Andrew Cunanan had Lisa Kudrow on his radar weeks before he killed Gianni Versace
Lisa Kudrow, a famous star in the 90s, was just sipping her glass of wine at a party when Andrew Cunanan started making conversation with her and made her increasingly uncomfortable.
Andrew Cunanan was known to brag whenever he was at a party. According to various accounts, this personality quirk got him an introduction with Gianni Versace, who became Cunanan's last victim. But Cunanan had several others on his radar as well. According to the latest account, Cunanan once approached F.R.I.E.N.D.S star Lisa Kudrow and made her feel extremely uncomfortable.
The actress's friend said Lisa was cornered at a party while she was sipping on a glass of wine and eating her salad. Cunanan bragged about how great an actor he would be. Versace's killer dropped names of celebrities he allegedly knew and according to the insider, Lisa found Cunanan to have a "wild" look in his eyes.
"I was trying to think of anything to say to get away from him. And when no one came over to rescue me, I decided to say I had to go to the bathroom — just so I had a reason to get up and get out of there," Lisa told the friend.
Radar Online reported that Cunanan arrived at the party with his boyfriend David Madson and made him click a photo with the actress. The outlet claimed that Kudrow obliged to a picture, which was later found to be missing when the police investigated Madson's death.
Writer/director Todd Haynes, who was also present at the party, remembered Cunanan approaching the actress. He said that Cunanan spotted her and didn't leave her side for the rest of the party. The serial killer reportedly grew more aggressive when she tried to make her way out of that conversation.
According to Haynes, Cunanan claimed he could afford to fly celebrities to Mexico for a weekend and said Kudrow could visit the country on his invitation. However, the actress just wanted to get away and made a hasty exit.
"The more she tried to get away, the more irritated he would become. When she finally walked away, he looked furious!" Haynes said, adding that the host of the party later apologized to Haynes for Cunanan's behavior. "The hostess later said to me, 'You have to understand, Andrew is a little nuts.'"
