Matthew Perry Admits He Once Beat Up Justin Trudeau
You'll remember Matthew Perry as a bit of a wimp, if his Friends character was anything to go by.But in real life (as a kid at least), turns out the actor was pretty scrappy - and his opponents were famous, too.
Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, the playwright and comedian admitted to "beating up" the Canadian Prime Minister back at school.He grew up in Canada (who knew?!) and described himself as half-Canadian - which explains the seemingly random link.
Perry said: "“I think he was excelling in a sport, so it was pure jealousy, and we beat him up,”
“That would never happen to Donald Trump, you’d be in the stockade right now, you’d be in Russia somewhere, ” Kimmel said.
Perry, a few years older than Trudeau, said he wasn’t bragging about it, that he was “a stupid kid.”
What's more, the actor’s mother, Suzanne Perry, was a former press secretary to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.
Perry joked that the incident sparked Trudeau’s eventual leadership of their home country.
“I think it was rather instrumental in him going to such big heights and becoming the Prime Minister,” Perry said.
Kimmel then asked if the two ever kept contact. Could his response BE any more like Chandler?
“I feel shame, I don’t want to think about it.”
