Matthew Perry beat up Justin Trudeau (in elementary school)

Apparently everyone in Canada really does know each other: Not only did former Friend Matthew Perry and the internet’s boyfriend Justin Trudeau attend the same elementary school, but apparently Perry kicked the shit out of the future Canadian Prime Minister when they were in fifth grade. Perry told the story on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he explained that Trudeau “was excelling in a sport”—hockey, one assumes, although it could also be curling—which made Perry so jealous, he and a friend ganged up on Trudeau and beat him up. Perry jokes that the incident may have been ”rather instrumental” in inspiring Trudeau to become the high achiever he is today, although we suspect that Trudeau’s dad being the Prime Minister before him may have been just a little more helpful.
