Who is Michel Stern?

The Wealth of Michel Stern

How rich is Michel Stern? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $1.1 million, mostly earned through success in the advertising industry. He also apparently has access to a considerable fortune through his association to his wife Lisa, who has a net worth estimated by authoritative sources at over $70 million. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Career

There is very little information available about Michel’s early life, except that he is a native of France and decided to move to the United States when he was still young to pursue work, which he eventually found in the advertising industry, which he scaled up the ladder to eventually find success.

Meeting and Dating Lisa Kudrow

According to reports, the story goes that Stern met Lisa in the 1980s when he had just moved to the US and still didn’t know many people. He was actually dating her French roommate, and met Lisa while he went to the apartment to pick up Lisa’s friend for a date. She was apparently instantly attracted, but didn’t show any signs of that as he was dating her friend. That relationship didn’t last long, however, but it wasn’t until six years later that Lisa and Stern would meet again at her friend’s birthday party, and became friends which eventually lead to their relationship. They were already together when Lisa became a part of the soon to be hit, the NBC series “Friends” which gained a lot of traction after going to air in 1994. A year after the show started, the two decided to marry – he was already 37 years old, and she was 31 when the two married. The relationship continued well, and Lisa found popularity internationally too.

Child and Controversy

In 1997 Kudrow became pregnant with Michel’s son, but instead of deciding to take off time from the show, “Friends” decided to integrate her pregnancy into the show as a subplot, through to the birth in mid-1998. There were a lot of rumors flying around the Lisa was actually a virgin before marriage since she made comments in “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” that she liked the idea, but she eventually shut down the rumors in 2011. She returned to “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and cleared the air, saying that in the past, she also had other lovers.

One of her previous relationships was with another famous comedian named Conan O’Brien, a host, writer, and producer, best known for also hosting his own late night show “Conan” as a part of the TBS channel. Michel continued to enjoy success with his wife as the years passed, as she had an award winning career with numerous nominations throughout the 1990s and the 2000s. She went on to produce other shows, such as “The Comeback”, and has made guest appearances in shows such as “Scandal” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”. Her success in television later translated to more success in films, as she appeared in “The Boss Baby”, “Neighbors”, “Easy A”, and “PS I Love You”.

Is Michel Stern on Social Media?

One of the reasons there is very little information on Michel is because he does not maintain any personal accounts on any of the major social media websites, such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. A few pictures that are seen of him online are taken when he joined his wife at various red carpet events. There are also videos of them appearing together with their son at events, some of which have been posted online as a part of the website YouTube.

On the other hand, Lisa maintains a strong online presence through social media, as is common with numerous entertainment personalities. She maintains a Twitter account which promotes a lot of her recent work, including her various television appearances; her husband however, rarely appears in any of her posts. The same can be said of her Instagram account, which mainly promotes her recent work and events. She also posts comedy content from time to time. Both of her pages are very active as she continues to go further in her career, and promote her work.
