Lisa Kudrow is close to all of her Friends co-star whom she worked with from 1994 until 2004.
But there is one that stands out in particular that she told Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday she would do anything for if they asked. And it was not the beloved Jennifer Aniston, who played the charming Rachel Green, though Lisa and Jennifer are very much still close these days.
The TV veteran was on the daytime talk show to promote her series HouseBroken.
Friends talk: Lisa Kudrow is close to all of her Friends co-star whom she worked with from 1994 until 2004. But there is one that stands out in particular that she told Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday she would do anything for if they asked
Not her! And it was not the beloved Jennifer Aniston, who played the charming Rachel Green
When Lisa and Ellen played the game Lisa Blanking Kudrow, the blonde comedienne had to answer questions about herself by filling in the blank.
One read: ‘I would do anything blank asked me to.’
The Vassar College alum – who wore a cream colored blouse and black slacks – responded, ‘Courteney Cox. That’s easy.’
‘More so than your child?’ Ellen snapped back. That is when Kudrow said, ‘You know, if he asks me something that’s inappropriate, I have to say no.’

Lisa then changed her answer to her son, 23-year-old Julian Stern whom she shared with husband since 1995, Michel Stern.
The Friends cast included David Schwimmer, Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Cox, Aniston and Matt Le Blanc. The actors came together for a reunion in 2021.
And The Comeback came up as well. ;By the way, your hair looks very similar to your character in The Comeback. I’m hoping The Comeback comes back,’ said DeGeneres.
‘I know, wouldn’t that be fun?’ said Lisa and Ellen then shared: ‘It sure would. That was such a brilliant show. Do you think you’ll do another one?’

Kudrow said: ‘We would like to. We should. And you know what, I think next year it’ll be nine years since the second one, that was nine years since the first one.’
DeGeneres then asked to be in the series because ‘I won’t have anything to do’ now that her talk show is ending.
Kudrow also talked to Ellen about a Romy And Michele High School Reunion sequel, which she said she was up for.
In mid March Lisa said the revisit would be ‘really fun’.
The 58-year-old actress starred alongside Mira Sorvino in the comedy film ‘Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion’ as a pair high school failure who faked their career in order to impress old classmates at a ten-year reunion and Lisa finds the prospect of a sequel exciting.
She said: ‘Tell Disney you want a sequel. [Producer] Robin Schiff will figure it out. She’s got ideas brewing. Yeah, I would. [like to do it] I think it would be really fun!’
The comedy star – who was at the height of the fame with playing Phoebe Buffay in ‘Friends’ at the time the original film was released – also quipped that it would be interesting to find out what the quirky characters would be like in their 50s.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she added: ‘And then a little like, ‘What are they like at our age?!’

Meanwhile , the former ‘Friends’ actress is now starring as Aunt Heidi – a former Broadway star and aunt of aspiring actor Nate Foster – in ‘Better Nate Than Ever’ and spoke about how much she ‘enjoyed’ working on the project.
She said: ‘Very much. I enjoyed working on this incredible…It is an incredible, I’ve seen it. I’m excited to see it. When someone’s just being their true self and everything goes right, you want to cry.’
Lisa worked with teen actors Rueby Wood and Aria Brooks on the coming-of-age musical and gushed about how her young co-stars ‘blew [her] away’ as she praised their professionalism.
She added: ‘Rueby and Aria. They blew me away. They were so great. They were so nice. And we got to like, hangout. Not out. But, in between, we all were in the same space, in the same room, and it was great. I loved talking to them a lot. They always knew their lines. And if they didn’t, it was OK, and who cares, I never know my lines. So, that’s OK.’
