Sorry, Matt LeBlanc And Matthew Perry.

Jennifer Aniston at The 20th Annual Critics Choice Movie Awards in Hollywood

Listen, they’ll be friends forever…just some friends are closer friends, ya know?

Ex-costars Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry didn’t make the guest list for Jennifer Aniston‘s wedding to Justin Theroux. But hey, NO BIG. They aren’t phased by it like, at all.

“I think they’re a great couple. I think she’s happy. And that’s all I care about is that Jen’s happy,” LeBlanc, 48, told PEOPLE on Monday at a Television Critics Association press event in Los Angeles. “If she wanted me there, I would have been there.”

Woah, passive aggressive much, Matt LeBlanc? He continued:

“I missed when she married Brad [Pitt],” he said. “I was in Austria working. She called me, and she was like, ‘You’re really not coming to my wedding?’ And I was like, ‘I asked them if they could change the schedule. I would fly and clap and fly out.’ And they said, ‘We can’t do it. It’s too tight.’ It was a small-budget movie in Austria you’ve never heard of. Probably should have left anyway, but s— happens. What are you going to do?”

Aw, the sad taste of regret. Especially because Lisa Kudrow was there, and of course Courteney Cox served as MOH. Matt LeBlanc has a less awkward outlook.

“Jen’s like my little sister,” he said. “Courteney [Cox] and Lisa [Kudrow] are like my big sisters, but Jen’s like my little sister. Matthew’s like my little brother, and David [Schwimmer]’s like my big brother. That’s how it all broke down. And it’s literally just like chronological.”

Zzzz. We get it, you’re close . Perry, 45, also wished the couple well, and said he was happy Aniston, 46, and Theroux, 44, were able to pull off the surprise wedding.

“It was a surprise to me as well,” he said. “They’re a lovely couple, and I’m happy for them.”

Asked if he was sorry he missed the wedding, the star of CBS’s The Odd Couple replied: “I wasn’t invited. So what can you do?”

I dunno, maybe not make weird statements about being disappointed? Y’all sound like babies.

Matthew Perry Interview: Aging Well, Second Dates and the FUNNY

2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour - CBS, CW And Showtime Party

Chandler Bing FOREVER!

Matthew Perry will always be one of my favorite “Friends,” but I also think it’s interesting how each actor from the hit show does with their life now that they’re almost twenty years out.  Perry himself answered some tough questions about his life in an interview with DailyMail. The publication reports:

On being recognized:Friends definitely had that magic attached to it. It had great casting, great directing, great writing. It hasn’t been off the air since we finished shooting it, and now, with Netflix, it’s getting a new audience and I am getting recognised in the street by people who weren’t even alive when we actually shot the show … who are very confused … by how old I look.”

He’s addicted to humor to a fault: “I come from a funny family, and I’ve always been more comfortable in an atmosphere that was lighthearted. But I got to a point where I was kind of addicted to it. I always wanted to fill the silence with a joke — and that’s not an especially healthy way to be. It was like that going out with girls. If you made a joke on the first and second date she would love it. But if you were still making jokes on the seventh date, she’d be saying: ‘One more joke and I’m going to kill you!’”

Still looking for love? “I love children. I have a lot of much younger brothers and sisters so I was always babysitting as a kid. I have godchildren, whom I love, and I look forward to being a father. I think I’ll be wonderful at it. There’s just one important step to be taken first. Like being able to go on a second date …”

Overcoming his struggles: “I’m a little older, a little wiser. I have spent a lot of time trying to get centered in my life and to be a little less anxious and nervous, and I think I’m succeeding. Yes, it’s been well-documented that I’ve had my own troubles in life, and you can’t help but use those as a springboard to try to become better or you sort of get lost in the darkness of it all. My life is a lot less about myself now. I get much more of a kick out of helping people than out of anything else I do, including acting. So out of darkness comes light.”

We all know about Perry’s struggle with substance abuse, but it seems like he’s got a pretty good handle on his own limitations and how to keep himself afloat. Now, if we can only get him back on TV again, AM I RIGHT?

Matthew Perry lands the cover of People Magazine, talks about his struggles with drugs and alcohol.

Matthew Perry lands the cover of People Magazine this week, with the title “My Life as an Addict.” Matthew, 43, has been clean and sober for years. He publicly battled addiction problems at the height of his ‘Friends’ fame in the late 90’s. A couple of weeks ago Matthew was honored at the White House for his work advocating drug courts, which use rehabilitation instead of incarceration for addicts.

Matthew is back in the news regarding his addiction issues, because the actor has donated his Malibu home to serve as a men’s sober living facility called Perry House. Here’s more from People:

For a decade, Matthew Perry was living an actor’s dream: he had an iconic role as sardonic Chandler Bing on the beloved No. 1 sitcom Friends and a salary that reached $1 million an episode.

But behind the scenes, Perry was struggling. “I had a big problem with alcohol and pills and I couldn’t stop,” he tells PEOPLE in an exclusive new cover story. “Eventually things got so bad that I couldn’t hide it, and then everybody knew.”

After a harrowing, years-long battle with addictions to alcohol and Vicodin, Perry, 43, finally got sober. “Something clicked,” he says. “You have to want the help.” And he’s now dedicated to helping other addicts. He turned his former Malibu beach home into a men’s sober living facility called Perry House, and he’s becoming a passionate advocate for drug courts, through which non-violent substance abusers receive treatment instead of incarceration for their offenses.

Perry, who recently starred on the sitcom Go On and appears in recurring role on The Good Wife, says that sobriety and helping others have led him to finally find “true happiness” in his life. “The interesting reason that I can be so helpful to people now is that I screwed up so often,” he says. “It’s nice for people to see that somebody who once struggled in their life is not struggling any more.”

I wish that Matthew could find success – equal to ‘Friends.’ I’ve always liked him, and it’s sad he’s never really been able to find fame outside of ‘Friends.’ I never watched ‘Go On’ but given the fact that it was canceled, I’m thinking I didn’t really miss much. Maybe he should head to cable TV and do something different….darker.

PHOTOS: Monica and Chandler reunite!

These pictures just make me smile. Makes me remember the good ol’ days when Monica and Chandler were the cutest couple on TV (much cuter than Ross and Rachel, if you ask me.)

Courteney Cox is lending a helping hand to her former ‘Friends’ husband, Matthew Perry.

Courteney will appear on Perry’s (failing) sitcom, ‘Go On’, in a special April episode.

In a last-ditch effort to shore up his sinking sit­com “Go On,” the beauty will appear with Perry in a special April episode, marking the duo’s first small-screen reunion since “Friends” ended its Emmy-winning 10-season run in May 2004.

“Courteney will play a character who is set up on a date with the grieving widower played by Matthew,” revealed a friend of the stars. “She’s scheduled for only one epi­sode so far, but if viewers tune in, Courteney could be brought back for more. She’s throwing Matt a Hail Mary pass to save his show, and he knows it.”

Perry has struggled to recapture the success he had on “Friends.” And, at first, it looked like “Go On” could be a hit. When it debuted in the fall of 2012, almost 10 million households tuned in to watch his character Ryan King deal with the oddball members of his grief support group following the sudden death of his wife.

“It was considered a great success, but it had a strong lead-in from ‘The Voice,’” said the source, referring to NBC’s super-popular singing com­petition. “Once ‘The Voice’ finished its season, ‘Go On’ slid badly in the ratings and has been going downhill ever since.

“Matt is desperately hoping that Courteney’s appearance will pull his show out of its death spi­ral and breathe new life into it.”

Matthew Tweeted the picture above, saying “Yayyyyy! #GoOn”. Courteney tweeted the picture below, writing “My first box husband.”
