Is Matthew Perry so enraged by Keanu Reeves that he wishes for his death in his memoir?

Matthew Perry rose to prominence as Chandler Bing on the NBC television sitcom “Friends.” Perry received numerous accolades for the series, which aired from 1994 to 2004, and went on to star in several comedic roles following “Friends.”

However, in Matthew Perry’s recent memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” the actor may have revealed a shocking revelation about famed actor Keanu Reeves.

In his most recent memoir, the 53-year-old actor expressed his frustration and grief over the death of his friend, River Phoenix, who also co-starred with him in his first film, “A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon.”

In an oddly specific and intense line, Matthew Perry seemed to imply that he’d prefer “The Matrix” actor dead over his late friend.

Perry writes:

“River was a beautiful man, inside and out. Too beautiful for this world, it turned out. It always seems to be the really talented guys who go down. Why is it that the original thinkers like River Phoenix and Heath Ledger die, but Keanu Reeves still walks among us?”

In his memoir, Matthew Perry wrote several times:

“I punched a hole through Jennifer Aniston’s dressing room wall when I found out. Keanu Reeves walks among us.”

According to reports, Matthew Perry and Keanu Reeves have not appeared in any projects together, implying that the two have no history. Following Matthew’s controversial line in the memoir, netizens took to social media to express their displeasure, with the majority siding with Keanu Reeves.

According to Deadline, Matthew Perry has clarified the context of his controversial Keanu Reeves remark. The “Friends” star stated that he had no particular dislike for the “John Wick” actor and apologized for any confusion or offense he may have caused.

Perry’s says in a statement:

“I’m actually a big fan of Keanu. I just chose a random name, my mistake. I apologize. I should have used my own name instead.”
