Matthew Perry reportedly has the hots for his Friends TV show co-star Courteney Cox. The on-screen couple recently spent some time together and now there are reports that Matthew has always been in love with Courteney.

"Matthew's always been in love with her," a source revealed to UsWeekly. The source went on to claim that even though Matthew knows that Courteney Cox is currently dating Johnny McDaid, Matthew has "never fully been able to get over her."

Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox starred as Chandler Bing and Monica Geller in NBC's sitcom, Friends. The duo shared an amazing on-screen chemistry as a couple and when Cox shared a picture of them on a lunch date, several fans started to wonder that something might be happening between the two of them.

"Could I BE any happier? #realfriends," Courteney Cox wrote on Instagram alongside a cute selfie with Matthew Perry.
