Matthew Perry Wasn’t a Good ‘Friend’ to Justin Trudeau in the 5th Grade (Video)

The actor says he beat up the Canadian Prime Minister when they were kids

“Friends” actor Matthew Perry wasn’t there for Justin Trudeau. In fact, it was quite the opposite.

In an interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night, Perry admitted that he and a friend beat up the future Canadian Prime Minister when they were in grade school.

Perry said that he was a couple years ahead of Trudeau and that when he was in fifth grade, he and a friend bullied him.

“I have a story about him that I’m not proud of, ” he said. “We actually beat up Justin Trudeau.”

Perry is unsure what the reasoning was, since the event took place over 30 years ago.

“I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren’t, so it was pure jealousy,” he said. Perry added that it was likely Trudeau was the “only” kid in school they could beat up.

Trudeau’s father, Pierre Trudeau, was the Prime Minister of Canada at the time.

However, Perry feels shame for his actions, saying that it was the work of a stupid kid making a stupid mistake.

“I’m not bragging about this. This is terrible, and I was a stupid kid,” he added. “I feel shame. I don’t want to think about it.”
