Matthew Perry was spotted recently at an Italian restaurant in Hollywood named Dan Tana. He did not look good…
We had high hopes that Matthew Perry had finally gotten his act together after a long time away from the public. Unfortunately, the pictures captured by the cameras do not tell a good story.
Matthew Perry was on a ‘date’ with an unnamed lady who seemed quite deliberate about making him feel comfortable in public. We feel bad that the former Friends star may be losing the battle to drugs, alcohol and depression.
It has not always been a smooth ride for Matthew Perry, who started his struggle with substance abuse while he was still filming the last episodes of Friends.
Though he claims that he was never high on any substance on set, Matthew Perry confirms that it was a difficult experience trying to film and get his lines correctly, because he was always dealing with a hangover.
There have been attempts to get Matthew Perry back on track in his acting career. In 2011, Matthew Perry checked in to rehab again. That was the third time. He had made two earlier attempts to get professional help, but unfortunately, it did not work.
After announcing to the world that he was going on a sobriety leave, we did not hear any news about Matthew Perry until 2013.
He seemed healthy and ready to start acting again. Matthew Perry also opened The Perry House, which was a centre for other addicts who were undergoing rehab or recovering. This was positive celebrity news while it lasted.
Unfortunately, by 2016, The Perry House was shut down, and Matthew Perry suffered a relapse. This time, his alcohol abuse was escalating. Matthew Perry was spotted in a restaurant in London talking to himself and smoking non-stop.
He is now 50 years old, and he has seen a fair share of struggles with substance abuse, so we must applaud his resilience. He has come a long way and has somehow managed to keep himself from sinking to the bottom.
When he was at the top of his game as an actor, Matthew Perry was romantically linked with some notable female stars. It was rumored that he dated Julia Roberts at one time, and Rachel Dunn, before starting a long-term relationship with Lizzy Caplan, which lasted about six years.
Matthew Perry attempted a comeback into the Hollywood scene with his role in the CBS reboot of The Odd Couple. Unfortunately, the show was cancelled by CBS in 2017.
