Matthew Perry reflects on ‘Friends’ journey and his struggles with addiction in autobiography

"There has been so much written about me by others in the past. I thought it was time people heard it directly from the horse’s mouth. In this case, the horse’s mouth being me," the actor said in a press note.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S star Matthey Perry will bring his signature Chandler Bing humour and wit in the written form in his currently untitled autobiography slated to hit the shelves next year.

The book will take readers on a ‘behind the scenes’ journey of the 10-season sitcom and also narrate Perry’s struggles with addiction.

There has been so much written about me by others in the past. I thought it was time people heard it directly from the horse’s mouth. In this case, the horse’s mouth being me,” Perry said in a press note. The book will be published by Flatiron books, a division of Macmillan.

Perry’s memoir, the first from a cast member of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, is unflinchingly honest, delightfully gossipy, and absolutely hilarious. This is the book that Friends fans have been waiting for but also one that shines a powerful light into the dark for anyone who is in their own battle with addiction, either for themselves or a loved one,” stated a release.
