Matthew Perry gained fame largely due to his portrayal of the character Chandler on the TV show Friends. However, in real life, the actor is very different from the character he played.
The recent photos of Matthew Perry have surprised fans who used to consider him as one of the sexiest actors in the industry. Perry, who had previously dated famous Hollywood actresses such as Yasmine Bleeth, Julia Roberts, and Lizzy Caplan, looks strikingly different now, leaving fans taken aback.
Because of how much he has changed, you might not even recognize him if you saw him on the street. He has become unrecognizable. The well-known actor has failed to win his war against the bulge and as a result has gained a significant amount of weight.
The actor was just just seen on camera in Beverly Hills, and his appearance has absolutely nothing to do with the heartthrob from years gone by.
Matthew Perry was spotted by paparazzi in a parking lot, where he was meeting a young woman. The paparazzi caught him in an untidy state, wearing a T-shirt that was soiled, unwashed, and unshaven. He was also wearing laceless sneakers.
Perry has not had the best of luck over the past few years, and it shows in his body as it shows signs of wear and tear.
Two years ago, he suffered from a perforated bowel, also known as gastrointestinal perforation and burst bowel, and was very close to passing away as a result.
However, the medics acted quickly and were able to successfully save his life. In addition to that, he was given a diagnosis of acute pancreatitis, a condition that he is currently working hard to get under control.
The actor has been very open in public discussions about his battle with drug addiction and his efforts to maintain long-term sobriety.
In 1997 and 2001, Perry checked himself into rehab for his addiction to Vicodin. This is a well-known fact. He admitted that he has trouble recalling filming the first three seasons of “Friends.”
In 2013, Perry discussed his struggle with alcoholism and drug addiction, claiming that he is currently successful in his fight against the disease of addiction.
“The majority of it consisted of booze and drugs. I believe I did a good job of concealing it, but in the end, others were able to figure it out “he indicated to ABC News.
