Five months after the death of “Friends” star Matthew Perry (1969-2023), “Gilmore Girls” actress Lauren Graham (57) spoke again about their friendship and also revealed what his last birthday present to her was.

During the tour for her book “Have I Told You This Already?” left her in Washington, D.C. According to a report by the US portal “People”, it is clear that she is far from over the loss: “It’s still hard to believe.” Although they were never a couple, Perry was “a friend and a constant” in her life. Even if they didn’t have such close contact at times, he was somehow always there. “He only came back into my life last year,” she explained, before sharing what Perry got her for her birthday in March 2023. He sent her “a pickleball set.” “He’s a real tennis and pickleball fan,” she explained. He also placed a card with the inscription “Be older”. His death was “a terrible loss.”

Matthew Perry, on the other hand, once described Graham as “one of my favorite people” on his show “The Odd Couple”. “We have great chemistry working together and it’s fun to work with a close friend,” he said. A photo of him and Graham also appeared in his 2022 memoir “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.” The caption read: “Me and the beautiful Lauren Graham.”

Matthew Perry was found lifeless in the hot tub of his Los Angeles home on October 28, 2023. According to the autopsy report, he died from “acute effects of ketamine.” Ultimately, Perry drowned. The star was also diagnosed with coronary heart disease. Traces of buprenorphine, a powerful painkiller from the opioid group, were found in his blood. Matthew Perry has struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol throughout his life. He also reported this unsparingly in his book. He became famous for his role as Chandler Bing in the cult series “Friends”, which he played from 1994 to 2004.
