Trudeau Wants Matthew Perry Rematch: 'Who Hasn't Wanted To Punch Chandler?'

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is joking that he wouldn't mind a rematch with former 'Friends' star and classmate Matthew Perry.

In an appearance with Jimmy Kimmel last month, Perry said he and a friend once beat up Trudeau when they were in 5th grade.

"My friend Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau," he recalled. "We both beat him up. I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren't so it was pure jealousy."

"I think he was the only kid in school that we could beat up," he added "You know, I’m not bragging about this, this is terrible. I was a stupid kid, I didn't want to beat him up. In fact, I think at one point I tried to turn it into love play."

"I think it was rather instrumental in him going to such great heights and becoming the prime minister," he laughed. "I think he said, 'I'm gonna rise above this and I'm gonna become prime minister.'"

Trudeau said on Twitter in the light-hearted moment on April 1 that he wouldn't mind revisiting the fight.

"I've been giving it some thought, and you know what, who hasn't wanted to punch Chandler?," he said. "How about a rematch Matthew Perry?"

Although Perry wasn't as keen.

"I think I will pass at your request for a rematch kind sir," he responded, "Given that you currently have an army at your disposal."
