Matthew Perry’s death has deeply shocked around the globe, showing the strong emotional attachment that people hold to the beloved series Friends and its ensemble of actors. The news sparked an outpouring of tributes and reflections, showcasing how deeply the show has impacted its audience over the years.

Jennifer Aniston Is Struggling to Move On from Matthew Perry’s Tragic Death

Months after the tragic passing of her Friends co-star, Matthew Perry, Jennifer Aniston is finding it difficult to move forward. According to Closer Weekly, Aniston and Perry had a close relationship, intensifying her struggle to come to terms with his death.

Courteney Cox, who also starred in the hit sitcom alongside Aniston and Perry, has stepped up to support the 55-year-old during this challenging time. The scooper revealed,

A lot of people don’t realize how close Jen and Matthew were because she didn’t broadcast how much she stuck by him. She was one of the only people that would still reach out to him even when he was deep in the grip of his addiction and pushing everyone away.

Even though it’s been more than six months since he died, it really hasn’t made it any easier for her, she keeps tearing up and asking herself how it happened.

Having first forged their friendship on the popular ’90s sitcom, the actors had maintained a close bond over the years. Matthew Perry had openly expressed his admiration for Jennifer Aniston, acknowledging her unwavering support and significant presence in his life. This heartfelt acknowledgment came just a year prior to Perry’s untimely passing.

Jennifer Aniston’s Tribute to Matthew Perry

Following Matthew Perry’s tragic passing from an apparent drowning on October 28, Jennifer Aniston shared a heartfelt tribute on Instagram. She shared a photo of herself and Perry on set, accompanied by a loving text exchange that captured their special bond.

Alongside these memories, she included a scene from the show’s 2004 finale, where their characters, Rachel Green and Chandler Bing, shared a touching moment expressing their deep affection for each other. This tribute not only celebrated Perry’s enduring legacy but also honored their friendship that spanned decades both on-screen and off. She wrote,

Oh boy this one has cut deep … Having to say goodbye to our Matty has been an insane wave of emotions that I’ve never experienced before. We all experience loss at some point in our lives. Loss of life or loss of love. Being able to really SIT in this grief allows you to feel the moments of joy and gratitude for having loved someone that deep. And we loved him deeply. He was such a part of our DNA

She further continued,

We were always the 6 of us. This was a chosen family that forever changed the course of who we were and what our path was going to be. For Matty, he KNEW he loved to make people laugh. As he said himself, if he didn’t hear the ‘laugh’ he thought he was going to die. His life literally depended on it. And boy did he succeed in doing just that. He made all of us laugh. And laugh hard.

It is truly hard to move on from a loss such as this. However, Aniston has the whole Friends crew helping her get through this together. Although the world can’t forget him, Matthew Perry’s memory lives on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
