You know him best for playing Ross on Friends but in the ’90s David Schwimmer did have a lot of them.
He recently revealed on the Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter Podcast, that all that fame made it difficult to practice his craft.
“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. The effect of celebrity was the absolute opposite: It made me want to hide under a baseball cap and not be seen. And I realized after a while that I was no longer watching people; I was trying to hide. So 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.”
