Friends star stereotyped as Phoebe!

Former Friends star Lisa Kudrow believes she will always be known for her role as Phoebe Buffay in the hit sitcom, no matter what else she does in her career.
Kudrow, who played the ditzy musician and masseuse in the hit US TV serial for 10 years, says she will never escape her on-screen alter ego and is still swamped by fans even though the show ended in 2004, reports contactmusic.com.
"People still call me Phoebe and want to talk on the street. Friends is still on TV all the time," she said.
Despite her worldwide fame, the 46-year-old star avoids the spotlight and tries to live as normal a life as possible.
"I try not to notice the attention when I'm out. I usually create some imaginary lines depending on where I am. And I don't look at the periphery, like blinkers. I can't help it. I have always been like that," she said.
Kudrow recently said she would be prepared to star in a Friends movie, but only if everyone involved in the original programme was onboard.
"I don't know how it would work out, because of the type of show Friends is. But it would be fun if everyone wanted to do it, and by everyone, I don't just mean the cast, I mean the creators of the show as well. If there was a way to figure it out then it could happen," she said.
