In an incredibly candid interview, Lisa Kudrow has admitted she struggled with body image while starring on Friends. Speaking with Marc Maron on his WTF podcast, the 55-year-old said that she felt like a ‘mountain’ next to her former costars Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox.

‘You see yourself on TV and it’s that, “Oh, my God, I’m just a mountain of a girl,”’ the actress said on Monday’s episode. ‘I’m already bigger than Courteney and Jennifer — bigger, like my bones feel bigger. I just felt like this mountain of a woman next to them.’

Lisaalso stressed that she used to get ill easier because she was 'too thin'. ‘Unfortunately for a woman, if you’re underweight, you look good. And that’s all I ever got,’ she said. ‘When I was too thin, I was sick all the time. A cold, sinus infection… I was always sick.’

‘I have a whole battle all the time,’ she added, speaking about how she struggles with body image. ‘I end up with, “So what? So, alright. You’re older. That’s a good thing. Why is that a bad thing?”’

Lisa is still mates with her co-stars, and she caught up with Courteney Cox last month, where both the stars documented their girls’ night in with a cute pic on Instagram.

‘I mean the girls more than the guys,’ Lisa added, when the host asked if the cast has kept in touch since Friends ended in 2004. ‘But yeah, we all still get along. We had dinner a couple years ago, everybody, for the first time since we were finished.'
