Friends and Colleagues Mourn Performer Matthew Perry. Matthew Perry’s net worth exceeds that of most of his Friends co-stars.
Following the tragic demise of the 54-year-old comedian on Saturday, bereaved admirers and friends in Hollywood have paid tribute to him with heartfelt remarks on social media.
Nevertheless, many were astounded by Matthew’s net worth when it was revealed that he was the third wealthiest member of the Friends cast.
Recently, the net worths of the members of the Friends cast were disclosed. With $258 million (£212 million), Jennifer Aniston ranks first on the list due to her prosperous filmography after the conclusion of the Friends series.
Matthew Perry, who surpasses co-stars Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc, ranks third with an outstanding net worth of $102 million (£84 million). Courteney Cox is at number two with $129 million (£106 million).
The remuneration per episode for the Friends cast increased from five figures in 1994 to six figures by the show’s final season, with each star receiving an astounding $1 million (£820,000) per episode. Additionally, the Hollywood Reporter reports that each quintet member was compensated over $2 million (£1.6 million) for the 2021 one-hour reunion program.
After the conclusion of the critically acclaimed sitcom Friends, Matthew, who portrayed Chandler Bing, appeared in several films and television series.
While remaining an employee of the program, Matthew secured roles on The West Wing, for which he was nominated for an Emmy, and appeared in the 1997 romantic comedy Fools Rush In, which grossed over $1 million. Even better, he could film the movie between the second and third seasons of Friends.
