The one where they bid adieu
After Matt LeBlanc and Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry’s three other Friends co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer shared their fond memories with the actor on their personal social media pages. Perry died at the age of 54 on October 30 at his Pacific Palisades home here.
“Oh boy, this one has cut deep,” Aniston, 54, began in an Instagram post. “We all experience loss at some point in our lives. Loss of life or loss of love. Being able to really sit in this grief allows you to feel the moments of joy and gratitude for having loved someone that deep. And we loved him deeply. He was part of our DNA. We were always the six of us,” she wrote, calling the Friends cast as a “chosen family”.
“For Matty, he knew he loved to make people laugh. As he said himself, if he didn’t hear the ‘laugh’ he thought he was going to die. His life literally depended on it. And boy did he succeed in doing just that. He made all of us laugh. And laugh hard,” she added. Kudrow, in an emotional post, said she and Perry initially bonded over a “fun” game of poker. “Thank you for making me laugh so hard at something you said, that my muscles ached, and tears poured down my face every day. Thank you for your open heart in a six way relationship that required compromise. Thank you for showing up at work when you weren’t well and then, being completely brilliant. Thank you for the best 10 years a person gets to have,” she wrote.
Schwimmer thanked Perry for 10 “incredible years of laughter and creativity”. “I will never forget your impeccable comic timing and delivery. You could take a straight line of dialogue and bend it to your will, resulting in something so entirely original and unexpectedly funny it still astonishes.”
Perry, who had detailed his life-long struggle with alcohol and drug addiction in his 2022 memoir, was found unresponsive in his hot tub.
