Lisa Kudrov Shares Her Personal Battle With Body Image

While many women are happy to endure the discomfort of wearing high heels just to add a few inches to their stature, for actress Lisa Kudrow being tall was a struggle. In a recent interview, Kudrow shared that when standing next to her former colleagues Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston she used to feel uncomfortable towering over everyone.

Speaking with Marc Macron of WTF podcast, the star admitted she has had a long battle with body image, and that her physique used to make her feel like she stands out next to her co-stars on Friends, and not in a good way.

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 Courtney and Jennifer — bigger, like my bones, feel bigger. I just felt like this mountain of a woman next to them.” The actress shared that for a long time she everything in her power to be “too thin”, even at the cost of her health.

Fortunately, the 55-year old said she now has a different perspective on things. Kudrow mentions coping with aging as well and says it is still a struggle, but it seems like she is in a much better place right now. “So what?” She says, “So, alright. You’re older. That’s a good thing. Why is that a bad thing?’”

Since the popular show Friends was wrapped up in 2004, Macron was curious as to how Lisa had managed to keep in contact with her co-stars. Kudrow said there was a dinner-reunion in which all the main actors of the show were present and she relished every moment of that night. “We just laughed the whole night. It was really fun.”

In an interview with PEOPLE two years ago, Kudrow told that she’d rather watch the bloopers than re-watch the Friends show if it is on, partially because she didn’t want to see herself in a shape she may not like.
