HANGING UP

LISA KUDROW recently starred with Billy Crystal and Robert DeNiro in director Harold Ramis' comedy "Analyze This" and in Don Roos' critically acclaimed film "The Opposite of Sex." For the role of 'Lucia' in the Roos-scripted and -directed film, she received the Best Supporting Actress Award from the New York Film Critics and an Independent Spirit Award nomination.

Previously, she starred with Mira Sorvino in the hit comedy "Romy & Michele's High School Reunion" and co-starred in Albert Brooks' comedy "Mother." More recently, she starred opposite Toni Collette and Parker Posey in "Clockwatchers."

Best known for her Emmy Award-winning role as 'Phoebe Buffay' on NBC's hit comedy series "Friends," Kudrow has received a total of four Emmy nominations (one win), one Golden Globe nomination and two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations.

Kudrow was always passionate about acting but never thought of it as a career until after college. While growing up, she performed and reenacted many of her favorite movie scenes for family and friends.

When she returned to California after college, her passion for performing returned. Her brother's good friend, actor/comedian Jon Lovitz, inspired her to pursue her dream. She began studying with improvisational instructor Cynthia Szigeti and acting teacher Ian Tucker. In 1989, her dream became a reality when she was accepted as a member of the famed Los Angeles improvisational group, The Groundlings.

Kudrow is shooting a starring role in the Nora Ephron-directed film "Numbers" opposite John Travolta.
