In his memoir Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing, Perry opened up about his two-month '90s romance with the Oscar winner, which began after Roberts agreed to guest star on Friends under one condition.
Perry wrote that the Pretty Woman actress "would only do the show if she could be in my story line," adding that he "had to woo her." To do so, he sent Roberts three dozen roses and a note that read, "The only thing more exciting than the prospect of you doing the show is that I finally have an excuse to send you flowers."
But their romance was ultimately shortlived because "dating Julia Roberts had been too much for me," Perry admitted. "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, unlovable. So instead of facing the inevitable agony of losing her, I broke up with the beautiful and brilliant Julia Roberts."
