Valerie Bertinelli was married to Eddie Van Halen when they had a brief connection.

Matthew Perry and Valerie Bertinelli went from costars to quick flings after working on Sydney.

In his 2022 memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing, the late Friends actor revealed he made out with the actress secretly while her then-husband, Eddie Van Halen, was a few feet away from them.

"It was happening — maybe she felt the same way I did," he wrote. "I told her I had thought about doing that for a long time, and she had said it right back to me."

She became the first-known girlfriend of Matthew Perry in Hollywood.

Perry had his first official relationship when he was 18 when he started dating Carrie Fisher's half-sister, Tricia Fisher. Their relationship progressed from emotional to physical after she made the first move and did things on his bed.

Despite their deep connection, they called it quits afterward — though they reconnected a few years later again.

"Years later, Tricia and I would date again while Friends was at its peak," Perry revealed. "She didn't abandon me, but old fears crept up, and I ended the relationship."

Gwyneth Paltrow

Stewart slammed Gwyneth Paltrow in the past for venturing outside of Hollywood.

In the memoir, Perry disclosed another make-out session with Gwyneth Paltrow "in a closet" before Friends aired in 1994. He told GQ that he hoped she would find the experience a cute story because "it would be bad" if the Iron Man actress hated him.

As he wished, Paltrow revealed on Instagram that she was always happy to see Perry, although they drifted apart after staying friends for a while.

"We were both there for most of the summer doing plays," she recalled. He was so funny and so sweet and so much fun to be with. We drove out to swim in creeks, had beers in the local college bar, kissed in a field of long grass. It was a magical summer. He had shot the pilot of Friends, but it had not aired yet. He was nervous, hoping his big break was just around the corner. It was."

"Dating Julia Roberts had been too much for me," Perry said. "I had been constantly certain that she was going to break up with me. Why would she not? I was not enough; I could never be enough; I was broken, bent, unloveable."

Amid his struggles with alcohol, the 17 Again actor found solace when he dated Gabrielle Allan. He reportedly realized he was obsessed with the substance after they watched a magic show in University City and went back to her house.

"Gaby didn't have any alcohol at home, which is, of course, totally fine, but for me, at the age of twenty-one, all of a sudden this creeping feeling came over me for the first time. I felt my blood on fire for more to drink," Perry continued.
