Matthew Perry Reveals If ‘Friends’ Cast Has Contacted About The Book

Matthew Perry has heard of a “few” of his “Friends” co-stars prior to the release of his memoir, “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.”

The actor told George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America” ​​Monday that he hopes Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Courteney Cox read his book, which hits stores Tuesday.

“I’ve already gotten some really nice lyrics from some of them, and the book isn’t even out yet,” said Perry, 53.

“So hopefully, [I get] more,” he continued. “It’s very important to me that I didn’t go after anyone and that I didn’t gossip [in the book].”

The Emmy nominee previously told GQ that his former castmates “wouldn’t care about his memoir”.

“Addicts will care about this, and ‘Friends’ fans will care about this,” he explained to the magazine. ‘Why would they read it? I don’t know.”

“Friends” aired from 1994 to 2004.

However, Kudrow wrote the foreword for Perry’s upcoming release, which focuses on his decades-long addiction problems.

“He has survived impossible odds, but I had no idea how many times he nearly failed,” wrote the 59-year-old actress, noting that she heard her opponent’s story “in detail” for the first time.

“He leaves us in Matthew’s head and heart now,” Kudrow added.

While Aniston, 53, LeBlanc, 55, Cox, 58, and Schwimmer, 55, have yet to comment on the memoir, Perry’s “Sydney” co-star Valerie Bertinelli was “mortified” by how she was portrayed in the tell-all.

The 62-year-old “Hot in Cleveland” shared her response via TikTok after discovering Perry described having kissed her once while her then-husband, Eddie Van Halen, was sleeping nearby.

Perry also detailed how she broke up with Julia Roberts, had a disastrous date with Cameron Diaz, and had a pre-“Friends” crush on Aniston in the memoir.
