From Yasmine Bleeth to Julia Roberts: A look at Matthew Perry's dating history as 'Friends' star completes memoir
'So much has been written about me in the past, I thought it was time people heard from me,' Perry said after completing his memoir 'Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing'
Very few shows get to remain beloved by all and 'Friends' happens to be one of them. The NBC show lasted 10 seasons, airing from 1994 to 2004, and continues to be considered the world's favorite sitcom.
The sitcom propelled all of its core cast members, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, to global fame and now, one of them has decided to put out a book that will take readers "behind the scenes onto the soundstage of the most successful sitcom of all time while opening up about his private struggles with addiction." Penned by Matthew Perry, who played Chandler Bing, the memoir is being published by Flatiron Books. Calling it "an extraordinary story that only he (Perry) could tell," Flatiron says the memoir, titled 'Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing', is an "unflinchingly honest, moving, and hilarious" book "that shares the most intimate details of the love Perry lost, his darkest days, and his greatest friends." With Matthew Perry recently sharing on social media that "the book is now done," let's take a look at the actor's dating history.
Who are Matthew Perry's exes?
Before Perry got engaged (and later parted ways) with talent manager and producer Molly Hurwitz in 2021, he dated quite a few notable names in Hollywood. Every 'Friends' fan knows that Perry's Chandler Bing had a thing for 'Baywatch' star Yasmine Bleeth. He would go on to date her in real life in 1995. After earning fame and (eventual) fortune through 'Friends', Matthew Perry dated Julia Roberts after the latter made a guest appearance on the sitcom. Perry and Roberts were in a relationship from 1995 to 1996.
Matthew Perry had a fling with Neve Campbell after sparks flew between the two while working on 'Three To Tango' in 1998. It was over by the time the film hit the screens. He would go on to be in a serious relationship with 'Bold and Beautiful' star Maeve Quinlan from 2002 to 2003.
Perry was next spotted with Lauren Graham in 2003. The 'Gilmore Girls' star and Perry have managed to put their personal differences aside and work together multiple times over the years, even playing exes on 'The Odd Couple'. He was romantically linked with Rachel Dunn from 2003 to 2005 and it looked like they were heading for marriage but they eventually ended up calling it quits.
Following his relationship with Dunn, Perry began to date 'Mean Girls' star Lizzy Caplan. They were together for 6 years before parting ways quietly in 2012. Matthew Perry, according to rumors, started dating Molly Hurwitz in 2019 after reportedly spending Christmas with her. He became engaged to her in 2020 but the couple split the following year. Matthew confirmed the news to People magazine in a statement. "Sometimes things just don't work out and this is one of them. I wish Molly the best," Matthew Perry said.
Perry's memoir 'Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing' will hit the stands on November 1, 2022.
