Lisa Kudrow reveals getting nose job at 16

Los Angeles: `Friend` star Lisa Kudrow has revealed that she underwent a nose job while she was just 16.

The 50-year-old actress said she decided to get rhinoplasty on her nose after her friends turned their back on her because she did not look good, reported Ace Showbiz.

"That was life altering. I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous. I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn`t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change," Kudrow said.

"All of junior high felt upside down to me. It was not, like, the nice people who were popular, it wasn`t the most entertaining people -- it was the meanest people who were popular," she added.

Kudrow, who is best known for playing the lovable character of Phoebe Buffay in `Friend`, said her disheartening teenage experiences helped her portray her role.

"She was basically a ditzy girl who lived in a happier reality than everybody else, because everything was so gloomy around her.

That`s what I decided," Kudrow said.

"And she was fearless and unapologetic. Now on Twitter or Facebook I see young girls saying, `I identify with Phoebe because I`m different too.` That`s nice, to think that people who don`t feel they fit in perfectly well can relate to that character," she said.
