Matthew Perry 'has always been in love' with 'Friends' co-star Courteney Cox, and has never got over it: Report
Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox played the iconic roles of Chandler Bing and Monica Geller on the popular NBC sitcom 'Friends'.
On the show, the two characters end up falling in love and getting married. According to a source, Matthew Perry, 50, has always actually had a thing for his co-star Courteney Cox, 55. As reported by US Weekly, a source shared, "Matthew’s always been in love with her. Matthew has never fully been able to get over her".
The two were seen reuniting for a lunch date and Cox had taken to social media to share a rare selfie of the pair. She had captioned the image, "Could I BE any happier? #realfriends". Unfortunately for Perry, Cox is currently dating Johnny McDaid. In the past, Perry has been romantically linked to Yasmine Bleeth, Julia Roberts, and Lizzy Caplan.
Very recently, the Hollywood Reporter had revealed that there are talks of a possible 'Friends' reunion special which would see all 6 cast members- Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc. Insiders shared that while there are no deals in place at this time, the fact that all the cast and creators are willing to come together again is a big thing.
'Friends' had aired 10 seasons on NBC between 1994 and 2004. It then began streaming on Netflix in 2015 and in July this year it was revealed that HBO Max obtained the rights to the show. HBO Max had reportedly paid around $85 million per year in a five-year deal for the show.
Over the past few years, both the cast and the creators have been against a reunion or reboot. Aniston shared on Howard Stern's radio show that a reboot "won't be even close to as good what it was" and it could potentially ruin the original. She did seem open to a reunion though and spoke about it on Ellen DeGeneres' show.
"I would do it. The girls would do it. And the boys would do it, I'm sure," she had shared.
