Meanwhile, Matthew riding solo comes on the heels of Friends: The Reunion, which saw Perry aka Chandler Bing reunite with his beloved castmates and close friends; Jennifer Aniston aka Rachel Green, Courteney Cox aka Monica Geller, Lisa Kudrow aka Phoebe Buffay, Matt LeBlanc aka Joey Tribbiani and David Schwimmer aka Ross Geller.

Ben Winston, who directed Friends Reunion, had shared his positive experience of working with Matthew during a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "I loved working with him. He's a brilliantly funny man and I thought he had some great one-liners in the show. I felt just happy and lucky to be in his presence and directing him on something like this," Ben praised Perry.


Anonymous : I wouldn't say we "now know the reason". Every couple that breaks an engagement "want different things". That doesn't tell us anything new at all. They probably didn't have much in common because he's old enough to be her father, but I suppose that's not a very tactful explanation.
