The 2024 Golden Globes mark Jennifer’s first red carpet appearance since the death of her Friends co-star Matthew Perry. Matthew passed away of “acute effects of ketamine” at the age of 54 in October. After the actor’s shocking death, Jennifer mourned Matthew in a heartbreaking tribute that she shared on Instagram on November 15.
“Oh boy this one has cut deep,” Jennifer wrote. “Having to say ‘goodbye’ to our Matty has been an insane wave of emotions that I’ve never experienced before. We all experience loss at some point in our lives. Loss of life or loss of love. Being able to really SIT in this grief allows you to feel the moments of joy and gratitude for having loved someone that deep. And we loved him deeply.”
“We were always the six of us,” Jennifer continued, referencing the core Friends cast. “This was a chosen family that forever changed the course of who we were and what our path was going to be. For Matty, he KNEW he loved to make people laugh. As he said himself, if he didn’t hear the ‘laugh,’ he thought he was going to die. His life literally depended on it. And boy, did he succeed in doing just that. He made all of us laugh. And laugh hard.”
On October 30, Jennifer, David Schwimmer, Matt Leblanc, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox provided a statement to PEOPLE in response to the news of Perry’s death. “We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew,” the actors said in their statement. “We were more than just castmates. We are a family.”
