Jennifer Aniston recently opened up about Matthew Perry’s addiction struggles and how they affected her. In an interview with The Express, Aniston revealed that she was “heartbroken” when she learned about Perry’s addiction.
“It was really tough to watch someone I love go through that,” Aniston said. “I felt so helpless. I wanted to help him, but I didn’t know how.”
Aniston said that she tried to be there for Perry as much as possible. She would call him and check in on him, and she would even fly to visit him in rehab.
“I knew that he was struggling, but I didn’t know how bad it was until I saw him in person,” Aniston said. “He was really thin and pale, and he looked like he was in a lot of pain.”
Aniston said that she was “so proud” of Perry for getting sober. She said that he is “an inspiration” to her, and she is “so happy” to see him healthy and happy.
Perry has been open about his addiction struggles in the past. In a 2016 interview with People magazine, Perry said that he had been addicted to alcohol and drugs for many years. He said that he had been to rehab several times, but he had never been able to stay sober for very long.
In 2021, Perry released a memoir titled Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing. In the book, Perry opened up about his addiction struggles in more detail. He said that he had been addicted to alcohol and drugs since he was a teenager. He also said that he had overdosed on several occasions.
Perry said that he is now sober and that he is “happier than he has ever been.” He is also working on a new TV show and a new album.
Aniston’s support for Perry is a reminder that even the biggest stars can struggle with addiction. It is also a reminder that there is hope for recovery, even for those who have struggled for many years.
