Jul 10, 2024 | Entertainment | 0 comments

Lisa Kudrow may be responsible for many of the laughs that reverberated through the sound stages at Warner Brothers Studios for her portrayal of Phoebe Buffay on “Friends,” but the actress admits that the continuous laughter often “irritated” her.

Her comments come on the heels of co-star Jennifer Aniston’s recent revelation that Kudrow “hated” when the show’s live audience would laugh extensively.

In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Kudrow corrected Aniston’s comments, telling the outlet that hatred was “not exactly” what she felt.

“It irritated me if they would laugh for too long,” Kudrow explained. “God bless ’em, they were so excited to be there, that sometimes the laughter would just be longer than they would have laughed at anything else.”

“I was like, ‘Alright, take it easy. It’s not that funny and there’s more to say.'”
