In an interview with The Saturday Evening Post for their Nov/Dec issue, former “Friends” star Lisa Kudrow, 50, opens up about a “life-altering” nose job that she got at the age of 16.
The actress, who was bullied throughout junior and senior high, was tired of feeling “hideous” when she looked in the mirror.
“[The nose job] was life altering. I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous. I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn’t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change.”
But the actress tells the magazine that her appearance wasn't the only thing that bullies used to pick on. She reveals that she struggled with anti-Semitism when she enrolled at Vassar College in 1981. “A friend of mine, when she found out I was Jewish, said, ‘Really? Oh, I don’t like Jews,’” Lisa shares.
In the no-holds-barred interview, The “Web Therapy” star also reveals if she’s ever tried any mind-altering drugs. The answer?
"I never tried that stuff. Because [my father] would tell me stories of people who had smoked pot one time and they had a psychotic break and never recovered,” she says. “And I thought, well, who wants to roll those dice? I don't care what the odds are. [Laughs] I don't like being altered."
And for Lisa, who earned a whopping $1 million per episode by the end of her “Friends” run, fame has had a completely different effect than she ever expected…and it’s not always been positive.
"I had always thought that fame would give you permission to lighten up on yourself. If everybody else likes you, you could finally have permission to love yourself. It's not true," she shares.
