After Mathew Perry’s cruel inquiry on why Keanu Reeves “walks among us,” Reeves appears to be in disbelief.
A source who spoke with Us Weekly on Friday about Perry’s numerous allusions to Keanu in his most recent memoir.
The source added, “Keanu thought the comments were unexpected.” It kind of backfired on Matthew, so he had to apologise nonetheless.
In advance of the publication of his memoir Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, the 53-year-old Friends alum apologised to Keanu.
Actually, I like Keanu a lot. My error: I just picked a name at random. He admitted as much to People Magazine. I ought to have used my real name.
In the film, they both played closest friends, but the Stand by Me actor passed away in 1993 from a heroin overdose at the age of 23.
Why does Keanu Reeves continue to live among us when creative thinkers like River Phoenix and Heath Ledger pass away? the star of 17 Again writes.
He continued, “It turns out that River was a gorgeous man on the inside and out who was unsuited for this environment. The guys who fall tend to always be the genuinely gifted ones.”
Perry also recalled his initial thoughts following the 1997 overdose death of his co-star from the film Almost Heroes, Chris Farley.
When I learned, I “punched a hole through the wall of Jennifer Aniston’s dressing room,” he claims. “Keanu Reeves is here with us.”
Perry and Reeves never publicly had a falling out, so the mean comments raised many eyebrows that Perry had a bizarre obsession with the Reeves.
