It’s no secret that celebrities deal with issues just like everybody else, however for Matthew Perry, getting clean and sober while in the public eye was nearly impossible.
The “Fools Rush In” actor told ABC News that during his time on “Friends,” his addiction to various substances made it hard on costars Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox.
In a hilarious clip, the former "Friends" cast mates confuse each other with other cast members when Jen arrives at Perry's house, thinking he is David Schwimmer and Cox confusing Jen with Lisa Kudrow.
The second annual Comedy Central Comedy Awards were taped last night (April 28) in New York City and some of our favorite comedians including Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph were in attendance.
The awards show honors the best in stand-up, television, film, and online hysteria, as well as recognizing the legendary comedians of our time. This year, the special mentions were dedicated towards comedic icon Don Rickles and funny man Robin Williams, who called himself "one of the luckiest (bleeps) in show business, with the possible exception of Ryan Seacrest."
He has a history of substance abuse, and now Matthew Perry has announced he’ll be taking a break from life to “focus on my sobriety.”
The “Friends” star insists he hasn’t relapsed back to his prescription pill addiction (he spent time in rehab back in 1997 and 2001), and that he’s taking proactive measures to stay on the straight and narrow.
