Lisa Kudrow has delighted TV audiences for decades with her role as hilarious hippy musician Phoebe Buffay in Friends. But despite her Hollywood success and ever-growing fan-base, the actress has not had an easy time in the industry.
“You see yourself on TV and it’s that, ‘Oh, my God, I’m just a mountain of a girl,’” the actress said on Monday’s episode of the podcast. “I’m already bigger than Courteney and Jennifer — bigger, like my bones feel bigger. I just felt like this mountain of a woman next to them.”
At one point, she even made herself sick by starving herself to look more like them.
“Unfortunately for a woman, if you’re underweight, you look good. And that’s all I ever got,” Kudrow said. “When I was too thin, I was sick all the time. A cold, sinus infection… I was always sick.”

Over the years she’s become much more comfortable with herself, but still, at times, struggles with accepting her body.
“I have a whole battle all the time,” she said. “I end up with, ‘So what? So, alright. You’re older. That’s a good thing. Why is that a bad thing?'”
