Lisa Kudrow shared a touching tribute to Matthew Perry on Instagram as she thanked her late co-star for teaching her things like “grace” and “love” following news of his death on October 28 at the age of 54.

In a post shared on Wednesday, the 60-year-old actress talked about her enduring friendship with the late “Friends” star as she opened up about how their friendship blossomed from the first day they met while shooting the pilot for the NBC show that would become “Friends.”

“Shot the pilot, ‘Friends Like Us,’ got picked up then immediately, we were at the NBC Upfronts,” Kudrow wrote. “Then…You suggested we play poker AND made it so much fun while we initially bonded. Thank you for that.”

“Thank you for making me laugh so hard at something you said, that my muscles ached, and tears poured down my face EVERY DAY,” she added. “Thank you for your open heart in a six way relationship that required compromise. And a lot of ‘talking.’ Thank you for showing up at work when you weren’t well and then, being completely brilliant.”

“Thank you for the best 10 years a person gets to have,” Kudrow continued. “Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for all I learned about GRACE and LOVE through knowing you. Thank you for the time I got to have with you, Matthew.”

The “Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion” star’s tribute was the last one from the stars who worked with Perry, who famously played Chandler Bing on the hit sitcom.


On Tuesday, Matt LeBlanc broke his silence, writing in part, “It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among the favorite times of my life. It was an honor to share the stage with you and to call you my friend. I will always smile when I think of you and I’ll never forget you. Never. Spread your wings and fly brother you’re finally free. Much love.”

Courteney Cox followed LeBlanc and wrote in her tribute about behind-the-scenes details of what was going on when she and Perry were shooting what would become an iconic moment in the “Friends” show. On Wednesday, Jennifer Aniston shared on Instagram about how heartbreaking it’s been going through the loss of Perry, whom she referred to, at one point, as her “little brother.”

“Matty, I love you so much and I know you are now completely at peace and out of any pain,” Aniston wrote. “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…”

The “Horrible Bosses” star’s post was followed up by David Schwimmer, who thanked Perry for “ten incredible years of laughter and creativity” and more.
