Advertising, which is an art of suggesting to society what is good for them from a variety of options, can be tricky as people tend to have their preferences for one reason or the other. The consumer market is a hard sea to sail in and as an advert guy, you must possess the necessary skills to pull people in their droves to purchase the products you put out. Michel Stern has over the years proven to be very successful at this as multi-million and billion-dollar companies have relied on him to get business done.

But while Stern has been able to hold his own in his profession, the advertising executive owes his popularity to being the husband of Hollywood sweetheart, Lisa Kudrow, who is popularly known as Phoebe Buffay due to her role in the sitcom, Friends. Learn more about Stern’s life, including how he was able to win the heart of the multiple award-winning actress and comedian.

Michel Stern At A Glance


What We Know About Michel Stern’s Origin and Works

Michel Stern is one of those people who not much is known about their early years. There is so much mystery to the man that whatever is in the public domain about him are just tidbits of what has been let out by his very popular wife.

It is understood that Stern was born in 1958 in France. He spent all of his childhood and teenage years in the European country before moving to the U.S. to pursue a career in advertising. He was said to have first struggled to make it in the advertising business before later establishing himself to become very successful at it and rising to the level of an executive. But despite the success he had achieved, Stern maintained a relatively low profile and just went about his business. It was not until his path crossed with Lisa Kudrow that the public began to get interested in who he was and what he did for a living.

How He Met Lisa Kudrow

Michel Stern and his wife Lisa Kudrow have quite an interesting love story unless you are Lisa’s roommate who Stern was said to have been dating at the time he first came across his future wife.

The two met in the late 1980s through the unnamed roommate. The then-upcoming actress, who was said to have been able to speak some French and had an affinity for people from France, was attracted to the French man who also enjoyed his short exchange with his girlfriend’s roommate. Nothing subsequently occurred between the pair as Stern would later break up with his girlfriend and not come in contact with Lisa again.

As faith would have it, however, the paths of the two would go-on to cross a few years later where they managed to start a friendship that led to them deciding to spend the rest of their lives together.

Interesting Details About Their Marriage

Lisa Kudrow tied the knot with her husband on the 27th of May, 1995, in Malibu, California. This happened right around the time she was becoming famous for playing the Phoebe character in Friends (1994-2004) which has since been recognized as one of the greatest female characters in American television.

Michel Stern was 37 years old at the time of him marrying Kudrow who was 31. A few years after they exchanged marital vows, the couple welcomed a child to the world. Lisa gave birth to a son named Julian Murray Stern on the 7th of May 1998. She did not have to take so much time away from the television show as her pregnancy was written into the show that was in its fourth season at the time. Her character was helping out her younger half-brother and his wife by agreeing to become a surrogate mother. She was said to have been expecting triplets.

While Lisa was going through all of this, Stern was very supportive although he still made sure to stay away from the spotlight. The pair have since then continued to grow ever closer together, setting an example for other couples in Hollywood as they have been together for over two decades.

His Son Wanted to Be an Only Child and has Chosen to Follow in His Footsteps

While growing up, Michel Stern’s son Julian was reportedly outspoken about his desire not to have siblings. He was said to have always told his parents he did not want a brother or sister whenever they came across other children. As things would pan out, he remained an only child and has been a darling to his parents.

The young man, who many have said has a striking resemblance with Friends actor David Schwimmer, has further opted to not pursue a career as an actor. Julian instead chooses to spend time with his father to learn more about the advertising business and has at some point in time served him as an assistant.
