Jennifer Aniston shares text from Matthew Perry as co-stars pay tribute to actor

Aniston, who played Rachel Green in the sitcom, said Perry’s death “cut deep” and that she “loved him deeply”. Meanwhile, Lisa Kudrow thanked him “for the best 10 years a person gets to have”.

“Being able to really SIT in this grief allows you to feel the moments of joy and gratitude for having loved someone that deep. And we loved him deeply. He was such a part of our DNA. We were always the six of us.”

Aniston said her “chosen family” had “forever changed the course of who we were and what our path was going to be”.

She said she had been poring over their text exchanges in the days since Perry’s death, “laughing and crying then laughing again”.
