Matthew Perry and girlfriend of Molly Hurwitz have split on Tuesday, the friend Star revealed in a statement to People magazine that he and his fiancee had called off their engagement, quote, Sometimes things just don’t work out. And this is one of them. I wish Molly the best. The 51-year-old actor started dating the twenty-nine-year-old literary manager in twenty eighteen, and they got engaged in November twenty. At the time, he told people, quote, I decided to get engaged.
Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet. At this time, Matthew has received an outpouring of love and support from his friends family recently.
It’s a very loving, tight knit group.
The director behind HBO, Max’s Friends, The Reunion, Ben Winston, recently spoke out against, quote, unkind comments about the actor and concerns for his health, specifically his seemingly slurred speech. Here’s what he said about Matthew during a chat with the Hollywood Reporter’s TV’s top five podcasts.
He was great. I think, you know, people can sometimes just be a little bit unkind. And I wish they weren’t. He was great. I loved working with him. I think he’s a brilliantly funny man. And I thought he had some great one-liners in the show. And yet I felt just happy to be lucky to be in his presence and direct to him on something like this. Friends executive producer and director Kevin Bright also weighed in on the comments in a separate interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Quote, What people say is what people say. I don’t have anything to say about that, except it was great to see him. And I think he’s very funny on the show. But yes, I think he’s OK. He seemed stronger and better since the last time I saw him and excited about going forward. Matthew has opened up about his health battles in recent years, sharing in September twenty eighteen that he had spent three months in a Los Angeles hospital following surgery to repair a gastrointestinal perforation.
He has also previously battled Vicodin and alcohol addiction. But no matter what Matthew is going through, his friends’ costars will always have his back, something Jennifer Aniston told E.T. leading up to the long-awaited HBO special.
All I can say is that there was something that was laid down at the very, very beginning that kind of went into our neural pathways that we instantly it was in our DNA that we were family. We were going to take care of each other.
