Matthew Perry has revealed that wealth is one of the most important things he is looking for in a partner.
The 53-year-old actor told the People newspaper that after many of his relationships failed because the women he was in love with only wanted his money, he decided to find love with another woman with his wealth.
“The next person I really value is someone I will fall in love with and who is not afraid of the things that used to scare me… someone who supports himself. In all ways, but especially with money, because I got burned several times by women who wanted my money, who didn’t care about me,” he explained.
When asked about any dating deal deals, Perry doubled down on her belief. “The people I start to think are in it. And it happens more often than you think. Someone who owns their wealth is the most important thing to me.”
MATTHEW PERRY EXPLAINED WHY HE HAS NOT FIND LOVE AND WHY HE’S GETTING OTHER RICH WOMEN.
Beverly Hills-based celebrity actress and dating expert Alessandra Conti told Fox News Digital that Perry’s fear of hooking up with women who may not have pure intentions is common among celebrities and high-powered men who seek her out.
He explained that most of his clients hire him not just to find love, but to get rid of any women who might want them for their money.
“I also like that he uses the word ‘self-support’,” Conti added of Perry. “Men who have the upper hand in their work, which usually comes, of course, comes with financial wealth, they want a woman who is more. A woman who brings femininity and care and warmth and passion into their lives.”
Conti explained that logically, a celebrity friend would come from a certain level of wealth. “So he either doesn’t panic at all and is affected by the lifestyle or just completely different or just fascinated by it,” he said.
“But I want to compare the public figures with the people who are rooted,” he added. “Stable men and women who are living full lives and have passions outside of relationships, even if they are a kindergarten teacher. It doesn’t matter what the job is, but where is the attitude?”
George Clooney, once considered a lifelong bachelor, met his wife Amal Alamuddin, an international human rights lawyer who has built a successful practice representing high-profile clients, including Julian Assange and former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.
The couple is united in their commitment to promoting human rights around the world and co-founded the Clooney Foundation for Justice in 2016.
Conti said that apart from using matchmaking companies like his, celebrities often meet successful and wealthy partners through volunteer work or by attending high-profile events and galleries.
In 2006, Salma Hayek met French billionaire businessman François-Henri Pinault at a gala in Venice, Italy. The couple welcomed daughter Valentina in 2007 and got married in 2009.
Miranda Kerr was first introduced to billionaire Snap CEO Evan Spiegel at the 2014 Louis Vuitton event in New York City. The couple have been married since 2017 and share two sons.
In addition to Hayek and Kerr, several famous women, including Janet Jackson, Elle MacPherson and Mariah Carey, have dated or married billionaires. Conti shared his insight into why famous women are more likely than their husbands to choose to be extremely wealthy.
“I think a lot of famous women are more attracted to men who come from a strong background because often there is a strong, protective provider, which is attractive to a woman, even for a quote. unquote alpha woman or a famous or popular woman,” she said.
“Most of the time when they are in their day jobs, they are there, they are the leader. But when they are in their romantic relationship, they want to use their femininity.”
In recent years, many celebrities have turned to dating games to find relationships. Raya, the exclusive members-only dating app for the famous and influential, is especially popular with stars looking to find love and partners who have also achieved a certain level of wealth, status and fame.
Drew Barrymore, Channing Tatum, Demi Lovato, Kiernan Shipka and Olivia Rodrigo are among the stars who tried to find love on Raya.
In a 2020 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” Barrymore said the sweep by Raya was “watching us week after week”.
“I also did terrible things. I got up, and I didn’t look like anyone,” he admitted to Cohen, who himself is a user of Raya.
He continued, “And my friends gave me this kind of false sense of confidence. They were like, ‘You should try it. You’ll be fine.’ It was a car wreck.”
However, Raya boasts some success stories. Olympian Simone Biles met her fiance, Houston Texans safety Jonathan Owens, on the app in March 2020, shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down.
The NFL star later admitted he “hadn’t heard of” the four-time Olympic gold medalist when they first got together.
“I didn’t know who he was,” Owens told Texas Monthly in June 2021. “I had never heard of him, and when I told him that, that was one of the things he wanted.”
The couple went public with their relationship in August 2020 and announced their engagement last February.

“Real Housewives of Orange County” alum Meghan King and President Joe Biden’s cousin Cuffe Biden Owens’ short-lived romance began after they met on the app in September 2021. The couple tied the knot three weeks later but split after two months of marriage. .
Regardless of how they meet, Conti told Fox News Digital that he believes celebrities like Perry put strict morals over money when it comes to dating.
“I know what Matthew is talking about, and I think it’s lost on the search for, quote unquote, a rich woman,” he said. “So what I’ve found is that women who have successful marriages and partnerships with men who are very knowledgeable, are not just billionaires, but have strong family-based systems.”
He went on to say, “It’s based on relationships, friendships and experiences. So that’s where he has to really prioritize. He needs to prioritize meeting women who aren’t so much after money. That’s exactly what I think he’s trying to say.”
