Hudson took to her Instagram Story on Monday to reflect on her time with the late Friends star who died of an apparent drowning at his Los Angeles home over the weekend.
In the heartfelt post, Hudson shared a photo of the pair from an awards show appearance where the actress was in absolute stitches, laughing over something Perry said at the time, something she said they did often.
"We played tennis and played more tennis, talked endlessly about trials and tribulations of love and then would talk some more as we would laugh our a---s off and then laughed some more," Hudson wrote.
She continued, "I share the same sadness with all our film and TV community who shared time with Matthew. As you can see, to know him was to adore him."
Hudson concluded the post by offering her support to the actor's loved ones.
"I send my love and condolences to his family and his work families," she added. "We love you Matthew."
