Jennifer Aniston recalls last conversation with ‘Friends’ co-star Matthew Perry: ‘He was happy’

Jennifer Aniston is looking back on her last conversation with “Friends” co-star Matthew Perry.

Aniston reflected on Perry during a Variety interview with her “The Morning Show” co-star Reese Witherspoon published Monday. Aniston

revealed the late actor was doing well in his personal life before his death.

“He was happy. He was healthy,” Aniston said. “He had quit smoking. He was getting in shape. He was happy — that’s all I know. I was literally texting with him that morning, funny Matty. He was not in pain. He wasn’t struggling.”

Perry was open about his battle with alcohol and drugs, which he chronicled in his 2022 memoir “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.” He wrote with candor and compassion and showed his dedication to continue fighting a near-fatal battle.

“It’s so beautiful,” said Aniston of the tributes. “I hope he can know that he was loved in a way he never thought he was.”

Perry was found dead on Oct. 28 in a jacuzzi at his Los Angeles home. The cause of death has yet to be determined.

Aniston paid tribute to Perry in an Instagram post last month, remembering the actor as someone who “knew he loved to make people laugh.”
