Stamos guest-starred as a sperm donor for Monica, played by Courteney Cox and Chandler, played by Perry. He also revealed that Perry had been friends with him long before they met at the show’s set and shooting an episode together only brought them closer. “When I starred as Zach, the prospective sperm donor for Chandler and Monica, I hung out with him a lot,” he said. The actor further shared their backstage scenarios where the duo spent much time together. Sharing one particular instance, Stamos said, “Standing backstage, ready to make my entrance, Matt whispers, ‘The audience is going to go crazy when they see you! Get ready for some screams.’” Unfortunately, the actor mentioned that the crowd was utterly silent and Stamos couldn’t help but feel embarrassed.

“I was so embarrassed. We finish the scene and as I start to slither back to my dressing room and quit showbiz,” Stamos expressed. Shortly, Perry came to his rescue and ever so kindly and selflessly gave him the recognition and applause he deserved. “Matt walks over to the studio audience: ‘Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for John Stamos! You guys probably didn’t recognize him at first because he’s so much better looking in person!’” Stamos remarked. As he nostalgically recalled the fond memory of the late actor, he concluded his post in immense gratitude saying, “I never forgot that and the world will never forget you.” Just another one of the beloved Perry’s gestures but it left the impact of a lifetime on yet another heart.

Stamos’ post received hundreds of thousands of likes. While commenters recalled the episode and the grandeur of comedy in it, many also acknowledged the late actor’s empathy and understanding. @allysonlocke said, “He was so thoughtful of everyone’s feelings and that showed so much through all of his work and characters throughout his life. He will be forever missed.” Stamos who has recently launched his memoir "If You Would Have Told Me" which reflects his life, grief, parents and much more, had a book signing recently. @faithlo3 shared a rather emotional comment recalling, “I was there when they broke the news to you of Matthew’s passing Saturday night. It was almost my turn to meet you in line at your Atlanta book signing. We all witnessed the shock and sadness in your reaction, yet you carried on with laughter and a smile for the last 25+ people.”
