Among the many touching tributes to Matthew Perry following his apparent death by drowning is a special message from Salma Hayek, who co-starred with Perry in the 1997 film Fools rush. The film, about a one-night stand that results in a pregnancy, wasn’t a smash hit, but the two men had great chemistry and, judging by Hayek’s post, plenty of affection for each other. one for the other.
On Monday, October 30, Hayek wrote on Instagram, “Two days ago I woke up to the shocking news that Matthew Perry was no longer with us. It took me a few days to deal with this deep sadness. There is a special bond that is created when you share dreams with someone and work together to make them come true. I was very moved last year when Matthew shared on his Instagram Stories how much he loved “Fools Rush In” and how much he thought the film we made together was probably his best film. “
“Over the years, he and I found ourselves looking back on this significant period of our lives with a deep sense of nostalgia and gratitude,” Hayek continued. “My friend, you left far too soon, but I will continue to cherish your stupidity, your perseverance and your beautiful heart. Farewell, sweet Matthew, we will never forget you.”
