Matthew Perry’s crush on Jennifer Aniston – stolen looks, rejection and talk that saved his life

Actor Matthew Perry has died aged 54 after being found dead in his hot tub. The Friends legend – who fought a decades-long battle with

addiction – was found unconscious in his Los Angeles home yesterday. Emergency responders received a call at 4:07 p.m that the star had

suffered a cardiac arrest and arrived to find the star dead in his hot tub.

According to TMZ claims, he had just arrived back from playing a round of pickleball (a mash-up of tennis, badminton and ping-pong) and had sent his assistant out on an errand. It is that same aide who is said to have found the star unresponsive when he returned home just two hours later.

Tributes have been pouring in for the beloved star, whose passing has no doubt rocked his Friends co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt Le Blanc and Lisa Kudrow to their core. Their friendships span more than 30 years, with many having first met as budding actors living in Los Angeles.
