Matthew Perry knew Jennifer Aniston fancied Friends co-star while filming

Hollywood actor Matthew Perry has revealed that he knew his Friends co-stars Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer were "sweet on each other" while filming.

The Chandler Bing star had previously revealed during the Friends reunion that Jennifer had "special feelings" for David while making the hit American comedy.

Jennifer and David, who played on-off couple Rachel and Ross, also admitted to having crushes on one another, but never acting on their feelings.

Matthew has since admitted that once he knew Jennifer and David were "sweet on one another", his longtime crush on Jennifer "dissipated."

Speaking on The Jess Cale Show recently, the star said that he "knew what was going on", between Jennifer and David, with Matthew saying: "At first it was just like, she would walk in and I’d be like: 'Hey, good to see you!' and I’d go to my dressing room and I’d just go: 'Oh, I’ll never be able to be with her.'"

He added that he "did at one point just go: 'All right, that’s enough. That’s enough. It’s been enough now'".

Matthew's revelation follows the release of his new memoir Friends, Loves and The Big Terrible Thing, which focuses on his life pre and post Friends.

In the memoir, he also revealed that he asked co-star Jennifer out on a date before they appeared on the show together, but that the actress politely declined.

However, the two formed a close bond, with Jennifer confronting and supporting the actor when he became addicted to alcohol.

Speaking on Good Morning America, Matthew explained that she told him that she could "smell alcohol on his breath", and that he was grateful to her for reaching out to help him.

"I wasn't in a position to stop, you know?" said Matthew.

"And that's what addiction is. But she was the one that reached out the most, you know. I'm really grateful to her for that."

Speaking about that time in his book, he also wrote: "In nature, when a penguin is injured, the other penguins group around it and prop it up until it's better.

"This is what my co-stars on Friends did for me."
