The exact sum of money that the cast of Friends took home per episode is pretty widely known given how historically astronomical it was. But in Lisa Kudrow's case, we have even more specific numbers regarding her pay compared to her other cast members.

According to The Richest, Kudrow has a net worth of approximately $60 million as of 2018, and part of the reason we know this is because of a court case that went down over Kudrow's finances.

Kudrow and her former manager Scott Howard went through an extensive legal battle that escalated through the court system after Howard claimed Kudrow owed five percent of her earnings to him after they parted ways in 2007. What came of this? Kudrow had to testify about money specifics.

When she did so, Kudrow confirmed that she earned about $13,500 per episode of Friends, which increased to $1,040,000 plus $5 million back-end compensation after the series became a hit. Not a bad increase.

Eventually, Kudrow lost the $1.6 million lawsuit. Since then, however, she's had a slew of gigs from the Neighbors franchise to recurring roles on Grace & Frankie and Scandal.
