Lisa Kudrow Shares Son's Unique Career Plans

Like many a celebrity baby before him, Julian Murray Stern  — the 10-year-old son of actress Lisa Kudrow — hopes to follow in the famous footsteps of his mom and pursue a career in acting. The soundstage is just a means to an end for young Julian, however, who actually has no intention of staying an actor for long. During a Thursday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Lisa revealed that her son’s "big dream" is to "own a mall" — and he plans to make that dream a reality with money he earns through acting. Like any good entrepreneur, Julian has a back-up plan in place. "It’s really smart," Lisa explained. "He says, ‘After college, I’ll live with my two best friends, because they’re going to be baseball players, so they’re going to give me money so I can go to business school to own a mall."

Lisa noted that she is conspicuously absent from Julian’s master plan, joking, "I love that I’m out of the picture as far as financing anything." That’s not to say that her son isn’t holding a spot for her at his hypotherical mall, however. "He said he’s going to give me a job," Lisa said. "He’s going to let me bake cookies at one of the stores."

Julian is Lisa’s son with husband Michel Stern; the couple have been married for 13 years.

You know I realize I forgot she was a mommy. I think she is underrated as an actress

Wow, it just doesn’t seem that Lisa’s son Julian can be 10 years old already! I remember when she was pregnant with him on Friends. Time sure does fly by! When I saw the picture above and saw Julian and his age I just couldn’t believe it, but Lisa sure does seem like a great Mom!

It feels weird that she actually has a son.
