The cast of the main characters of the American sitcom Friends - Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc - reacted for the first time to the death of their colleague, Matthew Perry, who played the role of Chandler. The stars remained silent for two days, experiencing personal grief.
Only on the third day did they respond to journalists with a joint statement published by People. The "friends" promised to raise this topic again when they can recover from the tragedy (to see the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page) .
"We are all very devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just filming partners. We are a family. We have so much to say, but right now we want to take time out to mourn and process this incomprehensible loss," the statement reads.
The celebrities intrigued fans with the fact that they would later reveal some details or share memories with Matthew Perry.
"Over time, we will say more as soon as we can. For now, our thoughts and love are with Matty's family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world," the celebrities added.
As a reminder, the actor was found dead in a jacuzzi. Doctors initially assumed that Perry had drowned. It is noted that the first responders arrived at the scene due to a call about a cardiac arrest. All the details are in the article.
Fans speculate that the star could have committed suicide. The reason for such speculation was Perry's strange posts a few days before his death. Law enforcement officers searched the deceased's home. They did not find any drugs, which the filmmaker had been addicted to for many years, but they did find a lot of prescription drugs. After his death, a friend of the star showed Perry's last messages.
