For many years, fans did not know what caused the breakup of celebrities.
Julia Roberts and Matthew Perry regularly fall into the list of unusual couples, the existence of which you did not even suspect.
However, if now it’s hard to imagine that Julia Roberts met with the star of the series «Friends», then in the 1990s, many believed that lovers are ideal for each other.
For many years, fans did not know what caused celebrities to break up until Matthew gave an interview to The Times.
According to Matthew, he was the initiator of parting. It turns out that in 1995, the main role performer in the film «Pretty Woman» was proposed to play in one of the episodes of «Friends».
Roberts agreed but provided that her character should be connected with the character of Perry.
The producers of the sitcom told the actor about the requirements of the ascending star, so he sent her a bouquet of scarlet roses with a note: «The only thing that excites more than the possibility of your presence in the series is the awareness that I can now give you flowers».
At that moment, Julia starred in France. But the distance did not prevent young people from quickly finding a common language and beginning to correspond.
The three-month-old facsimile novel ended when the actress returned to Los Angeles. According to Matthew in his autobiographical book, they allegedly began to meet before Roberts began to shoot the show.
Despite the feelings, the actor decided to part with his lover because of his own uncertainty.
«Meeting Julia Roberts was too difficult. I was sure that she was going to leave me. Why not? I thought it was not good and attractive enough. I parted with the magnificent and brilliant Julia Roberts so that she would not abandon me first», he explained.
