Matthew Perry laid to rest as Friends cast attend private funeral

The actor was laid to rest in a Los Angeles cemetery

Matthew Perry has been laid to rest at a private funeral attended by his Friends co-stars.

The actor, who passed away on 28 October at the age of 54, was buried at Los Angeles cemetery on Friday (3 November), according to US media reports.

The service, which reportedly took place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills, was attended only by close friends and family.

All five of his Friends co-stars - Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc - were said to be in attendance.

The cemetery in which he was buried is also the final resting place of other Hollywood A-Listers, including Carrie Fisher, Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor.

It's also a short distance away from the Warner Brothers studio where Friends was filmed between 1994 and 2004.

It was this show that made Perry - who played Chandler Bing - a household name and led him onto other projects including Fools Rush In, The Whole Nine Yards, and 17 Again.

Perry was found unresponsive in a hot tub in his Los Angeles home just over a week ago.

A cause of death has been deferred pending a toxicology report. The initial autopsy produced inconclusive results.

Earlier this week, his Friends co-stars issued a joint statement expressing their grief at the sudden passing of their friend.

It read: "We were more than just cast mates. We are a family.

"There is so much to say, but right now, we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.

"For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty’s family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world."

Perry's death came just a year after he published his memoir Friends, Lovers and The Big Terrible Thing.

In the book, he opened up about his struggles with addiction to prescription painkillers and alcohol.

At the time of its publication, Perry had disclosed that he had been sober for around 18 months.

On the day of his funeral, a foundation was set up in Perry's name to support people struggling with addiction.

The Matthew Perry Foundation's website says it will 'will honour his legacy and be guided by his own words and experiences and driven by his passion for making a difference in as many lives as possible'.

Also included on a site is a quote from Perry in which he said he hoped that he would be remembered primarily for helping others, rather than for his work playing Chandler Bing on Friends.

When officers responded to the actor's home in Los Angeles on 28 October, there were no drugs at the scene.
