There may not be a “Friends” reboot in the works, but fans can still rejoice in castmates reflecting on their time on the show. Series funny girl Lisa Kudrow got serious during a recent interview and revealed that she struggled with body image during the show.
“Unfortunately for a woman, if you’re underweight, you look good. And that’s all I ever got,” Kudrow told Marc Maron on his WTF With Marc Maron podcast. The actress also admitted that her constant illnesses didn’t stop her from keeping her weight down and she found herself comparing her body to co-stars Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston.
“Because you see yourself on TV and it’s that, ‘Oh my god, I’m just a mountain of a girl.’ I’m already bigger than Courteney and Jennifer,” Kudrow said. She did acknowledge her much taller height, but Kudrow went on to say that her bones just felt bigger. However, now that she’s older Kudrow has learned to love the body she’s in despite still having body image struggles.
“I end up with, ‘So what? So, all right. You’re older. That’s a good thing. Why is that a bad thing,'” Kudrow said.
