Lisa Kudrow is an American actress who first shot to fame in the 90s as Phoebe in Friends, a role that made her famous world-wide – not to mention earning her a fair bit of cash.
The actress was born in 1963 in Los Angeles and, although she had an interest in acting in high school, originally considered following a science path, after her doctor father. However, various smaller roles in films and TV shows in the 80s and early 90s eventually led the star to pursue a career in the entertainment industry instead, eventually landing the role of Phoebe on Friends in 1994, a role which she continued for ten years afterwards.
Lisa’s successful career as an actress as well as a producer and a director have made her a lot of money, but how much? Here’s what we know about Lisa Kudrow’s net worth…
What is Lisa Kudrow’s net worth?
As of 2022, Lisa Kudrow has an estimated net worth of $130million or £107million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. A huge amount of her earnings come from her decades long run on Friends with Lisa, along with her five other main cast members, reported to be earning $1million per episode by the time the cast got to the final series of the show in 2004.
The six main actors of the series also earn a percentage of syndication revenue from the show, which means they get paid a percentage of money from re-runs, thought to net each cast member around $20million a year alone.
Although she’s best known now as an actress, Lisa actually studied biology at university and spent eight years working with her father, a doctor who specialised in headaches, while she acted on the side. After taking on roles on a few sitcoms, she got her big break at the age of 31 as Phoebe on Friends and didn’t look back.
Outside of her work on Friends, Lisa also produced, wrote and starred in comedy series The Comeback and has starred in many more films and TV shows including: PS I Love You, Easy A, The Girl On The Train, Boss Baby and Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.
Lisa Kudrow’s huge net worth has meant she can afford various luxurious homes. She currently lives in Beverly Hills mansion alongside her husband Michael Stern and son Julian, purchased in 1996 for $1.9million. She also previously owned a four bedroom retreat house in Utah, which she sold for $3.6million in 2017.
