Matthew Perry’s heartbroken Friends co-stars pictured consoling each other at actor’s home

Matthew Perry’s Friends co-stars embraced one another at the ғᴜɴᴇʀᴀʟ of the late Chandler Bing actor 

Matthew Perry’s Friends co-stars were seen consoling each other at the beloved actor’s ғᴜɴᴇʀᴀʟ on Friday afternoon.

The Chandler Bing actor, 54, who was famed for his role in US sitcom Friends, was found dead in his Los Angeles home. The beloved actor was found after he reportedly drowned in his hot tub.

Less than one week after his ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ came to light, the actor’s ғᴜɴᴇʀᴀʟtook place in LA on Friday, with the venue for the service held opposite where Friends was filmed for a decade at Warner Brothers studios. Attended by his loved ones, it is reported that only close friends and family spoke at the service, with an emotional song played at the end. 

As well as his emotional parents, the co-stars that Matthew starred alongside in the sitcom Friends, were also in attendance at his farewell. Lisa Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, and Courteney Cox were seen at the send-off, with fellow co-stars David Schwimmer and Matt Le Blanc also joining the group later on, according to reports.

The three women and David arrived as a quartet at the ғᴜɴᴇʀᴀʟ, with the four pals all dressed in black. Speaking to the Daily Mail, a source revealed: “There was not a dry eye in there. There were a lot of tears and laughter. Only close friends and family spoke.”

In snaps seen above and below, Jennifer, Matt, Courtney, and David all shared an emotional hug. Embracing and consoling one another, the pals were bidding a final goodbye to their ‘friend’ Matthew, whom they starred alongside for a decade before reuniting again for the reunion show a couple of years ago.

The service reportedly ended with an emotional song, which was a rendition of Peter Gabriel song Don’t Give Up, including the line: “No fight left or so it seems, I am a man whose dreams have all deserted, I’ve changed my face, I’ve changed my name, But no one wants you when you lose.”. The lyrics could be seen as a touching comment on Perry’s fight to beat his drug and alcohol addiction – of which he was open about and revealed in detail in his memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.

As well as his former co-stars, Matthew’s father John Bennett Perry, his stepfather, Keith Morrison, and his mother Suzanne were among the guests at the emotional farewell. Matthew’s mother could be seen wearing a floral dress that grazed her ankles. She accessorised with a short black jacket, black boots and her blonde hair down and framing her face. Suzanne appeared downcast as she was photographed at her son’s ғᴜɴᴇʀᴀʟ.

The gathering comes after Matthew’s former co-stars came together to share an emotional tribute following his ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ. “We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family,” they said in a statement.

In the tribute, which was shared with US magazine People, they continued: “There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss. In time we will say more, as and when we are able,” they continued. “For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world.”


In a statement, Matthew’s family also wrote: “We are heartbroken by the tragic loss of our beloved son and brother. Matthew brought so much joy to the world, both as an actor and a friend. You all meant so much to him and we appreciate the tremendous outpouring of love.”
