Matthew Perry has removed controversial remarks about Keanu Reeves from future editions of his memoir
Matthew Perry wants to mend his relationship with Keanu Reeves.
The “Friends” star appeared at the LA Times Festival of Books on Saturday and told the audience at the panel that she plans to remove Reeves’ name from future 2022 editions of her memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and Something Big Scary.”
The memoir is candid about Perry’s struggles with substance abuse and addiction, but the actor faced backlash last fall for making references to Reeves that some found offensive, including in a segment about a friend’s death. River Phoenix 1993
“River was a beautiful person inside and out – too beautiful for this world. It always seems like the really talented guys are falling,” Perry wrote. Original thinkers like River Phoenix and Heath Ledger die, but is Keanu Reeves still with us?
Perry previously apologized for the comment, saying in a statement to People in October 2022 that she was a “huge fan” of Reeves and chose the “random name” in the prose. “I apologize. I should have used my name instead,” he added in the statement.
On Saturday, Perry addressed Reeves again, this time telling the audience, “I said something stupid. It was stupid,” writes the LA Times.
“I got his name because I live on the same street,” Perry said at the panel, noting that “all future versions of the book will not have his name.”
Although Perry has apologized to Reeves in the past, she said Saturday that she has yet to apologize to the “Matrix” star.
“I’m sorry if I ran into a guy. It was just stupid,” Perry concluded.
