In case you forgot this ever happened (like I did), Matthew Perry and Julia Roberts dated in the ’90s. Not only that, but Perry was the one who dumped Roberts at the time after only a few months of dating.

Now, in his new memoir, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, the 53-year-old Friends actor has candidly written about how his own mental health and self-esteem issues lead to him breaking up with Roberts, writing that he felt like he would “never be enough” for the Oscar-winning actress.

The pair’s relationship began ahead of Roberts making her famous cameo on Friends in 1996. Instead of going through producers, Perry reached out to Roberts directly asking her to make an appearance on the sitcom, to which she personally responded she would if he “wrote her a paper on quantum physics.” Perry did just that before beginning to try to “woo” Roberts by sending her flowers and sweet messages.

“Not only did Julia agree to do the show,” he wrote in an excerpt of his memoir published by the Times UK, “but she also sent me a gift: bagels — lots and lots of bagels. … I did let her in, both figuratively and literally, and a relationship began.”

However, he wrote that quickly “dating Julia Roberts had been too much” for him. “I had been constantly certain that she was going to break up with me,” he wrote, adding he felt the Pretty Woman star was “slumming it” by dating him.

“Why would she not? I was not enough; I could never be enough; I was broken, bent, unlovable. So instead of facing the inevitable agony of losing her, I broke up with the beautiful and brilliant Julia Roberts,” he added, saying he can’t “begin to describe the look of confusion on her face” after he did so.

During this time, Perry was battling drug and alcohol addiction, which he says resulted in him going to rehab twice during Friends‘ decade-long run, including immediately after his character, Chandler, married Monica — one of the show’s most beloved moments. “[I was] at the height of my highest point in ‘Friends,’ the highest point in my career, the iconic moment on the iconic show,” he told the New York Times, adding his “exhausting” opioid addiction ruined his ability to embrace his time on Friends.
