It’s frankly quite intense, and Perry’s claim was made in his New York time interviewer that he didn’t use a ghostwriter for his memoirs, teasing a powerful truth: Perry is about to release a book that is very honest. And now that it’s out, we can confirm: This book is very honest!

So, for your viewing pleasure, we’ve compiled a list of what Perry has to say about the celebrities she’s met throughout her life. Spoiler: He just wants to die on Keanu Reeves (twice).

About Jennifer Aniston on friends
• “Jennifer and I had met through mutual acquaintances about three years earlier. I was immediately taken by him (how could I not be?) and I liked him, and I had a feeling that he was also attracted – maybe it will so so. Back then I had two jobs in one day – one Haywireone America’s Funniest Home Videos– type of show, and the other is a sitcom. So I called Jennifer and I said, “You’re the first person I want to tell this to!”
Bad idea – I can feel the ice forming through the phone.

• “Quite early in making from friends I realized that I still have a crush on Jennifer Aniston. Our greetings and goodbyes became awkward. Then I asked myself, How long can I stare at him? Is three seconds too long?

The One About the Discovery of the Other friends
• “Courteney Cox was wearing a yellow dress and it was cripplingly beautiful. I had heard Lisa Kudrow from a mutual friend, and she was just as gorgeous and hilarious and incredibly smart as my friend said. Mattie LeBlanc was nice and a cool customer, and David Schwimmer had cut his hair really short (he had played Pontius Pilate for his theater troupe in Chicago) over a hangdog face and it was incredibly funny right away; warm and smart and creative.”

One About Sean Penn
• “There are guest stars all the time, which means we always have to think on our feet. Sean Penn is one of my favorites – he appeared in two episodes in season eight and nailed it. His storyline made me dress up as a pink bunny rabbit (it’s Halloween ), so at the end of the table read, I said, ‘I’ve always dreamed of working with Sean Penn, but I never thought I would. ‘I’d have to wear a pink bunny suit to do it.'”

The Ones About His Co-stars in the The Whole Nine Yards
• Bruce Willis does not disappoint – he oozed A-list. He didn’t just take over the room, hey it room In fact, I knew he was a real movie star when the first thing he did was teach the bartender how to make the perfect vodka tonic. ‘Spend three seconds,’ he said to the petrified man.

One About beating Paul Rudd

• “Acting roles, and a quick mind and mouth, and a friendship with River, and a denim jacket over a plaid shirt all combined to help me land a beautiful girlfriend named Tricia Fisher. (Daughter of Eddie Fisher and Connie Stevens – yes, Carrie Fisher’s half-sister. This girl is no stranger to charm.)

That’s When He Asked Julia Roberts
• “I sent him three dozen red roses and the card read: ‘The only thing more interesting than the prospect of you doing the show is that I finally have a reason to send you flowers’ … The answer was that if I explained the quantum sufficiently . physics to her, she would agree to the show. Wow. First, I was exchanged with a woman for whom lipstick was inventedand now I have to press the book. “

One Where He Disses Paul McCartney

Who Praises Woody Allen in 2022
• “As the night fell, we found it Annie Hall on our little TV and laughed our asses out in Woody Allen’s house under the roller coaster. (I don’t get sex and relationship jokes, but even as an eight-year-old I can understand a comedy about sneezing away $2,000 worth of some kind of white powder.)
