Matthew Perry has finally opened up about his split from Julia Roberts. In a recent interview with E! News, the former Friends star revealed the reason behind their breakup.
The couple, who met in 1995, had a whirlwind romance that captured the attention of the media and fans alike. They first crossed paths at a Los Angeles restaurant where Perry was having dinner with a mutual friend. Roberts, who was already a Hollywood sensation at the time, caught Perry's eye immediately.
Their relationship quickly blossomed, and they were soon inseparable. However, after just a few short months, the couple decided to call it quits. Fans were left wondering what went wrong with the seemingly perfect duo.
In the interview with E! News, Perry shared that the intense media attention played a significant role in their breakup. He explained that dating Roberts meant constantly being under the spotlight, which became overwhelming for him.
Perry revealed that the paparazzi followed them relentlessly, and the constant media scrutiny took a toll on their relationship. They couldn't go out for a simple dinner without being bombarded by photographers, which put immense pressure on them as a couple.
He also mentioned that the scrutiny extended beyond their outings, as the media would speculate and spread rumors about their relationship, causing unnecessary strain and stress.
Perry further elaborated that he wasn't used to living his life in the public eye to that extent. Being constantly in the limelight started to affect him personally, and he realized he needed a break from the chaos that came with dating such a high-profile celebrity like Roberts.
Ultimately, the pressures of fame and media attention created a wedge between the two, leading to their decision to end the relationship. Perry made it clear that the breakup was mutual, and there was no animosity between them.
The actor emphasized that he holds no ill feelings towards Roberts and that they have remained friends despite their romantic past. He acknowledged that they had a great time together, but the circumstances surrounding their relationship just became too much to handle.
In retrospect, Perry admitted that he was not prepared to handle the level of attention that came with dating a Hollywood superstar like Roberts. Despite the challenges they faced, he looks back on their time together with fondness and cherishes the memories they created.
With this candid revelation, Perry has shed light on the real reason behind his breakup with Julia Roberts, providing closure for fans who have been curious for years.
