There has been talking of lasting love for Friends star Matthew Perry. According to sources, Perry, who portrayed Chandler Bing in the beloved series, Friends, has never fully moved on from his co-star Courteney Cox, who played Monica Geller.
The entire cast was very close during the filming of the NBC show, and they recently reunited for Friends: The Reunion on HBO Max in 2021. Although there was no apparent flirting between Perry and Cox during the special, there appear to be some lingering feelings between them.
In 2019, a report from Us Weekly stated that Perry had wanted to date Cox for years. “Matthew’s always been in love with her,” a source revealed, adding, “Matthew has never fully been able to get over her.”
In 2019, there were rumors of a romance between the two after Cox posted a picture on Instagram of herself with Perry after lunch. The comments on the post were filled with heart emojis and fans reminiscing over Monica and Chandler’s love story.
While Cox has been involved in other relationships, such as her marriage to David Arquette from 1999 to 2013 and her current boyfriend Johnny McDavid, Perry has also had his fair share of romances. In the 90s, he dated Yasmine Bleeth and Julia Roberts, and from 2006 to 2012, he was in a relationship with Lizzy Caplan. Perry was recently engaged to talent manager Molly Hurwitz, but they broke up in June 2021.
Although personal feelings are involved, fans hope for a real-life Monica and Chandler love story. It would be a dream come true for Friends enthusiasts to see their favorite on-screen couple become an item in real life. This could be better than another Friends reunion.
