It is arguably the greatest bromance in TV sitcom history. Chandler and Joey were like Bert and Ernie!
Matt LeBlanc is paying tribute to his friend in real life and co-star Matthew Perry, saying he’s finally free” after battling years of addiction.
“Matthew. It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye. The times we had together are honestly among the favourite times of my life,” LeBlanc wrote in an Instagram post that included a carousel of images that showed them on the set of Friends throughout its 10-year run. “It was an honour 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.”
LeBlanc concluded his post with a joke: “And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me.”
And Chandler’s TV wife Monica shared her favourite moment with the world…
When you work with someone as closely as I did with Matthew, there are thousands of moments I wish I could share
“I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day,” she wrote alongside a clip from the hit NBC comedy that ran for 10 seasons from 1994 to 2004.
“When you work with someone as closely as I did with Matthew, there are thousands of moments I wish I could share,” she added. “For now here’s one of my favourites.”
The remaining cast members have not yet made a public statement.
