Matthew Perry Reveals Hatred For Keanu Reeves In New Book

Matthew Perry made a controversial admission in his new memoir: he is not a fan of Keanu Reeves, a revered Hollywood legend. In his most recent book, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, the Friends actor expressed his odd animosity toward Reeves. While praising other performers, such as Reeves’ longtime best friend River Phoenix, who passed away unexpectedly in 1993, Perry spoke about his irritation with Reeves.

Few people, at least publicly, have expressed a dislike for Reeves, who is renowned for being one of the few decent men in the entertainment business. But Perry claims in his most recent book that he holds a different opinion.

A presumably long-standing loathing of Reeves stands out among the many shocking revelations Perry made in his new book, including his health issues, the seriousness of the problem with his drug struggles, and the near-death experiences resulting from it.

Why does Keanu Reeves continue to live among us when creative thinkers like River Phoenix and Heath Ledger pass away? Perry included a startling quote from his book. Perry went on to compare Chris Farley, a comedian, and Keanu Reeves to his late best friend.

When Phoenix appeared in his debut film, A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon, in 1988, Perry and Phoenix grew friends. Like Perry, Phoenix struggled with addiction issues from an early age. Nearly 30 years ago, the budding celebrity overdosed and died tragically young at the age of 23.

“River was a wonderful man inside and out and too beautiful for this world, it turned out,” Perry wrote of the demise of his friend. The guys who lose tend to invariably be the genuinely talented ones.

In front of the famous Viper Room in West Hollywood, Perry continued to speak, leading him to sob as he described the raw feelings he experienced upon learning of his death. I returned to bed after hearing the screams coming from my flat and woke up to the news, he said. He also remembered the moment he learned Farley had passed away, but not before taking another jab at Reeves.

After appearing together in the 1988 comedy Almost Heroes, Perry and Farley grew close. Farley, who was in the prime of his career, passed away in 1997 at age 33 from an overdose. When I discovered out, I smashed a hole in the wall of Jennifer Aniston’s dressing room, Perry said, curiously adding, “Keanu Reeves walks among us.”
