According to a source at Us Weekly that’s cited by Perez Hilton, Perry says he always hoped he and Cox could have a real-life relationship together.
“Matthew’s always been in love with her,” says the source.
Say what now? Was all that chemistry real?
It gets better: Perry apparently “has never fully been able to get over” his love for Courteney.
That’s … wow.
What is clear is that Perry and Cox still have a nice friendship going. On Nov. 7, Cox posted a picture of the two together, with a fun message.
Make sure you think about the message as if Monica Geller was saying it:
“Guess who I had lunch with today….I KNOW!! Could I BE any happier? #realfriends.”
You would think all the fan feedback would be positive, but people seem focused on the current appearance of Chandler/Monica:
“You guys have a bunch of plastic in to your face. Please no more botox,” said one person underneath the Instagram photo.
A lot of people were apparently concerned with Perry’s physical appearance.
“Seriously, nobody is going to say anything about his face?! What happened to him?” said someone on social media.
“Even I was wondering something is off about his face,” said another.
People tend to forget that the actors who play their favorite characters will still age. It’s just unavoidable.
You can put away the rest of your shipping dreams, though: Since 2013, Cox has been linked with Johnny McDavid.
Before that, from 1999 to 2013, Cox was married to David Arquette. They have a daughter together — Coco, 15. And Perry has been busy in the dating world himself. He’s been linked up with Julia Roberts, Yasmine Bleeth, and Lizzy Caplan.
So a real fling between Monica and Chandler may likely never happen.
Could things BE any more exciting for “Friends” fans?
Sometimes it’s hard to believe that even after all this time, the sitcom still brings such strong feelings for viewers. Maybe it’s just that the show hit a sweet spot, maybe it was great writing, or really good chemistry between the cast. Whatever the reason, “Friends” is still going strong in syndication and everywhere else.
