On October 28, 2023, the Network was shocked by the tragic news – Matthew Perry passed away at the age of 54. A couple of hours before his death, the movie star was actively playing pickleball. And soon his heart stopped forever. But what could have caused the actor to leave for a better world and why he could have had a completely different life, you will find out with us in the next few minutes.
Matthew Perry passed away
His personal assistant reported that Matthew Perry had passed away. After returning from the game, the actor sent an assistant on an errand. Alas, when he returned, no one opened the door for him. Having called rescuers, it was soon discovered that the actor playing Chandler from the cult TV series “Friends” had drowned in the jacuzzi. His heart stopped.
“ Matthew returned home sometime in the early afternoon after a two-hour round of pickleball. Soon after that, he sent his assistant on an errand,” an insider shared with reporters. It also turns out that the man drowned. Moreover, importantly, there were no traces of violence or prohibited substances. The actor purchased the house in which the tragedy occurred only this summer for $5 million.
Interestingly, some Internet users suggest that Perry predicted his own death. You see, just a week ago, the Friends star posted a photo of himself soaking in that same hot tub on Instagram. The photo became the last publication of the celebrity.
It is worth noting that not so long ago Matthew was already on the verge of death. So, back in 2018, after yet another addiction to illegal substances, the actor’s colon ruptured. Perry was in a coma for two weeks. Doctors, meanwhile, gave him no more than a 2% chance of survival. At that moment, fate clearly smiled on the “Friends” star. After all, he not only survived, but was also able to recover after 9 months of rehabilitation.
Subsequently, Matthew admitted more than once that this became a kind of reboot for him. At that moment, the actor understood that he would not have a second chance. True, the man could no longer boast of big roles or stable relationships .
Film companies and actors, as well as many Friends fans, reacted to the news that Matthew Perry had passed away. All over the world, viewers of the cult series write words of condolences to the star’s loved ones and share their experience of loss. “He was a true gift to all of us,” Warner Bros. wrote.
“My oldest friend. We all loved Matthew Perry, and I loved him with a special love. Every day. I loved him unconditionally, just as he loved me. I’m broken. Sweet dreams, Matty. Sweet dreams,” said Legally Blonde star Selma Blair.
