Matthew Perry says it was "pure jealousy" that led to him roughing up Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau when the two were in grade school together.
"My friend, Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau," the Friends star admitted while on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
While Trudeau's father, Pierre Trudeau, was the prime minister of the country at the time, Perry -- who was 10 at the time -- said that wasn't the reason he decided to pick on his schoolmate. "I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren’t as [good at]," he quipped. "I think he was the only kid in school we could beat up."
"I’m not bragging about this," Perry was quick to clarify. "This is terrible, I was a stupid kid. I didn’t want to beat him up. In fact, I think at one point I tried to turn it into love play."
The 47-year-old actor joked that it was this beat down that helped make Trudeau the world leader that he is today. "I think it was rather instrumental in him going to such great heights and becoming prime minister,” he playfully remarked. “Yeah, I think he said, ‘I’m gonna rise above this, and I’m gonna become prime minister.'”
This wouldn't be the first time Trudeau had a tough time making friends. In September, the 45-year-old politician got the cold shoulder upon meeting Prince William and Kate Middleton's 3-year-old son, Prince George. Check out the adorably awkward moment:
