Matthew Perry battled addiction for years
Matthew Perry has been open and honest about his struggles with substance abuse, which sent him to rehab twice during the peak of Friends’ success. But the now-sober actor managed to shock us once again when he admitted to BBC2 Radio in 2016 that his addictions caused him to forget filming three years of Friends. “I think the answer is, I don’t remember three years of it,” Perry said when asked to pick his least-favorite episode of Friends. “So none of those … somewhere between Season three and six.” Perry previously spoke about his addictions to alcohol and pills to People in 2013, admitting at one point he “couldn’t stop.” “Eventually things got so bad that I couldn’t hide it, and then everybody knew,” he said.
