Matthew Perry apologizes for accidentally wishing death on Keanu Reeves: 'My Mistake'
Friends actor Matthew Perry has an autobiography coming out. In an excerpt that has been blowing up the internet, he appeared to have a sad that fellow actor Keanu Reeves wasn't dead yet. In a follow-up statement, Perry says that was a whoopsie. Nothing personal against Keanu.
In the upcoming book "Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing," Perry had this to say:
Why is it that the original thinkers like River Phoenix and Heath Ledger die, but Keanu Reeves still walks among us?
I'm a child of the 80s who was a film nerd in the 90s, and for the life of me couldn't tell you anything River Phoenix did other than overdose outside of The Viper Room. And while his Joker was okay and 10 Things I Hate About You is underrated, I think the Health Ledger adoration is a bit much.
But to feel bad that they're gone and Keanu Reeves still walks among us? Let's be clear, this is the guy Perry wishes (or wished) dead:
Happy Birthday Keanu Reeves.
I could've posted any amount of movie clips of Keanu being heroic in any number of films. But here he is riding on the subway and giving up his seat for a pregnant lady. Sometimes real life is better than fiction. pic.twitter.com/wXLXNRvlhl

Actor Keanu Reeves is being praised for how he takes pictures with women. He hovers his hands behind their back without touching them. Some fans joke he tries to avoid becoming a part of the #MeToo movement and others praise him for respecting personal space. What do you think? pic.twitter.com/zplEOqFuH8

Keanu Reeves was on my flight from London to NYC today. A young boy asked for an autograph at baggage & then began to fire off a series of rapid-fire questions. Keanu happily responded to every single one… pic.twitter.com/T7m7PciL5C

Perry has since clarified that it was all a big misunderstanding. Keanu Reeves was an actor chosen at random. And the book went through every stage of editing without someone saying "really, dude?"
I'm actually a big fan of Keanu. I just chose a random name, my mistake. I apologize. I should have used my own name instead
