Lisa Kudrow was blunt on Friday when discussing the hacked emails of Sony execs, and it boiled down to this: They should have known better.

Kudrow, star of HBO’s "The Comeback," shared her views on HuffPost Live Friday, telling host Roy Sekoff, "How come I know you don’t write anything you don’t want broadcast? How come I know that? Who’s advising people? It doesn’t matter how many times it says this is confidential, meant for the sender and the recipient."

"I have almost no opinions anymore," Kudrow added, drawing laughter.

Kudrow went on to say that there are close friends you can trust and show your vulnerable side to.

"I think we need to have more boundaries and accountability and a little personal responsibility for what we say," she told Sekoff.

The leak of the Sony emails, orchestrated by a group of hackers that call themselves the Guardians of Peace, has been embarrassing for the company. Headlines around the country have focused on information in the hacks, from Angelina Jolie being called a "spoiled brat" to the fact that Jennifer Lawrence got paid less than her male co-stars for "American Hustle."

In Sunday's New York Times, Aaron Sorkin took the media to task for publicizing the private information revealed by the Sony hackers.

"I understand that news outlets routinely use stolen information. That’s how we got the Pentagon Papers, to use an oft-used argument. But there is nothing in these documents remotely rising to the level of public interest of the information found in the Pentagon Papers," the screenwriter wrote.

Sorkin challenged the view that the information is "newsworthy," saying that the media carried out the wishes of a group of people who threatened to "murder families and who so far have done everything they’ve threatened to do."
