Tabloid Fail: Matthew Perry And Lizzy Caplan Apparently Split More Than A Year Ago
Now and again, a celebrity couple will slip either a major life event or a break-up past the press without anyone figuring out what happened for a few months. Recently, That Thing You Do actor Johnathon Schaech was able to hide a wedding between July and September, but with all due respect to his surreptitious skills, he apparently doesn’t have anything on Matthew Perry and Lizzy Caplan who somehow hid a break-up for more than a year.
That’s right. This bizarre but seemingly perfect couple apparently called it quits before Will Arnett and Amy Poehler. Given that secrecy, not a whole lot is known about why the split happened, but according to US Weekly, the separation happened more than a year and a half ago. Assumedly, there aren’t a ton of hard feelings related to it either because both have been interviewed numerous times for random things since the split and neither has thrown up any middle fingers.
Apart from acting in the severely underrated comedy Go On, Perry has spent the past few years transforming a Malibu home into a sober living facility for men trying to get back on their feet after rehab. The actor has had some high profile struggles with addiction over the years, but following a rehab stint in 2001, he’s gotten his life together and stayed on the straight and narrow. Caplan too has been keeping very busy, though in a far more conventional way. She’s appeared in films like Hot Tub Time Machine and Bachelorette and recently booked a starring role on Masters Of Sex.
Pop Blend sends out its sincerest well-wishes to both Perry and Caplan. It would have been nice if they could have been able to make it work over the long haul. Together, they would have made the most adorable parents and long-term partners, but hopefully, they’ll each be able to use the free time and openness to discover true happiness somewhere else.
