The world continues to mourn the loss of Matthew Perry, renowned for his portrayal of Chandler Bing in the beloved TV sitcom 'Friends.' Perry passed away on October 28, leaving fans and colleagues in grief.

Hollywood luminary Julia Roberts recently opened up about the heartbreaking loss of her ex and co-star, Matthew Perry. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Roberts expressed sorrow over the untimely death, emphasizing the need for everyone to appreciate life and strive for positivity in the face of such tragedies.

Matthew Perry and Julia Roberts shared a romantic history, a revelation Perry unveiled in his memoir titled "Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing," published last year. Perry disclosed that the two had a brief romantic involvement, spanning three months around the time of Roberts' guest appearance on 'Friends' in 1996. In that episode, Roberts played a childhood classmate of Perry's character, Chandler Bing. Reflecting on her time on the show, Roberts recalled it with "all good thoughts and feelings," emphasizing the warm welcome she received from the cast.

Perry's memoir provides intimate insights into their relationship. Perry detailed how he eagerly expressed his excitement about Roberts joining the show by sending her three dozen red roses along with a card. He anxiously awaited her responses, going as far as sitting by his fax machine multiple times a day just to receive her messages. Remarkably, their romantic involvement had already commenced before they even filmed her episode on 'Friends.'

However, the love story took an unexpected turn. Perry shared that two months later, he found himself single again, revealing the challenges he faced while dating the "beautiful and brilliant" Julia Roberts. He admitted to constant uncertainty, fearing that Roberts would end the relationship, believing he was not enough and feeling broken and unlovable. While the exact reason for their breakup remains unclear, Perry attributed it, in part, to the difficulties of dating someone of Roberts' immense fame.

In her latest film, 'Leave the World Behind,' Julia Roberts subtly weaves in references to 'Friends.' Discussing the film, she highlighted the universal need for pop culture comforts, identifying her own solace in shows like "America’s Funniest Home Videos." She emphasized the personal and diverse nature of these comforting elements, providing solace at the end of each day.

The film features Julia Roberts alongside Mahershala Ali and Ethan Hawke, offering audiences a unique cinematic experience. As Hollywood grapples with the loss of Matthew Perry, his co-stars and friends, like Julia Roberts, reflect on cherished memories and the impact of his legacy in the world of entertainment.
