From the sound of things, 10½-year-old Julian Murray Stern has caught the acting bug from mom Lisa Kudrow. In a new interview with, the 45-year-old Friends star says that her son thinks that a career in entertainment “would be fun.” So much so, for her latest movie — Hotel for Dogs, in theaters now — Lisa says Julian was even willing to help mom learn her lines! “He was really good,” she reveals.

“School offers opportunities for him to be in plays and he is a performer. There’s no doubt, whether it’s acting, music, stand-up comedy or talk shows. He loves it. Every school production he is involved in he stands out and he doesn’t do it on purpose. He just gets into this performance zone and he goes.”

Some dreams die hard, however. “But, he wants to own a shopping mall, so that could be his occupation,” Lisa adds.

Julian is her son with husband Michel Stern, a French businessman.

I love Lisa Kudrow especially in Friends as Phoebe!🙂 Glad to know that she’s still active in the acting industry. And I’m amused to learn that her kid has caught the acting bug as well. May he grow up as funny and as talented as his mom.

I’ve always wondered if Julian can speak french. I know Lisa can and I think Julian can but…

They live in Usa and his mum is american so I think that puts more weight on an english speaking french.

Well I mean, My mum is spanish and my dad french, I live in france and even though I speak a correct spanish I speak drench better.

And by Brother who is the son of my stepdad who is german and my mother only speaks french, not german or spanish yet they tried to teach him when he was younger.

Not really interesting i guess but everytime I see a multi languages family I wonder this.

I think she said a few years back they just speak French at home? Julian’s side of the family can’t speak English and they go to France every summer, so I’m almost 100% sure he does speak French.

Lucky guy!
