Matthew Perry (star of the Friends series) recently wrote his memoir. A passage is devoted to his romance, brief, with actress Julia Roberts. But why had he broken up with her? Explanations.
You may not know it but Matthew Perry (aka Chandler in the cult series Friends ) lived a short love story with the beautiful Julia Roberts (55 years) . A story as surprising as it is short but worth telling. The Sun and The Times thus revealed the excerpt from the book Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing which tells this little romance between the two actors. A passage that the American actor recounts in his memoirs in the midst of his other darkest secrets such as his long addiction to alcohol. A story that began by fax and which is at the initiative of the actor, who had been pinching for the beauty for a while. And we understand it.
The actor did his best to woo the actress with the sublime smile. And he did it with the means available at the time. ' This was before the Internet, before cell phones. All of our communications were done by fax. There were hundreds of them. three or four times a day, I sat in front of my fax machine and watched its message slowly appear. Some nights I'd find myself at a party hitting on a pretty woman and I'd cut the conversation short to go home and see if a new fax had arrived. ', he writes. It almost makes us want to go back to the days of faxes... But then, when do these exchanges become interviews? ' A Saturday '. He explains that he even spent New Years 1996 with Julia Roberts and her family, in New Mexico. But the romance will be short-lived with the star of Pretty Woman , which we currently find in the cinema in the romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise near George Clooney .
It was Matthew Perry (53) who dumped the actress. And not because things weren't going well between them. After two months, it was caught up in his lack of self-confidence and preferred to end the relationship that was giving him anxieties and insecurities.
' Dating Julia Roberts was too much for me. I always felt like she was going to break up with me. I couldn't be enough. I was broken, I couldn't love. Instead of facing my fear of losing her one day, I preferred to break up with the beautiful and brilliant Julia Roberts ', adds who then dated actress Lizzy Caplan for six years. A decision that surprised the main interested party: ' I could never describe the confusion on his face well enough. Julia Roberts has been married since 2002 to Daniel Moder, father of her three children: Hazel and Phinnaeus (born November 28, 2004) and Henry (born June 18, 2007).
