"She'd be on TV, and he'd go, 'Mommy!'"


Fresh off filming Friends's hotly anticipated reunion special (of which she's allowed to say essentially nothing), Lisa Kudrow sat down with her old pal Conan O'Brien to discuss (among other things), her son Julian.

Julian, who recently turned 23 (and was the real-life subject of Phoebe's season 4 pregnancy), was never a huge Friends fan, though Kudrow added that he "did really think that everybody else was very funny on the show."

Like all of us, Julian was "obsessed with Jen [Aniston]."

"He'd fly into her lap," Kudrow remembered of Julian visiting set as a child. "Well, she's a love bug, and that made sense. And I was always glad for anyone that Julien felt love for and felt from."

That said, the love may have been misplaced.

"But then at home, she'd be on TV, and he'd go, 'Mommy!'" Kudrow shared. 

I'm sure Julian loves that story! We get it, though — I, too, want Jen to bake me cookies and confirm my self-worth.
