Matthew Perry talks about his relationship with Julia Roberts and the reason for their breakup

Matthew Perry, the actor who played the legendary Chandler Bing on the hit series Friends, has released a book in which he talks candidly about the ins and outs of the fictional series that shot him to stardom, titled Friends, Lovers and the Big Bad Thing.

He also talks about his drug addiction, from which he almost died four years ago. But he also devotes several pages to his relationship with Julia Roberts and the reason for the end of their short-lived love affair. In fact, they have only been together for a few months.

“Julia was offered the post-Super Bowl episode in the second season and said she would only be on the show if it had something to do with my story,” the book says. “Let me repeat: She would only be on the show if she had anything to do with my story. But I had to woo her first.”, Perry adds about how their romance was born. The actor admits that at that time he sent the actress more than three dozen roses accompanied by a note. “The only thing more exciting than the idea of ​​being on the show is finally getting to send you flowers”he explains.

However, this is not enough, because Julia Roberts sets one condition: if he explains quantum physics to her, she will accept the offer.

“The next day I sent her articles to read. Julia agreed to be on the show and even sent me a gift: muffins. Sure, why not? It was Julia Roberts.”he continues with the story, which has not yet seen the light of day.

By the time they are photographed on set, they are already a couple in real life. However, this does not last long and soon the two go their separate ways. “Meeting Julia Roberts was too much for me,” admits Perry.

“I was sure she was going to break up with me”, he says, claiming that he was the one who made the decision to go ahead and break up with her. “Instead of facing the inevitable grief of losing her, I broke up with the beautiful and brilliant Julia Roberts. I can’t describe the confusion on her face,” concludes the author of the book, which will be published in Spain on November 17 under the title “Amigos, amantes y aquello tan terrible”.
