Guess what? Julia Roberts just spilled the beans in the quirkiest way possible about the demise of Matthew Perry at the tender age of 54. Yep, you heard it right – our beloved Chandler Bing from Friends kicked the bucket, and Julia’s got some words to share.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, the 56-year-old Academy Award-winning actress made a cameo on Friends back in the ’90s. According to Matthew’s memoir, these two had a brief fling that lasted a whopping three months. Three whole months, people!
Now, let’s talk about Matthew’s untimely exit. Julia, in her own unique way, spilled the tea to ET, saying, “The sudden passing of anybody so young is heartbreaking. I think that, you know, it just helps all of us just appreciate what we have and to keep going in a positive way as best we can.” Well, Julia, you’ve got a way with words!
And hold on to your hats because Matthew Perry wasn’t just a funny guy on screen; he was a romantic genius off-screen too. In his memoir, he spills the deets about sending Julia three dozen red roses. The card, you ask? “The only thing more exciting than the prospect of you doing the show is that I finally have an excuse to send you flowers.” Smooth move, Chandler. Smooth move.
Why did they call it quits, you wonder? According to Matthew, dating Julia Roberts was like juggling flaming torches while riding a unicycle. He spilled, “Dating Julia Roberts had been too much for me. I had been constantly certain that she was going to break up with me. Why would she not? I was not enough; I could never be enough; I was broken, bent, unlovable.”
The tragicomedy of Julia Roberts, Matthew Perry, and a bouquet of roses. Life’s short, love’s complicated, and Friends will never be the same.
