“I think he’s probably one of the funniest human beings in the world. He’s just so funny,” said Cox, 59. “He had a genuinely huge heart. Obviously, he struggled. I’m so thankful I got to work so closely with him for so many years. He visits me a lot, if we believe in that.”

Cox also shared that she believes Perry guides her, just like her mom and dad. “I talk to my mom, my dad, Matthew. I feel like there are a lot of people that, I think, guide us,” she said. “I do sense — I sense Matthew’s around for sure.”
