Days after Matthew Perry was laid to rest with a private funeral in Los Angeles, his FRIENDS co-star Courteney Cox shared a heartfelt post for remembering him on social media.
Los Angeles: Days after the death of her FRIENDS co-star, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox took to social media to put her heart down in a sincere tribute to the actor. Matthew, lovingly called Matty by his friends and family members, died at his house in Los Angeles last month. He was best known for living a victorious life against his addiction to drugs, and for his memorable performance in the world-renowned sitcom FRIENDS in which he played the role of Chandler Bing.
Courteney, who played Monica in the series, his friend-turned-spouse, shared a blooper scene on social media as she remembered her dearest Matty and all the things he would do to make her laugh. Monica and Chandler, popularly known as Mondler, made a lovely couple in the show. In fact, the audience’s reaction to their chemistry was so strong that what was conceptualised as a one-night fling between the two had to be written like a legit relationship later. Courteney talked about the same chemistry in her heartfelt post for Matthew and wrote, “To give a little backstory, Chandler and Monica were supposed to have a one-night fling in London. But because of the audience’s reaction, it became the beginning of their love story (sic).”

A part of his post read, “It was an honor to share the stage with you and to call you my friend. I will always smile when I think of you and I’ll never forget you. Never.
Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love. And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me (sic).”
