Matthew Perry is making a change to his memoir.

Six months after Matthew issued a public apology to Keanu Reeves for dissing him in the book Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, the 17 Again star shared that future copies will not mention the John Wick actor's name.

"I said a stupid thing. It was a mean thing to do," Matthew said of the Keanu lines during a panel at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 22. "I pulled his name because I live on the same street. Any future versions of the book will not have his name in it."

As seen in excerpts of the book released in 2022, the Friends actor had mentioned Keanu while reflecting on a few deaths, including the passing of River Phoenix, who died of a drug overdose in 1993, and of Chris Farley, who passed away in 1997.

"River was a beautiful man, inside and out—too beautiful for this world, it turned out," a section of his original memoir read. "It always seems to be the really talented guys who go down. Why is it that the original thinkers like River Phoenix and Heath Ledger die, but Keanu Reeves still walks among us?"
