Courteney Cox pays heartbreaking tribute to Matthew Perry following death

Courteney Cox pays heartbreaking tribute to Matthew Perry following death

She paid tribute to Matthew Perry, her Friends co-star

Courteney Cox has posted a personal tribute to Matthew Perry on social media following the tragic death of her Friends co-star.

The two of them starred together in the incredibly popular sitcom as couple Monica and Chandler, and she has been on Instagram to share her memories of Perry.

She also shared one of her favourite scenes that she'd performed with Perry in her post - including a blooper where Perry encouraged her to tell a naughty joke.

She wrote: "I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day.

"When you work with someone as closely as I did with Matthew, there are thousands of moments I wish I could share. For now here’s one of my favorites.

"To give a little backstory, Chandler and Monica were supposed to have a one night fling in London. But because of the audience’s reaction, it became the beginning of their love story.

"In this scene, before we started rolling, he whispered a funny line for me to say.

"He often did things like that. He was funny and he was kind."

In the clip Cox shared, Monica is hiding in Chandler's bed while Ross comes in to wish him good morning.

Monica emerging from under the covers when Ross leaves is met with rapturous cheers from the live studio audience.

Cox quips as Monica: "OK, your turn," before turning to Perry to say: "We're kidding! He told me to say it. He did!"

Earlier today their fellow Friends co-star Matt LeBlanc shared his own personal tribute to his friend and colleague, along with a series of pictures of their time together and a joke to finish things off.

"Matthew. It is with a heavy heart I say goodbye," LeBlanc wrote about Perry.

"The times we had together are honestly among the favourite times of my life.

"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.

"And I guess you’re keeping the 20 bucks you owe me."

The individual messages about Matthew Perry follow a joint statement from his Friends co-stars who said they were 'devastated' at his death and would say more in due course.

Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow released a joint statement that said: "We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family.

"There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss. In time we will say more, as and when we are able.

"For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world."
