Lisa Kudrow has joined the rest of her “Friends” cast mates in personally remembering their pal, the late Matthew Perry.
In a heartwarming tribute on her Instagram, Kudrow touched on the highs of their friendship and the human qualities that made him such a valuable friend to her for years.
“Shot the pilot, 'Friends Like Us,' got picked up then immediately, we were at the NBC upfronts,” Kudrow wrote, in reference to the show's original title.
“Then… You suggested we play poker AND made it so much fun while we initially bonded. Thank you for that. Thank you for making me laugh so hard at something you said that my muscles ached and tears poured down my face EVERY DAY,” she wrote.
“Thank you for your open heart in a six-way relationship that required compromise. And a lot of 'talking.' Thank you for showing up at work when you weren’t well and then being completely brilliant. Thank you for the best 10 years a person gets to have,” she continued.
Kudrow concluded her caption with immense gratitude.
“Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for all I learned about GRACE and LOVE through knowing you. Thank you for the time I got to have with you, Matthew.”
Matthew Perry passed on Oct. 28, 2023.
