Lisa Kudrow, best known for playing Phoebe on the hit sitcom Friends, found her own real-life romance with French advertising executive Michel Stern. Despite their instant connection when they first met in the late eighties, Stern was already in a relationship at the time. As a result, they had to wait for the right moment to explore their undeniable chemistry. In 1995, just a year after Friends made its debut on NBC, the couple tied the knot. Their lasting marriage of over two decades is built on mutual respect and understanding, as Kudrow shared in a Glamour interview that they both value and honor each other’s independence.
