Lisa Kudrow was "irritated" if the 'Friends' studio audience laughed for too long.

The 60-year-old actress played Phoebe Buffay on the classic NBC sitcom and whilst her co-star Jennifer Aniston - who played waitress Rachel Green - recently claimed that that Lisa "hated" those who turned up to watch the taping live in LA, she has now insisted that "was not" exactly the case.

She told 'Entertainment Tonight': "No, that's not exactly - no, no. It irritated me if they would laugh for too long!"

'Friends' ran for 10 seasons from 1994 until 2004 and generated almost $1.5 billion in revenue, and 'The Morning Show' star Jennifer also recalled that on the day the first episode premiered, she and Chandler Bing actor Matthew Perry - who died in October 2023 at the age of 54 - went to play a prank on their co-star Lisa, who was getting her hair coloured in a nearby salon.

Speaking during an interview with 'Abbott Elementary' star Quinta Brunson for Variety's 'Actors on Actors' series, she said: "Matthew Perry and I were having lunch somewhere, and we knew Lisa was getting her hair coloured.

"So we ran into the hair salon, and I snuck up — she was in the sink — and I took the nozzle from the guy that was supposed to be doing it and just started washing her hair. It definitely flew out of control, and that was unfortunate. But the excitement we had, it feels like yesterday!"

In her new interview, Lisa confirmed that did actually happen and believes that was because Jennifer and Matthew just wanted to celebrate their new project with her.

She said: "Yes, that did really happen. And I think they were just so excited because something happened. We heard we got picked up or we heard...something happened. They just couldn't stand that we weren't all together so they came to where I was getting my hair done, and yeah, I think Jen did wash my hair! It was thrilling."
