Friends have given us various memorable moments that fans enjoy to date. One of the most loved and cherished moments was when Chandler Bing aka Matthew Perry got married to Monica Geller played by Courteney Cox. The chemistry between the two onscreen, really made the fans feel as though they were real-life couples.
Talking about the same, did you know Matthew was once claimed to have real feelings for the Bedtime Stories actress. Shocking right? But that’s absolutely true!
