Oh no, poor Pheobe!

Of all people to have struggled on this show (except for Matthew Perry, who probably struggled the most) this is the most distressing one I've heard about!

So Lisa Kudrow has been busy.

She had a recent appearance on the YouTube show "Hiking With Kevin" where, presumably, she and this guy named Kevin went on a canoe ride.

There, she talked about her time on Friends.

And boy oh boy, did it sound hard for her.

For starters, she said that even though she's played a bunch of dumb girls in movies and stuff, that isn't her.

She felt like she tricked the people in the audition.

Then, season 3 rolled around.

And she said that she was having some real trouble faking her dumbness.

She had worked so hard at being Phoebe that she was starting to lose it a little.

So how did she cope? Well, she got some advice from an old friend.

Specifically, she got advice from Matt Leblanc, who we all know as Joey.

He said:

"You’re her. Relax. You got it. You’ve been doing this f**king character for three years. You’re working too hard. That’s your problem: You don’t need to work as hard. Relax."
