The ‘Friends’ Creators Reflect on Their Last Chat with Matthew Perry


‘Friends’ creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane revealed that Matthew Perry was “happy and joyful” just two weeks before his death.

The TV duo reflected on their last conversation with the late actor during a preview of Wednesday’s episode of the “Today” show.

“It was awesome,” Kauffman recalled to Hoda Kotb.

“He was happy and joyful. He didn’t seem burdened by anything. He was in a really good position, which is why it seems so unfair.

Perry played Chandler Bing on the hit television series from 1994 to 2004.

He starred alongside Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox and Matt LeBlanc, who mourned their beloved co-star on Monday.

“We are all completely devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just castmates. We are family,” the sitcom stars wrote in a statement to People on Monday.

“In time we will say more, as much as we can. For now, our thoughts and love are with Matty’s family, his friends and all those who loved him around the world.

Perry died Saturday of an apparent drowning. He was 54 years old.

“He was happy and joyful. He didn’t seem burdened by anything. He was in a really good position, which is why it seems so unfair,” Kauffman recalled.

The “Fools Rush In” star was pronounced dead shortly after being found unresponsive in his hot tub at his Los Angeles home.

He was discovered around 4 p.m. by his assistant who was running an errand for the actor two hours before.

Although Perry had several prescription medications in the house, there were no illegal substances on the premises, according to TMZ.

Perry was also remembered by his “Friends” co-stars on Monday.

Perry — who was a recovering drug addict — praised his “Friends” castmates — particularly Aniston — in his memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” released in November 2022.

Around that time, he opened up about his friendship with the “Morning Show” star, expressing gratitude for her concern amid his struggles with sobriety.

While speaking to Diane Sawyer, he recalled Aniston confronting him about his drug and alcohol use, saying, “We know you drink.” »

“Imagine how scary that moment was,” he said, adding that “she was the one who reached out the most.” I’m really grateful to him.

In fact, Aniston previously expressed emotion about “losing” Perry in an interview with Sawyer in 2004.

“He had a hard time and we didn’t know it,” she said at the time through tears. “We were not equipped to deal with it. No one had ever faced this.
