Lisa Kudrow thanks Matthew Perry endlessly in her touching tribute

Lisa Kudrow was the last of the Friends cast to post a tribute to Matthew Perry, thanking him multiple times.

Tragically, the comedy world recently lost one of its greats when actor Matthew Perry was found dead in his California home of apparent drowning.

Since his death was announced, a slew of his co-stars, including the cast of Friends, have posted tributes to him and expressed how much he meant to them.

And Matt LeBlanc got the ball rolling by honoring the cast of Friends while the rest of the group followed suit. And now, the latest Friends member – Lisa Kudrow – has posted a heartfelt message to Perry in which she continues to thank him for his friendship.

In honor of Perry, Kudrow released a review of the Friends pilot

In a long Instagram postKudrow explained how much Perry’s friendship meant to her and thanked him endlessly for what he brought into her life.

“I shot the pilot, Friends Like Us, got picked up straight away, we were at the NBC Upfronts. Then…you suggested we play poker AND it was so much fun that we initially met,” Kudrow wrote. “Thank you so much for that. Thank you for making me laugh so hard at something you said that my muscles ached and tears streamed down my face EVERY DAY.”

“Thank you for your open heart in a six-way relationship that required compromise. And a lot of “talking”. Thank you for showing up to work when you weren’t feeling well and then being absolutely brilliant. Thank you for the best 10 years a person can have. Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for everything I have learned about GRACE and LOVE from knowing you. Thank you for the time I had with you, Matthew.”

In her post, Kudrow seemingly addressed Perry’s open battle with addiction, something Perry was incredibly proud of every day and discussed both on panels and in his memoirs.

Similar to her other Friends co-stars, Kudrow’s tribute showed just how strong the bond was between the two, and Perry seemed to point out that he called her the “second funniest Friends actress” after herself.
