The former FRIENDS star feared being typecast after her role as Rachel Green in the hit series, and welcomed the chance to show viewers her sexy side. And she credits her blossoming movie career with helping her through the trauma of divorce.
She says, "It was being a more sexual creature, and I haven't been able to do that.
"Movies I've been in lately have reflected something that's happening in my life.
"I had lots of years where I got boxed in as a character who couldn't find a man."
