Actress LISA KUDROW has confessed to undergoing a nose job at the tender age of 16.
The former Friends star, 50, reveals the rhinoplasty was a necessary procedure because it helped to transform her "hideous" looks and aid her transition to a new school.
She tells America's The Saturday Evening Post publication, "That (operation) was life altering. I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous. I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn't know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change."
The plastic surgery came after a tough time in Kudrow's life, when she learned just how mean kids could be - after she was ditched by her two best friends.
She explains, "That happened in seventh grade when we moved from sixth grade to a new school. So they knew some people, and I didn't. Eventually they just got tired of me being a tag-along. They said, 'For your own good, you need to see what would happen if we weren't here.' It was really brutal. Very hard.
"It was just mean. And all of junior high felt upside down to me. It was not, like, the nice people who were popular; it wasn't the most entertaining people - it was the meanest people who were popular."
