Julia Roberts and Matthew Perry had a secret romance

The star of the series "Friends" Matthew Perry spoke about his love life, revealing the details of his secret romance with the famous Oscar winner Julia Roberts. Although he admitted that at one point he "ran home to read her letters", the relationship, unfortunately, did not last.

For the first time, Perry spoke openly about the events of his love life, mentioning his relationships with some of the most beautiful ladies in the world.
In addition to Gwyneth Paltrow and his colleague from the set Jennifer Aniston, with whom he was so in love that it led to certain unpleasant situations on the set of the series, the actor secretly had fun with Julia Roberts, with whom he constantly exchanged messages.

Perry revealed that everything took off after he was cast as Chandler Bing. It was then that Julia herself, who is 54 years old today, noticed him. To his surprise, she even agreed to appear in an episode of the "Friends Super Bowl" in 1995 to be by the actor's side.ž

The co-creator of the series told Matthew to contact Julia

"I had to woo her.

I wanted something a tad flirty. I sent her three dozen red roses and the card read, ‘The only thing more exciting than the prospect of you doing the show is that I finally have an excuse to send you flowers". Perry recalled, according to The Sun.

He stated that the response of the actress soon arrived, and told him that she agrees to be in the series if Perry "adequately explains quantum physics to her". "The following day I sent her a paper all about wave-particle duality and entanglement, and only some of it was metaphorical.

Not only did Julia agree to do the show, but she also sent me a gift: Bagels — lots and lots of bagels."says the actor. In the era when there was no internet or mobile devices, the couple started exchanging messages via fax.

This went on every day for the next three months, and it all ended with Julia appearing on Matthew's doorstep. "And there were hundreds. Three or four times a day I would sit at my fax machine and watch the piece of paper slowly reveal her next missive." "Some nights I would find myself out at a party sharing a flirtatious exchange with an attractive woman and cut the conversation short so I could race home and see if a new fax had arrived.

Nine times out of ten, one had. I was grinning like some 15-year-old on his first date. And we had never even spoken yet, much less met each other. Then, early one morning, something changed. Julia’s fax veered on romantic.

‘Call me’, it said, and her phone number was at the bottom." says Perry. That Saturday, he pointed out, someone knocked on his door, and it was Julija. He let in and that's when their relationship began. Matthew went on to reveal how Julia took him on a private jet to her mountain hideaway in New Mexico for New Year's Eve in 1996 and how he met her family there.

However, haunted by his demons and insecurities, Matthew broke off their relationship two months later. “Dating Julia Roberts had been too much for me. I had been constantly certain that she was going to break up with me.

I could never be enough; I was broken, bent, unlovable. So instead of facing the inevitable agony of losing her, I broke up with the beautiful and brilliant Julia Roberts. I can’t begin to describe the look of confusion on her face”.

says Perry and adds that when he told her of his decision, a look of confusion broke through her face. By the way, Matthew recently spoke about his long-term struggle with addiction, revealing how it almost cost him his life at one point. Fortunately, he managed to leave the dark period of his life behind.
