Inside Friends David Schwimmer’s family home he shares with daughter Cleo
He shot to fame playing Ross Geller on the hit sitcom Friends. And now, years later, David Schwimmer is living in a Manhattan townhouse.
Although he is often tight-lipped about his personal life, the father-of-one once gave fans a glimpse into his home during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2020.
During the video call, he sat in front of a black bookcase with books and CDs on it, which looked to be in his living area. There was also a vase of flowers and a black-and-white family photo behind him.
David shares the townhouse with his daughter Cleo, nine, from his relationship with Zoe Buckman. Zoe and David's daughter splits her time between her mum and dad's homes.
Sadly, David and the rest of the cast recently suffered a devastating loss after their friend and co-star Matthew Perry died.
In a joint statement shared with People, they said: "We are all so utterly devastated by the loss of Matthew. We were more than just cast mates. We are a family.
"There is so much to say, but right now we're going to take a moment to grieve and process this unfathomable loss.
"In time we will say more, as and when we are able. For now, our thoughts and our love are with Matty's family, his friends, and everyone who loved him around the world."
The Friends star was found dead in his hot tub on October 28 by emergency responders. Law enforcement said 911 dispatched responders at around 4:00 p.m. PST due to a report of cardiac arrest.
When they arrived on the scene, they began water rescue protocol after Matthew had seemingly drowned. At the time, it was reported that there were no illegal drugs on the scene and cops did not suspect any foul play.
Jennifer, who played Rachel Green on the hit sitcom, opened up about her co-star Matthew's struggles before his passing.
Friends, which first aired in 1994 and ran for 10 seasons, had a record-breaking finale in 2004 with over 50 million viewers.
The cast got together again in 2021, where Matthew became emotional as they looked back on their time filming the show.
Courteney, who played his on-screen wife, Monica Gellar, shared: "It was an incredible time. We became best friends." Matthew, unable to hold back his tears, confessed: "Yep, I'm going to cry now."
In his memoir, Matthew revealed that he found it difficult to watch the show as it brought back memories of his challenging times.
"I didn't watch the show, and haven't watched the show, because I could go, drinking, opiates, drinking, cocaine," he later added. "I could tell season by season by how I looked. That's why I don't wanna watch it, because that's what I see."
He also mentioned how his appearance on the series made it hard for him to watch. "I was taking 55 Vicodin a day, I weighed 128 lbs, I was on Friends getting watched by 30 million people – and that's why I can't watch the show, 'cause I was brutally thin'," he said. "I had a rule that I would never drink or do drugs while working."
