(Newser) – Funny, goofy Lisa Kudrow lived through hell making friends—back in high school. "I used to cry every night," she tells the Telegraph. "With high school, for many people, it’s just a case of trying to keep breathing and getting through it." The former Friends star reminisced about the bad old days as she talked about her latest role playing a mom in the teen flick Bandslam

Kudrown, 46, said she “really didn’t form that many friendships" in her California schools. "In high school, you keep trying on different identities, figuring out how you are going to be and how you are going to fit into all this. It is a really hard time."
