Matthew Perry is single again. The actor of “Friends” has just announced having broken off his engagement with his partner for three years, Molly Hurwitz. In a statement to People magazine, he explained, “Sometimes things don’t work out and this engagement was one of them. I wish Molly the best ”.
It was in November 2020 that the actor announced his engagement with the literary director, Molly Hurwitz : “I decided to get engaged. I am fortunate to be dating the coolest woman on the planet right now. The couple started dating in 2018. Matthew Perry has never been married before. The actor had a six-year long relationship with actress Lizzy Caplan between 2006 and 2012.
This bad news comes just days after the airing of the special reunion episode of “Friends” where the actor, who has long struggled with alcoholism, faced a wave of negative comments about his appearance . An episode in which Matthew Perry revealed to have long been very anxious on the set, for fear of not making the spectators in the room laugh: “I had the impression that I was going to die if they did not laugh. And that’s not healthy for sure, but when I said a line and they weren’t laughing, I was sweating and having convulsions if I didn’t get the laughs that were intended. I was panicking. A behavior that these colleagues at the time had not noticed.
