Friends: Where Are They Now? - Lisa Kudrow (#4)


#4. Lisa Kudrow:


On Screen

Like Matthew Perry before her, Kudrow also has a short-lived TV show post-Friends, The Comeback, which aired for 13 episodes on HBO (that's 34 fewer than LeBlanc's Joey). Thirteen episodes is not that many, but in Kudrow's defense, The Comeback was actually pretty funny. It was just offbeat and misunderstood. Kudrow did however receive a much deserved Emmy nomination for her work.



Besides The Comeback, Kudrow has appeared in a few movies (check out her credits), including Happy Endings (2005) and Kabluey (2007). Kudrow also appeared in the recent chick-flick P.S. I Love You, and has about 5 other projects in the works.


Why'd she rank above Perry? Both have failed single-season TV shows and 2 indie movies that nobody has seen (with well received performances), but Kudrow gets the edge since she appeared in a movie that some people actually saw in movie theaters (P.S. I Love You), albeit a mediocre one. Kudrow also co-created and produced "The Comeback", which accounts for some bonus points as well.


Off Screen

Like Leblanc, Kudrow is being sued by her former manager. Besides a lawsuit (and who really cares), Kudrow's off-screen life is pretty quiet. She's been married for 13 years, which is like an eternity in Hollywood, so she definitely gets some bonus points there. Kudrow is also the Friend that spilled the beans about 2 years ago that a male friend was preventing the making of a Friends reunion show. She then denied that a reunion was even in the works (and no, there's still no movie...).


Hotness Retained?

Here is an image of Kudrow from late 2007 when she announced the 2008 Film Independent's Spirit Award nominations with Zach Braff. She looks more or less the same. Nice work, Lisa!

i think it's hilarious hgow she's the oldest but i always thought she looked the youngest out of all the girls. it wasn't even her character's persona that attributed to it, but the amount of make-up she wore, so much less than "monica" and "rachel" who seemed to be caked in it.
but hotness most definitely retained, although her look in the comeback was from from as flattering as the one in that last picture

Lookin' good, Lisa. I'm loving the excellent reasoning on who's ranking where - I have to say I agree with your determining of Lisa's success, and hey, major kudos on P.S. I Love You and even more - 13 years of marriage - wowzers! Why is no one making a reality show to study such an insane Hollywood feat? Oh wait... maybe that's why they've made it.
