The Heartbreaking Reason Why Matthew Perry Had to Break Up with Julia Roberts in Their Late 20s


The love story between Matthew Perry and Julia Roberts captivated fans, but their romance came to an abrupt end in their late 20s.

As Perry, known for his role as Chandler Bing on Friends, recently revealed, there was a heartbreaking reason behind their breakup.

The connection between Perry and Roberts began in 1995 when the talented actress was approached to guest star on Friends.

The producers encouraged Perry to reach out to Roberts, who had expressed her interest in joining the show, but only if she could be part of Chandler Bing’s storyline.

Recalling the early moments of their budding romance, Perry shared, “I sent her three dozen red roses, and the card read, ‘The only thing more exciting than the prospect of you doing the show is that I finally have an excuse to send you flowers.'”

Roberts agreed to appear on Friends and even surprised Perry with a gift of bagels. Perry cherishes these memories and shares the story of their relationship in his autobiography. Their courtship spanned three months through daily faxes while Roberts was filming a movie in France. They officially became a couple when the episode featuring Roberts started filming.

Perry eagerly awaited Roberts’ faxes, often interrupting conversations with other women to check for her messages. However, Perry’s low self-esteem began to take a toll on their relationship. He couldn’t shake the belief that Roberts would eventually break up with him.

Perry confesses, “Dating Julia Roberts had been too much for me. I had been constantly certain that she was going to break up with me. Why would she not? I was not enough; I could never be enough; I was broken, bent, unlovable.”

While Perry’s career was soaring with the success of Friends, his personal life was filled with insecurities. In order to avoid the pain of an inevitable breakup, Perry made the heartbreaking decision to end his relationship with the beautiful and talented Julia Roberts.

Matthew Perry is renowned for his incredible acting skills and versatility. Beyond his comedic brilliance, he has showcased his remarkable dramatic talent in various projects.
