Matthew Perry doesn’t think his former “Friends” co-stars will be interested in reading his new memoir about his decades-long battle with addiction.
Perry told GQ that as of now, none of his co-stars besides Lisa Kudrow, who wrote the foreword, have read “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing” — and he doesn’t expect that to change.
“Why would they read it? I don’t know. Because, you know, who cares? Addicts are going to care about this, and fans of ‘Friends’ are going to care about this. But the cast is not going to really care about this,” the actor told the magazine.
Kudrow shares in her opening of the book, which hits stores Nov. 1, that reading Perry’s story was the “first time [she heard] what living with and surviving his addiction really was.”
