In every middle and elementary school in the United States and across the world, there are always fights, arguments, and disputes between students. Especially amongst 5th grade boys, it certainly would not be the first time if one boy beat up another.
It appears that is exactly what happened between Matthew Perry and Justin Trudeau when the two were in grade school. Perry who is a prominent actor in the television series “Friends,” claims that he beat up Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau.
On Jimmy Kimmel, Perry told Kimmel that he was “not proud of the situation” and he made it clear by saying, “I’m not bragging about this, this is terrible.”
“I think he was the only kid in school that we could beat up.”
Perry stated that him and a friend joined together to “beat him up,” adding, “I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren’t, so it was pure jealousy.” The actor also stated that “I think he was the only kid in school that we could beat up.”
Interestingly, Trudeau’s father was also the Canadian Prime Minister at the time, although Perry stated that this was not the reason for the fight. Evidently, the children of the Prime Minister, at least at the time, did not have anything similar to Secret Service protection like they do in the United States.
Matthew Perry stated that he has never talked about the encounter with Trudeau. It is not known if the Prime Minister even recalls the incident. His office did not comment on the claims.
