Perry's insecurities ended the relationship

From his experience in Friends Roberts only has “good thoughts and feelings.” When she accepted the role, Chandler's actor sent her a bouquet of flowers. From then on she began her courtship. He tells it himself in his biography, Friends, lovers and that terrible thingpublished last year: “I sent her three dozen red roses and the card said, 'The only thing more exciting than the prospect of you doing the show is that I finally have an excuse to send you flowers.'

In this same book, the artist reflected on the end of his relationship with the actress of Pretty Woman, with whom he broke up for fear that she would abandon him. The “insecurities” always negatively affected her relationships, and proof of this was what happened to her with Roberts.

Dating Julia Roberts had been too much for me. I had always been sure that she was going to break up with me […]. “So instead of facing the inevitable agony of losing her, I broke up with the beautiful and brilliant Julia Roberts,” Perry wrote in her post.

“I break up with everyone because I am mortally afraid that they will discover that I am not enough, that I don't matter and that I'm too needy, and that they will break up with me and then that will annihilate me, because I will have to take drugs and that will kill me,” he said.
