Matthew Perry will always keep his friends close to his heart.
The “Friends” star, 53, loves his pals so much that he wished he could see his co-stars more often.
The actor gushed over his old castmate Jennifer Aniston and the rest of his hit sitcom’s ensemble at GQ’s Men of the Year bash on Thursday.
He especially singled out Aniston, also 53, saying, “Wonderful, she’s terrific,” according to an “Access Hollywood” chat on the red carpet.
“We don’t see each other as much. I wish the group would see each other more times,” Perry said before adding about Aniston, “But she’s the greatest.”
The “Serving Sara” actor recently released his new memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” in which he discussed his career as well as his drug and alcohol addictions.
In his book, he wrote about how his health affected his time on the ’90s NBC sitcom.
The Canadian native noted how his co-stars Aniston, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Courteney Cox gave him support throughout the show’s run while he was battling his vices.
“They were understanding, and they were patient,” he told People ahead of his memoir’s release last month. “It’s like penguins. In nature, when one is sick or very injured, the other penguins surround it and prop it up and walk around until that penguin can walk on its own. And that’s kind of what the cast did for me.
“I thought being funny all the time was how I would get through,” he recalled. “I thought [‘Friends’] was going to fix everything. It didn’t.”
According to a recent interview with Diane Sawyer, Perry also admitted how “Along Came Polly” actress Aniston confronted him about his sobriety after she smelled alcohol on him.
“She was the one who reached out the most,” Perry said during his tell-all with the veteran journalist.
While he did drink during his run on “Friends,” Perry stated that he tried to keep his issues a secret from his castmates — until one day they confronted him in his dressing room.
“I thought I was hiding it so well,” he explained. “But I wasn’t in a position to stop.”
