Debra Messing Rocked 'The Rachel' from 'Friends' Before She Was on 'Will & Grace'

Debra Messing stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday (February 11) and dished about how the producers of her 1995 sitcom Ned and Stacey convinced her to get Jennifer Aniston‘s haircut in Friends.

“It was a show for two seasons. I had just come from New York, I had never done a TV show before and it was rolling along. There was another show on at the time called Friends that was doing a little better then us,” the 50-year-old actress recalled.

“One day the producers come up to me and they say, ‘ok, the reason why Friends is so successful is because of Jennifer Aniston’s hair. So they brought her hairdresser and made him cut my hair into ‘the Rachel’. The thing is, he didn’t teach anybody how to blow-dry it. I had very very curly hair,” Debra continued. “Literally three people quit because they couldn’t straighten my hair.”

Debra also talked about her son’s lack of interest in her work, tackling social and political issues on Will & Grace and all the injuries she’s sustained from her pratfalls on the show – Watch more after the cut!
