Best known for playing Phoebe buffay on NBC’s now iconic sitcom Friends, Lisa kudrowThe eccentric nature of the series is one of the many reasons that millions of fans still enjoy watching reruns of the series today. Like the fictional fictionalized massage therapist she once played – who ultimately fell in love with Mike Hannigan (Paul Rudd) – Lisa also fell in love with her real husband, Michel stern, most unexpectedly off the screen.
Lisa and the Advertising executive born in France He first crossed paths in the 1980s while dating his roommate. Despite the instant crush on him, Lisa respected their relationship and remained silent about her feelings.
“I was living with a French girl and he had just moved here and they were dating when we first met,” she said, according to The daily mail. “But I’m terribly polite so I saw him and I went, ‘Well he’s the perfect man and it’s all ruined because now they’re together and I can’t [try to start something with him]. ”
She continued: “I thought it wasn’t nice to flirt. But the minute I saw him, I was like, “Well, that’s it, he’s here. When he would pick her up he would say, “Oh, hello Lisa”, and I would say “Hi”, and I was going to leave the room and he thought I was a monster. “
Two and a half months later, Lisa and Michel’s roommate ended their relationship, and the former couple remained friends. This will later prove to be an important connection. “Six years later I met him again at his birthday party and we never stopped”, she said.
One week after the first season of Friends Completed, Lisa married Michel on May 27, 1995. From the start of their union, the duo made a pact that they would always work hard on their relationship.
“When [Michel and I] decided to get married, we understood [that] we don’t promise to love each other forever because you can’t do that, but we do promise to work on any issues that arise. ” she said Charm in 2014.
On May 7, 1998, the couple welcomed their first and only child, a son named Julian Murray Stern. When Lisa announced her actual pregnancy, the writers of Friends Incorporated it into the script for Phoebe season 4 to explain her growing belly. Fans now know that’s when the Central Perk frontman became a substitute for his brother’s triplets.
Decades later, the Emmy-winning actress recalled a special ritual that the Friends the cast did, which ultimately included her son, Julian.
“The six of us would do a little group backstage and just say, ‘Alright, put on a good show, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you'” she said People in 2018. “And when I was pregnant, then they were like, ‘Good show, I love you, I love you, I love you, little Julian!’ Because we knew it was a boy and that was his name. So sweet, they included my little fetus in the clique. “
Coincidentally, the HBO Max special Friends: Reunion debuts on Lisa and Michel’s 26th wedding anniversary. Last year, the couple couldn’t celebrate the day together as the coronavirus pandemic forced them to quarantine themselves separately. Yet that did not detract from the significance of this milestone.
“We are so used to not being able to be together on our anniversary”, she said on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2020. “We were like, ‘Oh, well. Does that matter? I love you. You still love me? Yeah. Great. We’re good.'”
