Lisa Kudrow’s 24-year-old son, Julian, is not a big fan of her character on “Friends.”
During an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Kudrow, 58, revealed that Julian saw the show when he was in grade school and was “impressed” by what he saw.
“He was five when we were finished… but he did start watching when his friends at school started watching,” she explained. “He watched it and he was impressed. He said, ‘It’s actually really funny, I mean, the guys are so funny.'”
He’s like, ‘No, I mean you’re funny too,'” she quipped. “Never in my life have I wanted to tell my own kid, like, ‘F— you!’ I mean, I thought it, I didn’t say it.”
“It’s not required that you’re a fan,” she continued. “You don’t have to like what I do. But don’t be so demeaning!”
This isn’t the first time Kudrow has recalled her son’s relationship with Friends. She told OK! magazine about her previous role in Friends: “We don’t talk about it a lot. He’s been thrilled about certain things I’ve done, but he’s not a fan of mine and I don’t want him to be.
“I want him to be my son. He should hold me accountable for parental things.”
She added: “He’s unbelievably great. We lucked out. I try to advise him about girls, then I realise I probably don’t know what I’m talking about.”
Kudrow revealed that Julian however, love her work on The Comeback, which he watched while sick with COVID-19.
“[He] called me up and said, ‘So, I just watched the first two episodes. It’s really good, Mom.’ I said, ‘Thanks.’ He said, ‘Can I ask you some questions about that?’ ” recounted Kudrow.
“Like, yes! I almost started crying! I didn’t think that anyone in my family liked that show,” she confessed.
