The Friends Cast Makes Final Tributes to Mathew Perry


  First, the five stars honored Perry with a joint statement, responding to the news of his death.

  “We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew,” the statement read. “We were more than just cast mates. We are a family. There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.”

  Matt Leblanc remembered Perry with a group of photos shared on Instagram.

  “It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye,” LeBlanc wrote. “The times we had together are honestly among the 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.”

  Courtney Cox remembers Perry’s sense of humor, sharing an outtake that he helped orchestrate. “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.”

  She wrote, “I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day.”

  Jennifer Aniston also pointed out Perry’s humor, writing, “As he said himself, if he didn’t hear the ‘laugh’ he thought he was going to die. His life literally depended on it. And boy did he succeed in doing just that. He made all of us laugh. And laugh hard.”

  The actress included a photo of Perry making her laugh. He once texted her with the caption, “Making you laugh just made my day. It made my day.”

  David Schwimmer paid tribute to his costar with a throwback photo taken from the show’s season 5 Thanksgiving episode, “The One With all the Thanksgivings.”

  “This photo is from one of my favorite moments with you,” he wrote referencing the flashback scene that sees the actors wearing goofy Miami Vice-style 80’s outfits. “Now it makes me smile and grieve at the same time.”

  Lisa Kudrow also shared an old image with Perry, remembering  their longtime friendship and his influence on the overall group.

  “Thank you for making me laugh so hard at something you said that my muscles ached and tears poured down my face EVERY DAY,” she wrote. “Thank you for your open heart in a six-way relationship that required compromise. And a lot of ‘talking.’ Thank you for showing up at work when you weren’t well and then being completely brilliant. Thank you for the best 10 years a person gets to have.”
