"How long can I look at her?”: Matthew Perry’s Uncontrollable Crush on Jennifer Aniston Made Him Miserable After Actress Started Dating Brad Pitt

NBC's Friends is now a part of the pop culture zeitgeist. There are probably very few people who haven't caught at least one episode of the hit sitcom that catapulted Matthew Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc into stardom.

All of them are reportedly friends to this day, but some of the cast members did have crushes on each other. While many fans of the show perhaps know about David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston's mutual crush, many are probably unaware of the one that Matthew Perry had on Aniston as well.


In an interview with ABC News' Diane Sawyer, Matthew Perry who played Chandler Bing on Friends, said that he had huge crushes on all of his female co-stars on the show- Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow. He said:

"How can you not have a crush on Jenny, and Courteney, and Lisa? So that made it kind of difficult to go to work because I had to pretend that I didn't have these crushes."

Regarding his crush on Aniston, Perry stated in his book Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing that he had asked her out but she had declined. But still, he couldn't stop crushing. The actor said:

"Fairly early in the making of 'Friends' I realized that I was still crushing badly on Jennifer Aniston. Our hellos and goodbyes became awkward. And then I'd ask myself, How long can I look at her? Is three seconds too long?"

So how did Matthew Perry get over his crush on the Murder Mystery star? The actor stated that the combo of Aniston having zero romantic interest in him plus her dating Brad Pitt dissipated any crush he had on her.

But what happened when he got to know about Schwimmer and Aniston's crushes on each other?

During an interview on SiriusXM's The Jess Cagle Show, Julia Cunningham, the co-host, wondered if Matthew Perry's crush on Jennifer Aniston made him seethe in anger upon hearing about Schwimmer's crush on her. Fortunately, there wasn't any anger in Perry's heart.

Here's how the short conversation went:

Julia Cunningham: "I was like, 'Was Matthew seething with anger on the set of the reunion hearing about this unrequited love?'"

Matthew Perry: "Oh, I knew. I knew. Yeah, no, I knew what was going on. And eventually, my crush dissipated."

At the 2021 Friends reunion, David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston admitted to having crushes on each other.

The Ross actor said, "The first season, we– I had a major crush on Jen." To this Aniston replied, "It was reciprocated."

However, Schwimmer said that they never actually dated. He said, "At some point, we were both crushing hard on each other. But it was like two ships passing because one of us was always in a relationship. So we never crossed that boundary. We respected that." Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer are all reportedly single now.

Friends is streaming on Netflix.
