Matthew Langford Perry entered this world On August 19, 1969, in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
His mom, Canadian journalist Suzanne Marie Morrison (née Langford), used to work as Pierre Trudeau’s press secretary. His actor/model father was born in the United States in 1941 and goes by the name John Bennett Perry.
His parents split up before he turned one, and In 1981 his mom remarried when Matthew was 12 to a Canadian TV newscaster Keith Morrison (who would later become famous as a correspondent on Dateline NBC).
In Ottawa, Ontario, where his mother took care of him as a child, he attended Ashbury University. He developed a passion for tennis at a young age and eventually reached the highest levels of junior competition.
At the age of 18, River Phoenix and Matthew were cast in “A Night In The Life Of Jimmy Reardon,” which gave Matthew his big break in the acting world. At the LA Connection in Sherman Oaks, he practiced improv comedy as well, where he swiftly rose to the position of the featured performer.
In the late 1980s, he made a few fleeting television guest appearances before declaring his decision to enroll at the University of Southern California. Instead, he was given the chance to play Chazz Russell in “Second Chance,” which helped him get recognition in the acting world.
Due to his prior involvement in the TV drama “LAX 2194,” he was initially passed up for the “Friends” audition. The project didn’t get off the ground right away, but Perry was able to show up for the audition and landed the character of Chandler Bing, for which he is most known today. The ten-season run of the show led to Perry receiving an Emmy nomination in 2002.
He appeared in many movies during the span of “Friends,” including “Three To Tango,” “Almost Heroes,” “Fools Rush In,” and “The Whole Nine Yards.” In 2006, he starred in the TNT film “The Ron Clark Story,” for which he received nominations for a second Emmy and a Golden Globe.
Perry is a dual citizen of Canada and the United States. In 1995, Perry was dating Yasmine Bleeth. From 1995 to 1996, he also dated Julia Roberts. From 2006 through 2012, he dated Lizzy Caplan.
The Fallout video game franchise is a favorite of Perry’s. He presented DeGeneres with a copy of Fallout 3 on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show from 2009. Because of this, video game developer Obsidian Entertainment decided to include him in the upcoming Fallout: New Vegas episode.
According to a source, Perry underwent abdominal surgery in August 2018 to fix a gastrointestinal perforation.
He suggested that the operation happened in June 2018 in a tweet on September 15, 2018, when he said that he had spent three months recuperating in the hospital.
In November 2020, he proposed to Molly Hurwitz, a literary manager. The initial reports of them dating surfaced in December 2019 after they were said to have celebrated Christmas together. Perry announced the breakup of the engagement in June 2021.”This is one of those situations where things simply don’t work out. I hope the best for Molly.”
Alcoholism and Drug Addiction
In 1997, Perry finished a 28-day Vicodin addiction treatment program. Over the ensuing years, his weight fluctuated greatly, once falling to 145 pounds (66 kg). Due to pancreatitis, he lost 20 pounds (9.1 kg) in 2000. He returned to treatment in February 2001 to address his alcohol, Vicodin, methadone, and amphetamine addictions.
When he experienced severe stomach pains while filming Serving Sara in Texas, he took a flight to Los Angeles and checked into the Daniel Freeman Hospital in Marina del Rey. Lisa Kasteler, Perry’s publicist, confirmed his treatment. Later, Perry admitted that he can’t recall three years of his time on Friends, “somewhere between season three and six,” because of his addiction problems.
In 2011, Perry visited Capitol Hill to petition members of Congress in support of financing for drug courts. Perry served as the spokesperson for the National Association of Drug Court Professionals.
Perry opened Perry House, a sober living facility located in his former Malibu mansion, in May 2013 and was given a Champion of Recovery award by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. In 2015, Perry eventually sold the house and closed the rehab facility.
According to Matthew Perry, he spent almost $9 million on his effort to quit using drugs and alcohol and become sober. The imminent publication of the Friends actor’s book, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” has been heavily promoted.
Perry claimed that he had been sober for 18 months during the Friends reunion special, which aired in May 2021.
Matthew Perry’s Net Worth in 2022
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Matthew Perry’s net worth in 2022 is predicted to be $120 million.
From 1994 through 2004, he appeared in all 236 episodes of Friends in a major role. His pay grew significantly over time, reaching an astounding $1 million for each episode in seasons 9 and 10.
The actor still receives millions in royalties from the show even though it ended nearly 20 years ago, just like the rest of the cast. According to InTouch Weekly, the Friends performers make between $10 and $20 million annually, depending on sales each year.
He has acted in movies including Three To Tango, Almost Heroes, and The Ron Clark Story. He has also had appearances on television shows like Scrubs, Cougar Town alongside Courteney Cox from Friends, and Go On.
Real Estate Investments
Most Hollywood celebrities invest a lot of money in real estate, which they later sell for a profit. According to reports, Matthew spent $11 million on a beachfront home in Malibu in 2011, and he later sold it for $13.1 million.
Additionally, he is alleged to have spent $20 million on a penthouse in 2017. Just two years later, he sold it for a $1.6 million profit.
His current wealth will probably increase as a result of the sales of his upcoming memoir, as famous people are known to generate significant income through book deals.
