Matthew Perry’s memoir won’t ‘sugarcoat tougher times he went through’ on Friends show

Matthew Perry’s upcoming memoir hits the shelves later in the year and it’s said the star “won’t sugarcoat the tougher times that he went through” with his Friends co-stars, Mirror reports.

The actor, 52, is releasing a 256-page tell-all book titled Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing and was paid a “mid-seven-figure” sum to do so according to Deadline.

A source, the paper says, told US Weekly : “He’ll delve into his addictions, of course, plus clear up rumours about his feelings for the Friends co-stars.

“It wasn’t always a bed of roses for Matthew on and off the Friends set. He’ll also discuss what it was like at the reunion, both good and bad.”

They continued: “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!”

During the eagerly anticipated Friends reunion which aired last year, the Chandler Bing actor confessed he hadn’t kept in touch with fellow cast members since the show, including Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow.

They portrayed the iconic group of friends for 10 seasons between 1994 and 2004.

During the later years, Matthew was in rehab twice and has since described how he couldn’t remember all of his years on the show.
