While tearing up, Aniston expressed on the The Morning Show with co-star Reese Witherspoon:
“He was happy. He was healthy. He had quit smoking. He was getting in shape. He was happy — that’s all I know.
“I was literally texting with him that morning, funny Matty. He was not in pain. He wasn’t struggling. He was happy.”
“I want people to know he was really healthy, and getting healthy. He was on a pursuit. He worked so hard. He really was dealt a tough one. I miss him dearly. We all do. Boy, he made us laugh really hard.”
Matthew Perry, the well-known actor famous for his role as Chandler Bing in the popular TV show Friends, passed away at the age of 54 at his residence in Los Angeles, California on October 28. Perry shocked the world when he died from an apparent drowning.
The beloved actors from Friends, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, and Aniston expressed their deep sorrow and pain following the tragic passing of their co-star. Additionally, a foundation was founded in Perry’s name to help others struggling with addiction. Aniston said:
“I hope he can know that he was loved in a way he never thought he was.”
While Witherspoon, who appeared on two episodes of Friends in 2000, honored the entire cast of the hit sitcom. She said:
“You all were so close. It’s incredible what was born of those friendships, and how you guys have always taken care of each other for years and years. It’s really beautiful and set standards for our business, as well, with the way you respected each other.
“I feel lucky that I got to be on that show and I walked in like Alice in Wonderland, watching the most popular cast do this whole thing. I remember going home and going, oh, they’re in another league. They’re on another planet on comedy levels that I’ve never seen my entire life, pivoting on a dime and working on each other’s energy and it was extraordinary.”
