Friends Star Lisa Kudrow Wanted to Become a Doctor

We all love Lisa Kudrow for portraying the quirky Phoebe Buffay in Friends. The 58-year-old American actress recently appeared on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and revealed the importance of loving oneself in her new film “Better Nate Than Never”.

Lisa also went down memory lane and spoke about learning the guitar for Friends, her new season of “Who Do You Think You Are?” and her amazing SAG award moment. Most importantly, Lisa revealed that she always wanted to become a doctor.

She appeared on the Kelly Clarkson show today and revealed that her family includes musicians and doctors, except for herself. Well, we all have seen her guitar-playing skills in Friends.

Kelly Clarkson quickly asked her, “Is it true that you originally didn’t even want to do acting, you always wanted to be a doctor?” Lisa confidently replied, “Yes, it is true!” Kelly jokingly said, “Me too, but then I guess I thought, we’ll see.” 

Lisa revealed how she didn’t feel the pressure of becoming a doctor because her father was a doctor and her brother was in medical school. She stated, “I passionately wanted to become a doctor.”

Lisa further revealed that she loved biology and she took Honors Biology. She was sure that becoming a doctor is something that she wanted. However, she diverted to becoming an actress. She would drive around LA and listen to all those commercials. She said, “I’d think, wait, this is what I want.”
