Unlike many Hollywood stars, Matthew Perry kept the details of his love life somewhat under wraps, rarely speaking about his romantic entanglements.
But the Friends actor – who died on October 28, aged 54 – did have his share of high-profile relationships, many of which he spoke about candidly for the first time in his 2022 memoir, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing: A Memoir.
Though Matthew Perry never married, he came close once or twice – but had a habit of ending relationships before they ever progressed to the wedding stage.
"That is what I manifest, something that's wrong with them. And then I break up with them," he said.
"But there can’t be something wrong with everyone. I'm the common denominator. I left first because I thought they were going to annihilate me."
He also shared that he "had a tremendous amount of fear" about love for a long time – but it's something he worked hard to overcome.
"Through a lot of work, I've got over that fear," he said.
