In reality, at least during the first few months of filming the series Friends, the actors Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc, reportedly did not have a good first impression of each other. At least this was revealed by Paul LeBlanc, Matt's father, who confessed that his son hated working with his co-star.

Do Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry hate each other?
Despite the sayings of Paul LeBlanc, known for selling interviews in which he claims things about his famous son's life, there is no evidence that Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry ended up at odds with one another.
In 2016, LeBlanc said that he had a good relationship with Perry, whom he "knew very well" during the 10 years of production of Friends. "I love him. It is incredible, it really is."
