Courteney Cox shares poignant tribute to Matthew Perry after his death: ‘I miss you every day’

Monica and Chandler forever.

Courteney Cox shared a poignant tribute to her “Friends” co-star Matthew Perry two weeks after his shocking death.

“I am so grateful for every moment I had with you Matty and I miss you every day,” the “Scream” star wrote on Instagram Tuesday.

Cox, 59, included a clip of one of her favorite “Friends” scenes with Perry from the Season 4 finale, in which David Schwimmer caught the on-screen couple in bed together.

“To give a little backstory, Chandler and Monica were supposed to have a one night fling in London. But because of the audience’s reaction, it became the beginning of their love story,” she wrote.

“In this scene, before we started rolling, he whispered a funny line for me to say. He often did things like that. He was funny and he was kind. 🤍🕊️.”

The actress, who noted that there are “thousands of moments” she could revisit, uploaded her post just hours after Matt LeBlanc became the first “Friends” star to take to social media since the loss.

Perry died on Oct. 28 in an apparent drowning at his home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles. He was 54.

Foul play was not suspected, and only prescription drugs were found at the scene, according to the outlet. Officials have yet to reveal his cause of death.

Perry revealed in his 2022 memoir, “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing,” that immediately after filming Chandler and Monica’s wedding episode, he went to rehab to deal with his addiction struggles.

“[I was] at the height of my highest point in ‘Friends,’ the highest point in my career, the iconic moment on the iconic show,” he wrote of the moment he arrived at the treatment center “in a pickup truck helmed by a sober technician.”

Just months before the book hit stores, Cox remembered Perry putting “a lot of pressure … on himself” while starring on “Friends” and simultaneously battling substance abuse.

“He’s just struggled for a while,” she acknowledged to the Sunday Times, making sure to note, however, that the actor was “doing great” again.

Cox, along with the other main “Friends” cast members, attended Perry’s funeral on Nov. 3. He was subsequently buried in a star-studded section of Forest Lawn Memorial Park in LA.

The “utterly devastated” castmates previously issued a joint statement promising to individually speak out about Perry’s death after taking “a moment to grieve and process.”
