Last year, Matthew Perry published a memoir titled Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing. He talked to ABC News about the many details written in the book including his alcohol addiction and his experiences doing FRIENDS. He revealed the time when he had a big crush on FRIENDS co-star Jennifer Aniston, He said,

“Well, how can you not have a crush on Jenny? And Courteney [Cox]? And Lisa [Kudrow]? It made it kind of difficult to go to work because I had to pretend that I didn’t. I was like, ‘Is three seconds too long? How long is…?’. And then I write in the gratitude part [of the book] about her letting me do that.”

In an excerpt from the book, he wrote (via Entertainment Weekly),

“I was immediately taken by her (how could I not be?) and liked her, and I got the sense she was intrigued, too — maybe it was going to be something. Back then I got two jobs in one day — one was Haywire, an America’s Funniest Home Videos-type show, and the other was a sitcom. So I called Jennifer and I said, ‘You’re the first person I wanted to tell this to!’ Looking back, it was clear that this made her think I liked her too much or in the wrong kind of way… and I only compounded the error by then asking her out. She declined (which made it very difficult to actually go out with her), but said that she’d love to be friends with me, and I compounded the compound by blurting, ‘We can’t be friends!'”

Despite of the hard rejection, Perry and Aniston remained good friends and are still very close to this day. The cast even had a reunion in the 2021 documentary FRIENDS: The Reunion. New fans can experience the magic of FRIENDS on Netflix.
