They immediately raised questions about whether Perry, who has been candid about his years of substance abuse issues, had again fallen off the wagon.
He has a history of stints in rehab in 1997 and 2001. He once even said that he was so far removed from the height of his TV career that he doesnt remember filming multiple seasons of Friends.
I think the answer is, I dont remember three years of it,he told BBC Radio 2in 2016. So none of those Somewhere between Season 3 and 6 I was a little out of it.
Growing up in Canada, the Whole Nine Yards star was raised with a competitive streak and a penchant for tennis. He rose in the junior rankings to No. 2 in Ottawa until relocating to LA with his father in 1984, where he ultimately turned to acting. Like any other struggling actor in the City of Angels, Perry faced a lot of rejection and worked on several failed TV shows before landing the life-changing role of Chandler Bing on Friends, a role hed play from 1994 to 2004.
All the superficial things about [fame] came true, hetold People in 2002of the series success. I was naive enough to think it would fulfill all aspects of my life.
Then, three years after the shows debut, Perry got into a jet ski accident that would ultimately be the start of his addiction issues, as he started to become completely dependent on painkillers.
It wasnt my intention to have a problem with it, he said. But from the start I liked how it made me feel, and I wanted to get more. As his addiction escalated, I was out of control and very unhealthy, said Perry, who lost around 20 pounds, which became incredibly apparent on the NBC sitcom.

He spent two-and-a-half months in treatment and learned that a happy life is possible without alcohol or drugs.
The Fools Rush In star remained sober from thereon out, but in 2011 said he voluntarily checked back into rehab to keep his sobriety in check.
Im making plans to go away for a month to focus on my sobriety and to continue my life in recovery,he said at the time. Please enjoy making fun of me on the World Wide Web.
