Matthew Perry has been making his rounds in the spotlight recently with questionable appearances that have fans and other celebs worried for him. But even more recently he's been making headlines for having unreciprocated feelings for former co-star Courteney Cox. Matthew Perry’s exes are far & few between but none are Courteney Cox.
Since his rise to fame in the mid-'90s, Matthew Perry has had a total of 8 public relationships, a list that isn't lacking some big Hollywood names. While a lot of them were longterm and spanned basically his entire career, sources say that "Matthew's always been in love with Courteney Cox."
Could it be possible that he harbored feelings for the Friends star during all these relationships?
Julia Roberts (1995-1996)
Julia Roberts and Matthew Perry started their relationship while he was still fresh into his new fame lifestyle. Friends had just taken off and this was his first public relationship.
The two actors dated from 1995-1996 after Roberts guest-starred in a 1994 episode of Friends.
Yasmine Bleeth (1996)
After his public breakup with Roberts, Perry almost immediately began publicly dating actress Yasmine Bleeth. She was known primarily for her role on Baywatch in the 90s. As of now, she's retired completely from acting.
Their relationship only lasted a few months.
Neve Campbell (1998)
Perry took a break from public dating after his break-up with Bleeth, only stepping out with fellow Canadian actress Neve Campbell in 1998.
Their relationship, however, was shortlived and didn't even reach the last year of the decade.
Maeve Quinlan (2002-2003)
Maeve Quinlan was Perry's first long term girlfriend after his breakup with Julia Roberts. This soap opera actress and Perry dated from 2002-2003 before calling it quits.
Heather Graham (2002-2003)
Lack of public appearances can't put a specific date on Perry's relationship with actress Heather Graham but sources peg their relationship to have overlapped with his fling with Maeve Quinlan.
Lauren Graham (2003)
Gilmore Girls actress Lauren Graham and Perry had a short relationship back in 2003. Although their romance quickly died out there seemed to be no bad blood. The two starred in the movie Birds of America together in 2008.
Rachel Dunn (2003-2005)
Rachel Dunn was Perry's first girlfriend that wasn't used to the spotlight. His two-year relationship with the American volleyball player was known for their gaping age difference of fourteen years.
Lizzy Caplan (2006-2012)
Matthew Perry's most recent relationship was also his longest. He spent six years with Mean Girls alumni Lizzy Caplan. It was reported that their breakup was because of Perry's unwillingness to settle down.
