Jennifer Aniston was devastated over ‘the idea of losing’ close friend Matthew Perry

Jennifer Aniston sobbed as she thought about losing her close friend Matthew Perry almost 20 years before his death.

Matthew, who starred alongside Jennifer in Friends, sadly died at his home in Los Angeles last weekend at the age of 54. The beloved actor reportedly drowned in his hot tub although his official cause of death is still unknown. On Friday afternoon, Matthew’s friends and family gathered to say their final goodbyes at his funeral in Los Angeles.

Over the years, Matthew was very open about his struggles with drug and alcohol addiction and he wrote about his experiences in his memoir Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing. He admitted his fear of “being alone” drove him to drinking and taking drugs.
