David Schwimmer: ‘Friends’ Fame Messed With My Private Life

“As an actor, the way I was trained, my job was to observe life and to observe other people, so I used to walk around with my head up, really engaged and watching people,” he said.

“The effect of celebrity was the absolute opposite: it made me want to hide under a baseball cap and not be seen. I realized that after a while I was no longer watching people; I was trying to hide.”

“I was trying to figure out: How do I be an actor in this new world, in this new situation? How do I do my job? That was tricky.”


David also revealed that he turned down the lead role in 1997 film Men in Black — making way for Will Smith
