Lauren Graham Fondly Recalls Matthew Perry Was Really Happy Before He Died – Upnewsdaily

The Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham was a close friend of Matthew Perry, and said he was really happy and satisfied before his untimely death.

“This last year, he was so proud of the book he wrote, and of how many people it touched,” Graham, 56, said on a CBS Mornings appearance Thursday. “It was a success that gave him a level of happiness that I hadn’t seen in him for a really long time, so that’s a nice memory.”

Perry died unexpectedly on Oct. 28 at age 54 at his Pacific Palisades home.

“I am still in shock,” Graham said. “I mean, it’s a really tragic loss, and he leaves his beautiful work behind. That’s something to be thankful for, and again, the book really meant something to him, so it was a really happy year for him.”

She fondly recalled her relationship with Perry.

“No one made me laugh as hard. Just tears, streaming. There was just such joy in being around him and being his friend.”

The two met while filming the 2008 movie Birds of America, and stayed in touch. In his memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing, Perry included a photo of them together, which he captioned, “Me and the beautiful Lauren Graham.” And in a fan Q&A for his show, The Odd Couple, Perry called her “one of my favorite people. We have great chemistry when working together and it’s fun to work with a close friend.”
