Like her screen character Phoebe Buffay, Lisa Kudrow exuded confidence as a budding actress in Hollywood — until she landed her breakout role on Friends.
This week, Kudrow opened up about feeling insecure about her body while filming the beloved sitcom alongside real-life besties Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox during an episode of the Podcrushed podcast. "I felt confident," Lisa explained, adding that she didn't address body issues until she watched the show back. "It wasn't until Friends that I realized, 'Oh, I don't look like I thought I looked,'" she said. "And that was so upsetting, and that was when it was, oh I actually need to lose weight? Do I have to go on a diet?

Kudrow went on to say that she always considered herself "really skinny" until she saw herself "in dresses and Courteney and Jennifer in dresses."

"At first I was like, 'oh, because they know about tailoring so they can work it out with the costume designer on exactly where to record something,'" she continued, revealing that Aniston and Cox later came to her on fittings. "Then I saw, 'Oh, okay, it's not just about tailoring.' You know? I'm also trying not to say I'm overweight. I just had no idea how my body was formed.”
Kudrow recognized that comparing herself to others was "wrong" and said she started her journey of self-acceptance when she was "in her late 30s or 40s." She concluded, "I just realized, 'oh no — it's fine. I look like this. That's fine. Do what you have to do to be healthy, but that's your body and it's okay.'”
