Courteney Cox on Matthew Perry: ‘I Miss You Every Day’
Courteney Cox is the latest Friends cast member to pay tribute to Matthew Perry, who died on Oct. 28 at age 54.
Cox shared a video of the classic moment on Friends in season four when Monica and Chandler spent the night together in London the night before Ross’s (David Schwimmer) ill-fated wedding to Emily (Helen Baxendale).
She captioned the video, “I am so grateful for every moment I had with you, Matty, and I miss you every day.”
Cox continued, “When you work with someone as closely as I did with Matthew, there are thousands of moments I wish I could share. For now, here’s one of my favorites. To give a little backstory, Chandler and Monica were supposed to have a one-night fling in London. But because of the audience’s reaction, it became the beginning of their love story. In this scene, before we started rolling, he whispered a funny line for me to say.”
She concluded, “He often did things like that. He was funny, and he was kind.”
Cox’s tribute to Perry comes hours after Matt LeBlanc shared a touching tribute.
LeBlanc shared a series of photos of him and Perry throughout the ten-season run of Friends. He captioned the photos on Instagram with, “Matthew. It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among the favorite times of my life.”
He continued, “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. Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love.”
LeBlanc whimsically concluded, “And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me.”
