Celebrities discuss the dark side of fame .
Everyone has dreamed at least once in their life that they were famous, whether for an incredible talent or for the luxurious lifestyle. But fame is far from just fortune. While some celebrities can successfully hide themselves from public view, and others might even enjoy it, there are plenty of stars who have spoken passionately about the twisted reality of everyone knowing your name, from the invasions of privacy to the complete inability to function as a normal human being. Lisa Kudrow recently appeared on the Podcrushed podcast and spoke to host Penn Badgley about struggling with body image. The actress famously starred in the series 'Friends' for a decade and revealed that she developed insecurities about her body that lasted into her forties. Kudrow compared herself to her co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox and couldn't understand why she looked so different, thinking it must be about the tailoring of her clothes for the show. However, even after adjusting the fit, she realized that she simply couldn't look like them. "I'm not trying to say I was overweight," she explained. "I was not. I just had no idea of the actual shape of my body." It was another decade before Kudrow learned to accept her body, reminding herself that she was a character actress and wasn't even interested in playing the blonde bombshell or romantic lead. "That's not a fun role for you anyway, so knock it off. It's OK, you can look fine as you are," she would tell herself. Badgley chipped in to say that feelings of "inadequacy" come up regardless of what type of actor you are. In this gallery, check out what other celebrities have had to say about the dark side of fame.
