Matthew Perry has called off his engagement to Molly Hurwitz just seven months after proposing to her, he has confirmed.

The 51 year old admitted "sometimes things just don't work out" in a short statement as he confirmed the pair's sad split.

Friends star Matthew proposed to 29 year old Molly in November 2020, but has now revealed they have parted ways after almost three years together.

He told People: "Sometimes things just don't work out and this is one of them, I wish Molly the best."

The announcement comes just months after he confirmed the engagement to the same publication, saying at the time: "I decided to get engaged.

"Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time."

Matthew's engagement to Molly was the closest the Chandler Bing actor has got to making it down the aisle, but he has dated a number of high profile actresses including Julia Roberts, Neve Campbell and Mean Girls star Lizzy Caplan.

The sad split comes days after the director of Friends: The Reunion jumped to defend Matthew after viewers voiced concerns about his appearance and speech during the one-off show.

Some fans claimed Matthew, 51, was slurring his words and appeared groggy as he reunited with his former co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matt Le Blanc and David Schwimmer during the special which aired last week.

However, it was soon revealed that Matthew had undergone emergency dental work just hours before filming the show, which resulted in him struggling to speak clearly.

Ben Winston, the brains behind the record-breaking reunion, has now spoken out on how it was to work alongside the actor.

Speaking about Matthew on The Hollywood Reporter's TV's Top 5 podcast, Ben said: "He was great. People can sometimes just be unkind. I wish they weren't.

"I loved working with him. He's a brilliantly funny man and I thought he had some great one-liners in the show.

"I felt just happy and lucky to be in his presence and directing him on something like this."

Producer of the original series of Friends, which ran for 10 years, Kevin S Bright spoke separately to The Hollywood Reporter about Matthew.

He said: "I talked to him. It was great seeing him again. And what people say is what people say. I don't have any to say about that, except it was great to see him.

"And I think he's very funny on the show. But yes, I think he's OK. He seems stronger and better since the last time I saw him, and excited about going forward."
