It has been more than a week since the unexpected death of actor Matthew Perry (✝54). Not only his fans are left out of his departure, but of course his fellow actors as well. And perhaps the most shocked is the actress Jennifer Aniston, who helped him in his battle with addictions.
Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry were friends not only in front of the camera. That’s why his departure was a real shock for her. The actor’s family organized a private ceremony on Saturday for only those closest to them, where colleagues from the series Friends also arrived. Interment took place at Forest Lawn Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills.
Funerals are often the last point and act as a farewell. They usually try to live on after them. However, Jennifer Aniston is not able to recover from the death of her friend. “Of the remaining five, it’s Jennifer and Courteney who are the most affected, and Jen is the one who’s really hurting,” a source told the Daily Mail. “It doesn’t matter if he died as a result of a freak accident or an addiction. For Jennifer, it was a day she had dreaded for twenty years. She always wanted to help Matthew as much as she could. It was a priority for her.“
This is Jennifer’s second major loss in a year. “It is the second big loss for her in less than a year, the first anniversary of her father’s death is approaching. She still hadn’t recovered from his death, and this completely brought her to her knees. She does what she can to pull herself together but Matthew Perry’s death was a devastating blow to her,” the source added. Aniston was one of the first at the scene of the final farewell and left right after it ended.

Serial Rachel was one of the closest friends Perry had. They spent a lot of time together on the set, but they also understood each other in their private lives. And before his death, the actor confided that Aniston was a great support for him in the fight against addictions. It was she who opened his eyes and made him realize that he had a problem with alcohol and should go to treatment. “She was the one who most often offered me a helping hand. I am truly extremely grateful to her for that,” the actor let himself be heard.
