Jennifer Aniston has paid tribute to her "little brother" Friends co-star Matthew Perry in a heartbreaking post.

Perry was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Saturday (October 28) after reportedly drowning, according to the Los Angeles Times and celebrity website TMZ.

Perry played Chandler Bing in all 10 seasons of the popular TV series Friends alongside Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani), Lisa Kudrow (Pheobe Buffay) and David Schwimmer (Ross Geller).

The 54-year-old actor received one Emmy nomination for his role on Friends and two more for his part on The West Wing.

Courtney Cox and other Friends co-star Matt LeBlanc also recently posted tributes.

The actress, who played Rachel Green in the show wrote in an Instagram post: "Oh boy this one has cut deep... Having to say goodbye to our Matty has been an insane wave of emotions that I've never experienced before. We all experience loss at some point in our lives. Loss of life or loss of love.

"Being able to really SIT in this grief allows you to feel the moments of joy and gratitude for having loved someone that deep. And we loved him deeply. He was such a part of our DNA. We were always the 6 of us.

"This was a chosen family that forever changed the course of who we were and what our path was going to be. For Matty, he KNEW he loved to make people laugh. As he said himself, if he didn't hear the 'laugh' he thought he was going to die. His life literally depended on it. And boy did he succeed in doing just that.

"He made all of us laugh"

"He made all of us laugh. And laugh hard. In the last couple weeks, I've been pouring over our texts to one another. Laughing and crying then laughing again. I'll keep them forever and ever. I found one text that he sent me out of nowhere one day. It says it all.

"Matty, I love you so much and I know you are now completely at peace and out of any pain. I talk to you every day… sometimes I can almost hear you saying "could you BE any crazier?"

"Rest little brother. You always made my day."
