Jennifer Aniston’s candid comments about Matthew Perry’s struggles before his death

Friends star Jennifer Aniston says she didn’t know about the amount of “anxiety and self-torture” Matthew Perry put himself through under

the facade of Chandler Bing.

The 54-year-old actress who played the rich-girl-turned-responsible-adult Rachel Green in the sitcom admitted that the Friends reunion shows revealed certain revelations she had no idea about. However, the new info does bridge some gaps.

The star of Murder Mystery said on the Today show: “I didn’t understand the level of anxiety and self-torture [that] was put on Matthew Perry, if he didn’t get that laugh, and the devastation that he felt.” When the ensemble got back together for the first time in 17 years, the 54-year-old actor who portrayed Chandler Bing in the sitcom disclosed the pressures he put himself through.
