Everyone knows Matthew Perry for one reason..
Remember Chandler Bing in Friends!
Friends is one of the most successful shows of all time…
Back in 1994, we were first introduced to the Friends cast which included Ross (David Schwimmer), Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Monica, (Courteney Cox), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey (Matt LeBlanc)
An instantaneous success.
The sitcom was created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, which follows friends in their late twenties who live in the same New York apartment block.
The final episode aired in September 2004…
It was an emotional rollercoaster, when the show came to an end. Monica and Chandler were starting a family, Phoebe was newly married, Rachel had a new job in Paris… as they were about to embark on separate journeys.
Rachel didn’t get on the plane!
Ross and Rachel reunited after putting their differences aside. But what happened to them after, did Monica and Chandler stay together or did Joey ever make it in the acting world.
There was a few low-key reunions over the years
But apart from the occasional reunion on talk shows, fans have had their fair share of disappointments when it comes to waiting for a Friends reunion.
Finally last February we received the news we had all been waiting for.
All of the cast shared a picture on Instagram to confirm news of a reunion which was scheduled to air in May 2020 but was called off due to the pandemic.
As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait!
On May 27th the reunion finally aired on HBO Max.
Every Friends fan around the world were beyond excited.
The episode was an emotional rollercoaster.
Each of them were so overwhelmed to be back in the exact same set after so many years.
This was actually the first time that all five of the stars had been back in the same room together in seventeen years.
It was evident to viewers that their bond remains strong.
Even their chemistry was totally obvious.
Fans quickly picked up on something specific
Which was Matthew Perry’s wellbeing.
Over the years Matthew has had many personal issues.
Including battles with addiction and depression which he struggled with while filming the early seasons of Friends.
Fans noticed during the reunion that the actor was rather quiet in comparison to the rest of the gang…
And that when he did speak, he did so with slurred speech.
Matthew’s slurred speech was quickly explained, however.
A source said:
“Matthew turned up at the reunion and members of his team said he had an emergency tooth procedure that day. This was said to impact his wellbeing and also how he was feeling. Obviously, no one wants to film after a procedure, but it happened. The feeling was one of huge sympathy for Matthew, especially in recent days, given how people reacted online.”
It’s a pity that Matthew wasn’t feeling great during the filming of the reunion…
And now, a week on, it seems as if even more bad luck is on the horizon for the actor.
The Friends star announced earlier today some devastating news…
Matthew has announced his relationship with Molly has now come to an end.
The actor said in a statement:
“Sometimes things just don’t work out and this is one of them. I wish Molly the best.”
The couple apparently began dating in 2018…
They got engaged in November 2020.
“I decided to get engaged,” Matthew explained
“Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time.”
We hope Matthew and Molly are coping during this difficult period!
