Well-known internationally, Matthew Perry was born on August 19, 1969 in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The American actor and writer has enjoyed great success throughout his professional career, and it is precisely this that has endeared him to audiences around the world.
Matthew is the son of Suzanne Jane Louise Morrison, a Canadian journalist and former press secretary to Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, and John Bennett Perry, an American and Canadian actor. However, the two divorced before their son's first birthday. She grew up in Ottawa and, during that time, developed a great talent for tennis.
A successful career as an actor
His beginnings in acting took place in the late 80s, when he debuted as an actor in the series 'Second Chance'. Shortly after, Matthiew made the leap to the big screen at the age of 18, participating in the film 'A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon'.
After several television appearances in titles such as 'Charles in charge', '240 Robert' or 'Silver Spoons' among others, the role that would be his great success had not yet arrived in his life.
Chandler Bing in 'Friends
One date Matthiew will certainly not forget is 1994. At that time, the actor received the news that he would play the character of Chandler Bing in the NBC series 'Friends'. However, he did not yet know what this would mean for his professional career.
This was the great success of Perry's career, who shared the stage with relevant actors such as Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer. The series ended up being an international sensation and, thanks to his role in it, he was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2002.
From there, the American starred in series such as 'Go On', 'The Odd Couple' and 'The Good Fight'. In addition, he also participated in a special that premiered in May of last year 2021 on HBO Max: 'Friends: The Reunion', where he reunited with his former colleagues.
What about your personal life?
Apparently, his love life has not been as successful as his professional one. We know that Matthiew is not married, but we also know some of the partners he has had throughout his life.
The first rumors about a relationship arose in 1995. At that time, the American actor dated Yasmine Bleeth. But this story did not last long, since that same year it was known that he was with Julia Roberts, with whom he barely lasted a year.
After this, Matthiew began to be related to actress Lizzy Caplan. So far, this was his longest relationship, from 2006 to 2012.
He was engaged to Molly Hurwitz
Most recently, news broke in November 2020: Molly Hurwitz and Matthiew announced that they were engaged. However, something went wrong between the couple, as in June 2021, Perry announced that he had called off the engagement.
As of today, nothing else is known about their love life and we don't know for sure what it is that gets in the way of their relationship that makes it not work.
