Matthew Perry Apologized After Asking Keanu Reeves Why 'Still Walks Among Us'

There was backlash after outlets published an excerpt from Perry's upcoming memoir, "Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing," in which he discusses the death of his friend actor River Phoenix in 1993 and mentions another actor, Keanu Reeves.
Could he be any more sorry? “Friends” star Matthew Perry now has apologized for passages in his forthcoming memoir that put down fellow actor — and beloved internet boyfriend — Keanu Reeves, whom he says he’s a big fan of.

In his book “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing,” the 53-year-old actor goes into detail about his decades-long drug and alcohol addiction and its repercussions. He also name-checks several luminary colleagues and friends who died of overdoses during his career, namely the 1993 death of close friend River Phoenix (the “Stand By Me” actor was also Reeves’ best friend) and the overdose deaths of comedian Chris Farley and Oscar winner Heath Ledger.
“River was a beautiful man, inside and out — too beautiful for this world, it turned out. It always seems to be the really talented guys who go down,” Perry wrote. “Why is it that the original thinkers like River Phoenix and Heath Ledger die, but Keanu Reeves still walks among us”

Matthew Perry apologized to Keanu Reeves. “I’m actually a big fan of Keanu. I just chose a random name, my mistake,” he said in a statement to People. ” I apologize. I should have used my own name instead.”
Reeves is cited again in the upcoming book when Perry writes about the death of comedian Chris Farley. "His disease had progressed faster than mine had. (Plus, I had a healthy fear of the word 'heroin,' a fear we did not share)," Perry writes. "I punched a hole through Jennifer Aniston's dressing room wall when I found out. Keanu Reeves walks among us." is a website that provides you with Entertainment updates and creative ideas to brighten your day.
