If you look at the Chandler Bing actor's previous relationships, it wouldn't take a second to conclude that he was never gay. Additionally, he was further linked to many celebrities (of course, women) in the past. If you read his memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing, you can have a quick glance at his serious as well as "quick makeout" romances, including with Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Rachel Dunn, and Lizzy Caplan.
His memoir alone is more than enough to clarify his sexuality. While he never tied the knot, he was once very close to getting married to his latest ex-girlfriend. Matter of fact, they even got engaged.
Molly Hurwitz, a literary manager, and Matthew Perry started dating in 2018. He proposed to her in November 2020. In an interview with People, he said,
I decided to get engaged. Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time.
However, the couple decided to call it quits in June 2021, just after 6 months of their engagement. Following his split with Molly, we don't think Matthew dated anybody. It's safe to assume he was single at the time of his death.
In conclusion, we confirm that Matthew was never gay. He never had an interest in dating people of other genders except females.
