"Matthew Perry was unhappy". George Clooney reveals unknown facts about the Friends star

George Clooney said that Matthew Perry was not happy

The world-famous American actor George Clooney was a friend of Matthew Perry, a favorite of millions who passed away prematurely at the end of October 2023. The Hollywood star said that in his youth he spent a lot of time with his colleague, because the TV series ER, in which Clooney played, was filmed on the same set as the cult movie Friends. The 62-year-old filmmaker recalled how Perry used to take 12 Vicodin pills a day in secret.

Clooney and other Friends actors saw their close friend suffering from addiction, but no one knew how to help him. George Clooney shared little-known facts about Matthew Perry's life, his experiences and dreams in an interview with Deadline Hollywood.

"Watching it happen on the set-we were at Warner Brothers, we were there next to each other-it was hard to watch because we didn't know what was going on with him. We just knew he was unhappy, and I had no idea what he was doing. He takes 12 Vicodin pills a day. It's a reminder that success, money, and so on don't automatically bring you happiness," said the star of Ocean's 11, Batman and Robin, and other films.

Clooney recalled how Perry dreamed of starring in a sitcom. However, according to the actor, the huge success and audience love for Chandler Bing never made Matthew happy.

"He told me: 'I just want to be on a sitcom, man. I just want to be on a regular sitcom and I'll be the happiest person on earth. He ended up on one of the best sitcoms in history, but he didn't become happy. It brought him no joy, no happiness, no peace," Clooney recalled.

Medical examiners in Los Angeles have given an opinion on the cause of death of Matthew Perry. The autopsy results of the actor's body showed that his death was caused by an accident caused by the "acute effects of ketamine". This is a powerful anesthetic that has become popular in the United States in recent years as an alternative treatment for depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

As you know, immediately after the tragic news of "Chandler Bing"'s death, fans were waiting for a reaction from other "friends," but there was none for quite some time. Later, on the third day after the tragedy, the actors made a joint statement.
