Jennifer Aniston texted with Matthew Perry in his final hours: ‘I want people to know he was really healthy’

Jennifer Aniston was friends with Matthew Perry until the very end.

The “Murder Mystery” actress opened up about her former co-star in her first interview since his death at the age of 54 and revealed that she texted him the day he passed, on Oct. 28.

“I was literally texting with him that morning, funny Matty,” she said in an interview with Variety through tears. “He was not in pain. He wasn’t struggling. He was happy.”

For the interview, Aniston was joined by her “Morning Show” co-star Reese Witherspoon, who held her hand as she wept.

“He was happy,” she recalled. “He was healthy. He had quit smoking. He was getting in shape. He was happy — that’s all I know.”

Perry and Aniston became very close while working together — alongside David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow — on the hit NBC series, which aired from Sept. 22, 1994, to May 6, 2004.
