“I’ll remember that character for the rest of my life,” Adele said, with deep admiration for Chandler Bing, adding, “He's probably the best comedic character of all time.”

Reflecting on her own childhood, Adele recalled a friend named Andrew who could imitate Chandler's wit and humour flawlessly, always bringing smiles and laughter to those around him. "He would do it all the time to make us laugh," she reminisced, "and if any of us were having a bad day or feeling low, he would just pretend to be Chandler."

Adele, who embarked on her own journey to sobriety earlier this year, also acknowledged Perry's brave transparency about his struggles with addiction and sobriety. The actor's 2022 memoir, "Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing," shed light on these challenges, and Adele commended his courage for sharing his story.
