Matthew Perry, Friends Star Flirted With Julia Roberts To Get Her On The Show

Perry had to write a paper on quantum physics

Julia Roberts’s appearance on the show “Friends” was one of the biggest buzzes in the sitcom’s lifetime, and it all began with a fax from Matthew Perry. 

The show’s creators recently opened up on how Matthew Perry convinced Julia Roberts to appear in Friends’ episode. In a recent interview, the team disclosed that Matthew Perry flirted through fax with the beautiful actress to get her on the show.

After the NFL game in 1996, the episode featured many guest appearances, including Julia Roberts and the regular cast- Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, and Courtney Cox.

When Matthew Perry asked Julia Roberts to appear on Friends, she wrote back -” Write me a paper on quantum physics and I’ll do it.” Matthew wrote the piece, sent it to her via fax, and successfully convinced her to appear on the show.

It has been around 20 years since the actress appeared as a guest in one of the Friends’ episodes. Julia Roberts played Susie Moss’s role in the episode, a friend of Chandler Bing, who wanted revenge for a childhood prank by faking a hook-up with him.

Matthew Perry and Roberts also continued their romantic relationship in their personal lives and were seen on dates as stated by several reports. Matthew Perry also dated other actresses including Lizzy Caplan. Last year in November, the actor got engaged to Molly Hurwitz after dating her for two years.

Matthew Perry also tweeted about the friend’s reunion rescheduling in March 2021. The reunion was earlier planned in May, but it got delayed due COVID-19.

Lisa Kudrow, who was seen playing Phoebe Buffay, also clarified that the whole cast would be seen chatting with one another soon in a reunion. Kudrow said-“It’s not a reboot. It’s not like a scripted thing, we’re not portraying our characters. It’s us getting together, which just doesn’t happen a lot and has never happened in front of other people since 2004 when we stopped.”

Finally, after so many years, the reunion of our favourite characters will become a reality!!
