On Tuesday, PEOPLE exclusively reported that Perry, 51, had called off his engagement to Hurwitz, 29.
"Sometimes things just don't work out and this is one of them," the actor said in a statement. "I wish Molly the best."

Perry and Hurwitz began dating in 2018 and got engaged in November 2020.
"I decided to get engaged," Perry told PEOPLE at the time. "Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time."
The news of their split comes shortly after the long-awaited Friends reunion premiered on HBO Max.
For the special, Perry reunited with his old costars — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer — for only the second time since the show's finale 17 years prior.
"It's funny, when we do get together, it's like no time has passed," LeBlanc, 53, told PEOPLE ahead of the special's premiere. "We pick up right where we left off."
Perry agreed, insisting the chemistry that still exists between them all is "magic."
"It was a character-driven funny, not timely funny," he said of why the show has found such a following. "They didn't make timely jokes. They didn't make jokes about O.J. Simpson. They made character-driven jokes about people — and people are going to come back time and time again and watch that."
