Renowned actress Jennifer Aniston finds herself facing a second heart-wrenching loss, and those close to her are deeply concerned for her well-being. Following the recent passing of her dear friend and F.R.I.E.N.D.S co-star, Matthew Perry, sources reveal that Jennifer Aniston is struggling to cope with this profound loss.
Matthew Perry’s death at the age of 54 has hit the beloved ‘Friends’ star particularly hard. Jennifer, along with the remaining four cast members of the iconic TV show, attended his burial last Friday. An industry insider commented, “Out of the remaining five, Jen and Courteney are reeling the most, and Jen is probably the one who is struggling most acutely.”
This tragedy marks a second significant loss in Jennifer Aniston’s life within less than a year, with the one-year anniversary of her father’s passing looming on the horizon. When her father, John Aniston, best known for his role on Days of Our Lives, passed away at the age of 89 in November 2022, Jennifer shared her heartfelt tribute, calling him “one of the most beautiful humans I ever knew.”
The source close to the actress describes the immense emotional toll this latest loss has taken, stating, “She is trying to regroup and recover, but it’s been a completely devastating blow.”
Jennifer Aniston, aged 54, joined her fellow ‘Friends’ cast members—Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc—on Friday for Matthew Perry’s burial in Los Angeles. The poignant event took place just minutes away from the Warner Bros. studios where the iconic NBC comedy series was filmed for an unforgettable decade.
Jennifer Aniston’s close connection with Matthew Perry extended beyond the screen, and she was visibly emotional in a 2004 interview at the mere thought of losing him. During the burial ceremony, she walked behind her fellow cast members, accompanied by a security officer.
Matthew Perry’s untimely death occurred in late October when he drowned in the jacuzzi of his Pacific Palisades residence. The actor had been candid about his struggles with addiction, and he publicly expressed his gratitude to Jennifer Aniston for her support and concern during difficult times.
In an October 2022 interview with Diane Sawyer, Matthew Perry acknowledged Jennifer Aniston’s unwavering friendship, saying, “She was the one that reached out the most. You know, I’m really grateful to her for that.” He revealed that it was Jennifer who confronted him about his addiction on the set of ‘Friends’ when it became apparent to their coworkers.
In his memoir, Matthew Perry also candidly shared his affection for Jennifer Aniston, revealing how he initially asked her out three years before their Friends journey began. Although she gently declined his advances, he confessed, “We can’t be friends!” His feelings, however, eventually subsided as he noted Jennifer’s “deafening lack of interest.”
The loss of Matthew Perry has deeply impacted Jennifer Aniston and those who knew him well, reminding us of the enduring bonds forged through friendship and shared experiences, both on and off the screen.
