Matthew Perry Opens Up About His Addiction

Matthew Perry Makes Light of His Massive Residuals From “Friends”

Matthew Perry gets by with a little help from his friends on Friends. Andy Cohen, the host of SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Live, asked the actor who played Chandler Bing how much money he still gets from the show.

“You talked with Diane Sawyer about the resurgence of Friends over the last few years, and it made me wonder,” Cohen, 54, began. “Are the Friends checks that come in today, would you characterise them as bountiful checks? Or would you say it’s a trickle at this point?”

In response, the 53-year-old author of Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing said, “Well, I bought Iowa yesterday.” After Cohen questioned if the checks were “bountiful,” Perry said, “Not bad.”

The actor explained, “And they come in form of a text: ‘You just made this.’ And I go, ‘Oh, great.'” Continuing the joke, Cohen said, “I heard you really had your eye on Colorado.” Perry responded, “Yeah I did. But The Rock got that.”

The actor may be best known for playing Chandler on Friends, which ran for 10 seasons on NBC from 1994 to 2004 and also starred Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer.

Perry also talked about his dating life in his interview with Cohen. He told the host that he “could not be more single.” After talking briefly about his past experiences with dating apps, he said he prefers to meet people in person. “I am off forever,” he told Cohen. “It’s not the way to meet people, I don’t think. I’m not sure how to meet people, but that’s not the way to do it.”

Such as whether or not he is looking for a partner who is also sober, Perry said, “That would be good. But it’s not a necessity.” “You know, I wouldn’t like to be with somebody who drank so much that you couldn’t recognize them,” Perry explained. “That would not be good… But I don’t have any rules about that.” Perry’s memoir Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing is out now.
