Matthew Perry apologizes for Keanu Reeves comments on Memoir

Matthew Perry has issued an apology after excerpts from his upcoming memoir criticizing actor Keanu Reeves were published.

“I’m actually a huge Keanu fan,” Perry said in a statement to our sister site Deadline. “I chose a random name, my mistake. I apologize. I should have used my own name instead.

In an extract from Friends memoirs of the star, with the title Friends, lovers and the big horrible thing (out next Tuesday), Perry mourns the untimely death of talented actors like River Phoenix, with whom Perry worked in the 1988s. A night in the life of Jimmy Reardon:: “Why do original thinkers like River Phoenix and Heath Ledger die, but Keanu Reeves continues to walk among us?”

Later in the book, Perry recalls hearing that his almost heroes co-star Chris Farley had died of a drug overdose: “I punched a hole in Jennifer Aniston’s dressing room wall when I found out. Keanu Reeves walks among us.”

Perry’s memoir also details his long struggle with drug addiction, including several times when he nearly lost his life to the disease. He is set to sit down with ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer for an hour-long interview airing this Friday at 8/7c on ABC.
