“We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew,” they said. “We were more than just cast mates. We are a family.”

The statement was signed by Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, and Matt LeBlanc.

Perry’s friends in real life, and on television, expressed their shock at the news of his sudden and unexpected death.

“There is so much to say, but right now we’re going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss,” they wrote.

They promised fans they would return to pay tribute to Perry when they’ve had a chance to process the profound loss they are now facing.

Perry was found dead in his Los Angeles home Saturday, at the age of 54. Initial reports suggested he drowned in his jacuzzi, but the famous actor’s official cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

An autopsy has been conducted, and the results will be shared pending the results of a toxicology report, according to TMZ. (RELATED: Hollywood Mourns The Death Of ‘Friends’ Star Matthew Perry)
