Friends Cast Members Rallied Behind Matthew Perry

But despite the actor’s rumored desire to expose some of his Friends co-stars, most of them reached out to him after Perry was criticized following his appearance in the reunion special.

“Matthew’s behavior has worried the Friends cast for years. Courteney reached out to him after the reunion to see if he’s OK, but he avoided her calls. He’s finding some solace in writing. It’s been cathartic for Matthew. The hope is that this book will give him the closure he desperately needs,” the unnamed source concluded.

According to Vanity Fair, Perry is writing a candid memoir about Friends and his addiction. The actor will also, reportedly, inject his humor into his memoir, which suggests that it will be filled with hilarious anecdotes about his time on the show.

“We need humor, we need catharsis, and we need to agree on something–and Matthew’s extraordinary story, told in his inimitable voice, is that thing. Matthew’s book has unrivaled potential to bring people together, which feels especially galvanizing right now, a time of isolation and division,” Megan Lynch, the publisher of Flatiron Books, said in a press release.

According to Deadline, Perry signed a seven-figure deal with Flatiron Books to release his memoir next year. The publication also noted that Perry’s upcoming memoir is the first one ever to be released from a Friends cast member.
