’Friends’ Star Courteney Cox Pens Tribute to Matthew Perry

’Friends’ Star Courteney Cox Pens Tribute to Matthew Perry

Friends star Courteney Cox has broken her silence following the sudden death of her costar Matthew Perry last month.

Cox and Perry played husband and wife “Monica” and “Chandler” on the hit sitcom from 1994 to 2004. The two had amazing chemistry together and forced the writers to keep them together after their first romantic encounter on the show.

Cox posted this statement on her Instagram earlier today…

“I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day. When you work with someone as closely as I did with Matthew, there are thousands of moments I wish I could share. For now, here’s one of my favorites.”

“To give a little backstory, Chandler and Monica were supposed to have a one-night fling in London. But because of the audience’s reaction, it became the beginning of their love story. In this scene, before we started rolling, he whispered a funny line for me to say. He often did things like that. He was funny and he was kind,” Cox continued.

Like Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc Also Posted a Tribute Online

Courteney Cox isn’t the only Friends star to post about Matthew Perry on Instagram today. Matt LeBlanc, best remembered for starring as “Joey” on the show, posted his fondest memories of Perry as well.

“Matthew,” LeBlanc began in an Instagram post. “It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among my favorite times of my life.”

“It was an honor to share the stage with you and to call you my friend. I will always smile when I think of you and I’ll never forget you. Never. Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love.”

“And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me,” LeBlanc continued.
