In a recent interview, Friends star, Lisa Kudrow has revealed that she was never fully trusted on the set of the iconic TV show.
Keep scrolling for the full story, and to find out why...
We were first introduced to the Friends gang in 1994.
via: GettyRoss, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Joey burst onto our screens in September 1994.
Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman...
via: IMDBThe comedy followed the friends, who live in the same New York apartment block, as they navigated through their mid-twenties.
Over the years, we became incredibly attached to these characters...Who, in a way, became our own friends... It's corny, but it's true.
Though many of us still remain divided on one thing...Ross and Rachel were not on a break. Period.
There were many iconic moments throughout the show's ten seasons.Rachel's English trifle, Chandler's nubbin, the time Joey got a Thanksgiving turkey stuck on his head... The list could go on.
And it remains just as successful today.Despite the show coming to an end in 2004, it stands as one of the most-watched shows on Netflix, and its fanbase is as strong as ever.
So, over the years, the cast have been propelled to unprecedented levels of fame.And none of us can quite see them in anything else.
The gang earned a lot of money during those 10 years...Allegedly, the cast was each on an eye-watering $1 million salary per episode in the later seasons of the show - a history-breaking figure.
But, more recently...
via: IMDBSome of the actors have been coming forward with some pretty shocking claims about their time on the show.
Firstly, some cast members have admitted to not remembering much from filming Friends.
via: GettyYep, despite the show running for a decade, and all of them earning a staggering amount of money for their roles, some of the actors are having a hard time remembering their time on the set.
Courteney Cox was the first to come forward with her revelation.
via: GettyRecently, the actress admitted that she has no memories from filming on the set of Friends.
Courteney credited this shocking revealtion to simply "having a bad memory"...
“I don’t remember even being on the show," the actress said.
“I have such a bad memory. I remember obviously loving everybody there and having fun, and certain times in my life that I remember I was there for, but I don’t remember episodes."
But she has said she has decided to spend her quarantine time binging the show to make up for it.
via: Getty“I decided during this time, because people love the show so much, I decided to binge-watch Friends. I just started season 1… and it’s really good!"
Obviously, fans were completely shocked by her confession...And then, a second member of the cast came forward with the same revelation.
Lisa Kudrow admitted that she too, can't remember anything from her Friends days.
via: GettyKudrow, who portrayed the wonderfully eccentric, Phoebe Buffay, recently opened up about her memory loss.
Now, what does this mean?Does Kudrow remember singing "Smelly Cat"?
Or the time she had her brothers' triplets?Surely, she'll remember this one.
And does she remember seducing Chandler?Well, keep scrolling to hear what she had to say on the matter.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about the later series of the show, Kudrow explained:
via: Getty"I haven’t seen some of the later episodes, to be honest. And then I don’t rewatch them. So it’s really fun to talk about things."
She admitted that reminiscing was always "fun."
via: Getty"Someone remembers it one way and someone remembers something else about it altogether, and I don’t know, it’s really fun. It’s great."
She then revealed the 2 cast members who remember everything.
via: Getty"And then some people have phenomenal memories. Jennifer (Anniston) remembers everything and Matt (LeBlanc) remembers everything." This then prompted her to quip, "And I remember nothing."
Well, maybe it's for the best that Kudrow can't remember much...Because, apparently, she wasn't one of the most trusted cast members on set.
This week, Lisa appeared virtually on Jimmy Kimmel: Live From His House...
via: YouTubeWhere she reminisced about her days on the set of the infamous TV show.
The topic turned to whether Kudrow had managed to get any memorabilia from the set...
via: YouTubeAnd she revealed just how insanely strict the set's security was.
It turns out that they really didn't trust the actress.
via: YouTubeMaybe it was because her character was quite kooky, but the security guards used to search her car every night. She explained, "I mean, my car used to get searched every night when I left."
But, despite the strict security measures...Kudrow did manage to get her hands on one item from the set.
The actress was able to snap up a cookie jar from Monica and Rachel's apartment...And it was all thanks to her co-star, Matthew Perry, that she was able to get her hands on it.
And, amazingly, she remembers it all perfectly!
via: YouTubeAfter seeing Perry with some goodies from the set, she couldn't believe that he'd managed to get his hands on them, so she quizzed him on it. She told Jimmy: "I think the first thing I asked was, 'This was so nice - did you get permission?'"
But why a cookie jar?
via: YouTubeSurely, she'd want to steal Hugsy the penguin? Anyway, she explained: "We’re shooting a scene, years before we were finished, and my line was, 'Oh! I better get going'. As the words were coming out, I went, 'Oh, good, there’s a clock.' I gestured to that, and said, 'Oh! Look at the time. I gotta get going.'" FYI, the cookie jar, which is placed behind Kudrow above, has a clock on the front.
"And during shooting, Matthew said, 'Did you look at the cookie jar and say look at the time?'"
