  • Paul Rudd played Mike Hannigan Phoebe Buffay’s boyfriend and later husband on “Friends.”

Actor Paul Rudd opens up on Friday's The Graham Norton Show about the popular sitcom, which he appeared on from 2002 until the show's end in 2004, and how he nearly didn't get to keep his recurring role after accidentally hurting co-star Jennifer Aniston on set.

During his appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Paul Rudd, who played Mike Hannigan in the iconic sitcom, said his first day on set did not go as smoothly as he'd hoped, resulting in an awkward run-n with co-star Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel Green. Rudd explained that everyone was "marveling at it", and Matt LeBlanc (Joey) asked if he could try it out. Detailing all on The Graham Norton Show - set to air tonight - the 50-year-old joked that bosses looked like they wanted to "fire" him after one slip-up with the A-lister, also 50.

As for being recognized at Variety's 2019 Power of Women, she said modestly, "I don't often think of myself that way but I was very honored". "Such an inauspicious start", Rudd recalled.

"I was on the soundstage and Jennifer Aniston was crying, and I thought, 'I'm not supposed to be here, ' so to break the ice, I went over and said, 'Well, we did it, what a ride, '" he reveals. He thought to himself that he shouldn't be there, but he chose to try and break the ice.

Rudd had a recurring role as the husband of Lisa Kudrow's character, Phoebe, from 2002 until the show's end in 2004. He gushed "It was an incredible thing to be part of and the whole experience, but seems a bit surreal and a bit of a blur in my memory".

"The joke inevitably fell flat!" he added.

Paul was promoting his new Netflix series Living with Yourself on the BBC chat show, which sees him play both main characters.

The Graham Norton Show airs on BBC America, and Friends is now streaming on Netflix.
