Jennifer Aniston Shares Co-Star Matthew Perry’s Secret Battles!
Exposing the Real Self of Chandler Bing
The famous sitcom star Jennifer Aniston, who gained notoriety as Rachel Green, talked candidly about her late co-star Matthew Perry’s inner struggles. It was revealed at the ‘Friends: The Reunion’ program that she was not aware of the “anxiety and self-torture” that actor Tyler Perry endured in order to play Chandler Bing.
According to Jennifer Aniston, “Cherry’s exterior concealed a world of anxiety and self-torture.”
The Importance of a Joke
Aniston claimed that Perry was very critical of himself when it came to pulling a joke. He threatened to “go into convulsions” if the audience didn’t laugh as expected. During the reunion, Perry acknowledged, “To me, I felt like I was going to die if they didn’t laugh.” It’s undoubtedly unhealthy.
“You didn’t tell us that then,” Phoebe Buffay from the television series Lisa Kudrow said, expressing her amazement at Perry’s admissions during the reunion.
Unrequited Love and Interaction on Screen
Aniston also discussed her personal life and her previous love relationship with “Friends” co-star David Schwimmer in another section of her interview on the Today show. Schwimmer played Ross Geller.
“I believe there was a connection to unfulfilled love. I still adore David as much as I did back then, Aniston said.
A Look Into Matthew Perry’s Difficult History
Perry had also disclosed to the public his battles with drug addiction. He had an almost fatal opioid overdose at the age of 49, which caused his colon to explode. Perry bucked the odds and started his recovery path, despite the doctors’ 2% survival estimate.
Perry remarked, “I had too much respect for my co-stars to ever come to set wasted.”
He later acknowledged that the emotional toll his drug use took on his life prevented him from even watching Friends repeats.
Considering Complicated Lives and Legacies
Following Matthew Perry’s sudden passing, both co-stars and fans have been considering the depths of the man behind the humor. The disclosures made by Aniston and Perry themselves serve as moving reminders that sometimes the people who offer us the greatest happiness are also engaged in struggles we are unaware of.
