The "Friends" actor Matthew Perry recently admitted he once beat up Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and is not quite "proud of it." However, the story goes a long time back when both Perry and Trudeau were kids and went to school together in Ottawa in Canada.
In a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday night Perry revealed, "I have a story about him that I'm not proud of," he went on to say, "My friend Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau. We both beat him up."
Recollecting the day when he was just ten years old, he claimed it was triggered by "pure jealousy" as the Canadian Prime Minister was "excelling in a sport." The actor further added saying, "He was the only kid in school that we could beat up, "despite the fact that his father, Pierre Trudeau, was the Canadian Prime Minister at the time.
The actor went on to admit, "I'm not bragging about this. It's terrible. I was a stupid kid I didn't want to beat him up."
"I think it was rather instrumental in him going to such great heights and becoming the prime minister," the actor argued.
He also recollected and mentioned what Trudeau said at that time, "I think he said, 'I'm going to rise above this and I'm going to become prime minister.'"
Mr Trudeau is the second youngest man to be elected Prime Minister in Canada and the leader of the Liberal Party is more of a celebrity politician since he took his office in November 2015.
