Salma Hayek is here to give you a glimpse of the wild rollercoaster of emotions that is Hollywood, as she fondly remembers her “Fools Rush In” co-star, Matthew Perry. This came after the shocking news of his untimely departure at the age of 54 over the weekend. I mean, can you believe it? Chandler Bing, gone at 54! Could this BE any sadder?
Sure, Matthew might be forever etched in our hearts as the beloved Chandler from “Friends,” but don’t let that distract you from the fact that he declared their collaboration his “best movie” just last year. Yes, you heard it right – Salma Hayek is now officially Matthew Perry’s Oscar, his crown jewel, his masterpiece. Move over, Academy Awards!
In a touching yet amusing post on the intergalactic grapevine, Salma shared her thoughts on the connection they shared. She wrote, “Two days ago, I woke up to the shocking news that Matthew Perry is no longer with us. It’s taken me a couple of days to process this profound sadness.” If only we could all process our Netflix binge-watching as efficiently, right?
Salma went on to wax poetic about the magic of dreams and collaboration: “There is a special bond that happens when you share dreams with someone, and together you work towards them.” Yes, we can all relate to those dreams of starring in a rom-com with a lovable goofball from our favorite TV show.
Matthew, the philosopher himself, took to his Instagram stories just last year to confess his deep love for “Fools Rush In.” Imagine, Chandler Bing having a bromance with Salma Hayek in a romantic comedy! It’s like the planets aligned for the perfect cosmic sitcom moment.
Salma continued to reminisce, saying, “Throughout the years, he and I found ourselves reminiscing about that meaningful time in our lives with a deep sense of nostalgia and gratitude.” Ah, the good old times of late ’90s romantic comedies and oversized flannel shirts. It was truly a glorious era.
In the grand finale of her heartfelt (yet still quite hilarious) tribute, Salma signed off with, “My friend, you are gone much too soon, but I will continue to cherish your silliness, your perseverance, and your lovely heart. Farewell, sweet Matthew, we will never forget you.” And with that, we say goodbye to the one and only Chandler Bing, a man who will forever remind us that sarcasm and humor can get us through even the toughest of times. Thanks for the laughs, Matthew Perry.
