See How Jennifer Aniston Sent Love to Her 'Friends' Co-star Lisa Kudrow on Her 57th Birthday
Jennifer Aniston marked her longtime companion and “Friends” co-star, Lisa Kudrow’s birthday, with a few sentimental posts recently.
Even though “Friends” ended in May 2004 after a ten-year run, Jennifer Aniston and her co-star, Lisa Kudrow, have remained buddies. Jennifer showed proof of their long-lasting bond when she marked Lisa’s 57th birthday in a sweet way.
According to People, the 51-year-old actress took to her Instagram Story to share two pictures of her and the celebrant. While the first Story featured an image of the pals looking fiercely at the camera, the second Story showed Lisa and Jennifer sharing a hug.
Jennifer finished off the birthday felicitations with a video of Lisa and Taylor Swift singing “Smelly Cat” (the hit song from Lisa’s “Friends” character, Phoebe Buffay) on a stage in 2015.
Lisa was most recently in the news for stating that she avoided watching reruns of “Friends” because she had hopes that “one day we sit down and watch them together." Insider highlighted that the 57-year-old’s revelation came during a virtual conversation between her and Jennifer.
The site pointed out that while Lisa claimed not to watch the show, her counterpart was excited to admit that she didn’t mind “stumbling on a “Friends” episode.”
Although she’s widely known for her role on “Friends,” TV Guide disclosed that Lisa has featured on other projects such as “Mad About You,” “The Opposite of Sex, “Clockwatchers,” and “Analyze This.”
Asides being an award-winning actress, the 57-year-old is also the proud wife to Michael Stern, with whom she shares a son, Julian Murray Stern. Michael and Lisa, who have been married since 1995, have managed to keep their relationship and family away from the glare of the public.
That, however, didn’t stop Lisa from making a joke from her temporary separation from her husband during some part of the lockdown brought on by the outbreak of COVID-19.
Hello! Magazine reported that the family split up after Lisa and Julian had to leave Michael in their Palm Springs home for the much colder weather in Beverly Hills.
As for her role on “Friends,” fans are yet to forget that Lisa flaunted her real pregnancy on the show. Mental Floss recalled that when the actress fell pregnant in 1997, the writers decided that her character needed to act as a surrogate for her onscreen brother, Frank Jr.’s triplets.
That move made the show even more endearing to fans who haven’t stopped demanding the show’s revival.
