More than two weeks after their joint statement on Matthew Perry’s sudden death, the five “Friends” stars honored the late actor in their individual social media posts.
Matt LeBlanc, Courtney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, and Liza Kudrow shared moving tributes to Perry on Instagram.
“It was an honor to share the stage with you and to call you my friend,” Matt LeBlanc wrote as he shared his “Friends” photos with Perry.
LeBlanc referred to his times with Perry as “among the favorite times of my life.”
The actor ended his tribute a la Joey Tribbiani, “And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me.”
A few hours after LeBlanc’s post, Courtney Cox described Perry as “funny” and “kind” in her tribute to her co-star and on-screen husband.
In her post, Cox shared a clip from Friends Season 4 “The One With Ross’s Wedding: Part 2,” and recalled how the viewers’ reaction paved the way for Monica and Chandler’s love story to blossom, saying that theirs was supposed to be just a one night fling.
In her Instagram post, Jennifer Aniston recalled how Matthew Perry “knew he loved to make people laugh” and that, indeed, he made them laugh hard.
Aniston shared a photo of a heartwarming message from Perry telling her how making her laugh made his day.
Aniston closed her message to the late actor with: “Rest little brother. You always made my day…”
David Schwimmer uploaded his tribute to Perry shortly after Aniston’s post. The actor thanked the late actor for “ten incredible years of laughter and creativity.”
Schwimmer remembered Perry’s ability to throw his lines at the perfect moments, always filled with unexpected wit and humor.
Schwimmer, who plays Ross on Friends, shared a photo of himself and Perry on the iconic show, referring to it as he concluded his post with: “I imagine you up there, somewhere, in the same white suit, hands in your pockets, looking around— ‘Could there BE any more clouds?'”
Lisa Kudrow thanked Perry for “showing up at work even when you weren’t well and then being completely brilliant” in her Instagram post.
Kudrow listed the things she’s thankful to the late actor for, including “the best 10 years a person gets to have.”
She closed her emotional message with “Thank you for the time I got to have with you, Matthew.”
The five Friends stars released a joint statement two days after Matthew Perry’s death and assured the public that they will say more in due time.
They were also among the family and friends who gathered for the actor’s funeral on November 3.
Matthew Perry was found unresponsive in his bathtub at his California home on October 28. He was 54.
