Lisa Kudrow on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'Lisa Kudrow isn't an idiot, but she used to play one on TV. She spoke Friday on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated) about returning to her alma matter Vassar College to give the school's commencement address last year, despite the fact that her most well-known character, Phoebe from 'Friends,' may not be the best embodiment of a Vassar education.

"I apologized to all the parents in the audience that you have this person who played who played an idiot on a sitcom sending your children into their future," said Kudrow. Kelly Ripa pointed out that it takes a smart person to play an idiot convincingly, and Kudrow agreed.


She also told the Vassar crowd to keep faith in their dreams despite devastating disappointments, because everything happens for a reason. "As long as we don't know whether that's true or not, we might as well," she joked. That's one way to look at it.
