Lisa Kudrow may not be in the same place as her son Julian, but she still found a sweet way to celebrate his birthday.

On May 7, the Friends alum took to Instagram to share several photos of herself FaceTiming the 23-year-old-filmmaker, who recently had his short Mind Made Up screen at the Portland Comedy Film Festival. Lisa captioned the post, "FaceTime with my boy to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!"

Lisa's friends gushed over Julian's birthday in the comments section. Jennifer Aniston wrote, "Happy Birthday, Juls!!! Feels like yesterday that you arrived." Courteney Cox added, "Happy Birthday Julian!!"

Courtney's former husband David Arquette, who also appeared in an episode of Friends, where he accidentally stalked Lisa's character Phoebe Buffay, wrote, "CHEESE AND CRACKERs!!!" which, as it seems, is an inside joke of some kind between the stars. Lisa wrote back, "CHEESE AND CRACKERS!!! Julian's first guffaw courtesy of the wonderful David Arquette!!"

Scandal star Dan Bucatinsky, who is also Lisa's producing partner, also made sure to send Julian some love, writing, "H a p p y!! B i r t h d a y Julian!!!" So did Whitney Cummings, who nodded to Julian's career in film. "Omg happy birthday!" she posted. "Can't wait to work for him one day!"

A fun fact about Julian for all Friends fans: Lisa was pregnant with Julian, her only child, when Phoebe was pregnant with her brother's triplets (IYKYK) during season four of the long-running sitcom. 


Lisa will join her Friends co-stars for an HBO Max reunion special later this year. Though the reunion was planned for last year, filming was pushed back due to the coronavirus.

"It's not like a scripted thing," Lisa explained on Rob Lowe's podcast Literally! With Rob Lowe in January. "We're not portraying our characters. It's us getting together, which doesn't happen a lot and has never happened in front of other people since 2004, when we stopped [filming Friends]."


Fortunately, the Central Perk pals are also happy to send Julian well wishes on his birthday.
