Matthew Perry Says Jennifer Aniston Confronted Him About Drinking


  • Matthew Perry said that “Friends” costar Jennifer Aniston confronted him about his drinking.
  • Perry said that the moment was “devastating” and he was confused because he never drank on set.
  • He said that Aniston told him, “We can smell it.”

Matthew Perry said that it was “devastating” when “Friends” costar Jennifer Aniston confronted him about his alcohol addiction on the set of the hit sitcom. 

In his memoir titled “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” released on Tuesday, Perry detailed his rise to fame and years-long struggles with alcoholism and drug addiction. The actor most notably played the sarcastic Chandler Bing on “Friends,” which ran for 10 seasons between 1994 and 2004. 

Perry said that he “was never high while I was working,” but he revealed that season nine was “the only year I was completely sober for a ‘Friends’ season.” It was also the only season he was nominated for an Emmy for best actor in a comedy.  

“You can track the trajectory of my addiction if you gauge my weight from season to season — when I’m carrying weight, it’s alcohol; when I’m skinny, it’s pills. When I have a goatee, it’s lots of pills,” he said.
