The actor is currently embroiled in controversy over his upcoming memoir, which reportedly contained negative comments about Keanu Reeves, his former co-star in “The Whole Nine Yards.”

According to Variety, Perry’s memoir sparked backlash after a leaked passage in which he referred to Reeves as a “bad actor” and mocked his Canadian accent.

The controversy quickly spread on social media, with many fans calling for Perry to apologize and remove the offensive content from the book.

In response to the backlash, Perry stated his publicist, pledging to remove the controversial content from the memoir. Perry said in the statement

“I’m sorry for my remarks about Keanu. He’s a fantastic actor, and I deeply regret my comments. I have nothing but respect for him and his work, and I will remove those comments from the book.”

The controversy has also led to speculation about Perry’s relationship with Reeves. The two actors have worked together on multiple projects, including “The Whole Nine Yards” and “Serving Sara,” and have been friends for years. However, some fans wonder if the controversy will strain their friendship.

Despite the controversy, Perry’s memoir is still highly anticipated by fans of “Friends” and the actor’s work. It will be released later this year and is expected to delve into Perry’s life and addiction struggles.

This isn’t the first time a celebrity memoir has sparked controversy over negative comments about a fellow actor. In 2021, actress Demi Moore came under fire for comments she made about her ex-husband Ashton Kutcher in her memoir, “Inside Out.”

Moore faced criticism for revealing personal details about Kutcher and their relationship without his consent.

As the release date of Perry’s memoir approaches, it remains to be seen how fans and the public will react to the controversial content.

However, Perry’s pledge to remove the negative comments about Reeves is a step in the right direction and may help to mitigate some of the backlashes.
