Julia Roberts broke her silence on Matthew Perry’s “sudden” passing as she looked back on her guest appearance on Friends.
The 56-year-old actress and the Chandler Bing star dated for three months in 1995 after her appearance on the hit NBC sitcom.
Sharing her thoughts in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Oscar winner said it’s “heartbreaking” that Matthew died so suddenly.

“I think that, you know, it just helps all of us just appreciate what we have and to keep going in a positive way as best we can.”

Julia also reminisced about her time on Friends, where she portrayed a former childhood classmate of Matthew’s character, Chandler Bing, during the interview.
She recalled: “All good thoughts and feelings. They were all so welcoming to me as just a kind of a one-off character and it was a really fun time.”
Matthew shared some details about his relationship with Julia in his 2022 memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.
He looked back on their “three-month courtship” where they sent each other letters via fax.
“I was so excited that some nights I would find myself out at some party sharing a flirtatious exchange with an attractive woman and cut the conversation short so I could race home and see if a new fax had arrived,” Matthew wrote.
