The actor’s ex-fiancee Matthew PerryMolly Hurwitz, paid tribute to the “Friends” star, who died last Saturday (28), saying, in an Instagram post, that the “respect and appreciation of humor” that they both shared had close together.
The couple, who started dating in 2018, got engaged in November 2020. However, they called off their engagement a few months later in June 2021. “Sometimes things just don’t work out and this one is one of them,” the actor said in a statement at the time.
In the message, which features a silhouette of Perry on his back looking out at the landscape of a snowy European city, the literary director reveals that “no one in my adult life has had a more profound impact on me.” She also expressed “tremendous gratitude” for the time they spent together and for everything she learned from the relationship.
“He would love for the world to talk about his talent. And he was really, really talented. With the “Friends” reunion approaching, we rewatched the series together. ‘Fuck, I was so good! Did you see what I did there? We rewind and study the scenes,” she wrote, citing the outpouring of love from fans and friends of the sitcom star following news of his passing.
Molly then explained how important the trait of humor was to both of them. “Our respect and appreciation of humor is something that connects us. Being with him as he rediscovered his genius was magical.
Although she spoke of the deep impact and gratitude of their relationship, she also mentioned that she knew him in a different way and knew he could be complicated.
“Even though I loved him more deeply than I could understand, he was complicated and caused pain like I had never known.”
“Matty, I feel relieved that you are at peace,” Matthew Perry’s ex-fiancée concluded the post.
“Friends” star Chandler Bing was found unconscious in a hot tub when emergency crews were called to his Los Angeles home on Oct. 28. The cause of death will still require further investigative measures by medical authorities.
