Mathew Perry was paid in the ‘mid-seven-figures’ to pen the 256-page tell-all titled Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing. However, the five-time Emmy nominee recently said that he will not ‘sugarcoat the tougher times that he went through’ with his Friends castmates in his upcoming memoir.

A source told Us Weekly, “He’ll delve into his addictions, of course, plus clear up rumors about his feelings for the Friends co-stars,” The insider added: “It’s not going to be salacious or mean, just totally honest. But given the nature of Matt’s life and his experiences, that guarantees this will be an incredibly juicy read!”

Matthew was most recently in the news for bringing a “palpable unease” to the much-anticipated Friends: The Reunion, which aired on HBO Max on May 27. He revealed that he doesn’t hear “from anyone” in the cast and used to feel “like I was going to die if the [audience] didn’t laugh” while playing Chandler Bing on the NBC sitcom, which aired in 1994 to 2004.

Perry, who received a Champion of Recovery award in 2013 for opening the sober living home Perry House, has battled Vicodin, methadone, amphetamines, and alcohol addictions. The SAG Award winner will also discuss ‘what went wrong’ during his relationships with ex-fiancée Molly Hurwitz and celebrities Julia Roberts, Neve Campbell, Lauren Graham, and Lizzy Caplan. Matthew, who has 11.8 million social media followers, tweeted on February 10, “So much has been written about me in the past. I thought it was time people heard from me.”

“The highs were high, the lows were low. But I have lived to tell the tale, even though at times it looked like I wouldn’t. And it’s all in here. I apologize it’s not a pop up book.”

Matthew’s last film role was as conservative talking head Dan Pawketty in Adam McKay’s star-studded climate change comedy Don’t Look Up, which was cut before the film’s December premiere. Since executive producing and starring as Ted Kennedy in the two-part miniseries The Kennedys: After Camelot, which aired on Reelz in 2017, audiences have not seen The Whole Nine Yards alum acting onscreen.

Perry’s book is set to drop on November 1st, 2022.
