Jennifer Aniston Describes Matthew Perry’s Final Days Before His Death: ‘He Was Really Healthy’

“I want people to know he was really healthy, and getting healthy,” Jennifer pointed out. “He was on a pursuit. He worked so hard. He really was dealt a tough one. I miss him dearly. We all do. Boy, he made us laugh really hard.” 

She insisted that the 17 Again actor “was happy. He was healthy. He had quit smoking. He was getting in shape” and that was “all [she knows].” Jennifer also revealed that she “was literally texting with him that morning, funny Matty. He was not in pain. He wasn’t struggling. He was happy.”

Matthew was found dead in a hot tub at his home in Pacific Palisades, California, on October 28. After he was discovered, fans and loved ones of the Primetime Emmy Award winner were heartbroken over his death. Fan-made memorials were created outside of his Los Angeles home and near the New York City building that was used as the exterior of Monica’s apartment in Friends. Mourners left flowers and cards for the late actor to honor him.
