international stardom which she continues to enjoy today. She was the only cast member on the show who had to go through two auditions.
