Matthew Perry’s final known conversation has been laid bare in the wake of the actor’s untimely passing.
The 54-year-old was laid to rest at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles six days after he was found dead in the jacuzzi at his LA home.
A day before his death, the Friends star was seen speaking to a mystery woman at the Hotel Bel-Air and enjoying lunch.
The woman has now been identified as 25-year-old model and entertainment reporter Athenna Crosby who has since the tragic news broken her silence.
Speaking to DailyMail.com, Crosby said Perry talked about how he wanted to make a biopic and was full of plans for his future. She also said that he looked very healthy and that he abstained from drinking alcohol and drinks containing caffeine.
“I don’t think he had any desire to get back into drugs and alcohol. I think he was so proud to finally be over that hump because he openly struggled with addiction for decades, and he was in and out of rehab as recently as the last couple of years,” she said.
“He was relieved that he finally felt it was behind him, and he was trying to do everything to fight that. While we were having lunch, he refused to touch the drink menu. He was saying that he’s gotten really into fitness and pickleball and he wants to get all his friends into it.”
Crosby went on to suggest that Perry appeared to be “really serious” about becoming a “whole new man.”
“He was a little shy to order a Diet Coke because that’s caffeine, and it’s one more thing that some people might struggle with,” she continued.
“But then eventually he said, ‘I’m actually doing really good, and this is just a little treat to myself.’ He was concerned about anything that could compromise his health. That’s something that he took really, really seriously.”
