Lisa Kudrow says she was relieved when she realized she didn’t have to be a “celebrity” … The 57-year-old actress rose to fame for her role as Phoebe Buffay in Friends. She said she first assumed her star status, which meant she also had to spend a lot of time at parties in order to appear in magazines.
But Lisa “hated” the social circuit, so she was delighted to realize that she didn’t have to commit to it and could instead lead a relatively normal life outside of work, according to the report. Daily Mail.
“Being a celebrity is completely different from being an actor. It’s pretty easy to be a celebrity, you just have to show up at parties, be in the right places, and get your picture featured in magazines – it’s really doable. It’s a lot easier than thriving as an actor, working on your acting and finding interesting roles, which is actually difficult. “, did she say. “When Friends started walking, I thought my job was to be a celebrity and I thought to myself: “Hmmm, should I go to this party or that other? Should I leave now or wait a few more minutes? And I tried and I hated – really, hated it. And then I realized that one has nothing to do with the other. I could still be an actor without being a celebrity “, continued the actress.
“I could always get the jobs I wanted and play the roles I wanted to play, and I was also able to take my son to school and be home at night for dinner with my husband. So it was nice to be able to let go of the other things, which weren’t me at all “, confided the star.
Lisa Kudrow however, specifies that she has always flourished creatively. “There is something nomadic about being an actor and if we feel stuck with the only thing we are allowed to do, we can start to feel frustrated. But I never felt this because while I was doing Friends, the producers let me go and make independent films too. I remember really enjoying it at the time, and thinking: ‘My God, this is life’ “, the artist told Candis magazine.
