Actress Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel Green on the hit NBC comedy “Friends,” posted a loving tribute to her late friend and co-star, Matthew Perry, on Wednesday.

Perry’s castmates have been slowly posting individual tributes following the actor’s unexpected death on October 28. Aniston shared her thoughts on Instagram.

“Oh boy this one has cut deep… Having to say goodbye to our Matty has been an insane wave of emotions that I’ve never experienced before. We all experience loss at some point in our lives. Loss of life or loss of love. Being able to really SIT in this grief allows you to feel the moments of joy and gratitude for having loved someone that deep. And we loved him deeply. He was such a part of our DNA,” Aniston began.


She next referenced the “Friends” crew, who also included David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, and Matt LeBlanc. “We were always the 6 of us,” she continued. “This was a chosen family that forever changed the course of who we were and what our path was going to be.”

Aniston went on, “For Matty, he KNEW he loved to make people laugh. As he said himself, if he didn’t hear the ‘laugh’ he thought he was going to die. His life literally depended on it. And boy did he succeed in doing just that. He made all of us laugh. And laugh hard. In the last couple weeks, I’ve been pouring over our texts to one another. Laughing and crying then laughing again. I’ll keep them forever and ever.” 

“Matty, I love you so much and I know you are now completely at peace and out of any pain,” her post concluded. “I talk to you every day… sometimes I can almost hear you saying ‘could you BE any crazier?’ Rest little brother. You always made my day…”

As part of her tribute, Aniston shared a black and white photo of herself sitting with Perry and laughing. She also posted a screenshot of their text conversation referencing the photo with a quote from her late friend that said, “Making you laugh just made my day.”
