Matthew Perry will release his debut autobiography next year

Friends star Matthew Perry is confirmed to release his autobiography in late 2022, confessing that he feels it’s time for him to tell his own story “directly from the horse’s mouth”.

The 52 year old actor who played Chandler Bing on the hugely successful TV sitcom , has previously spoken about his substance abuse and alcohol struggles and will now write an unflinchingly honest memoir and said “There has been so much written about me by others in the past. I thought it was time people heard it directly from the horse’s mouth. In this case, the horse’s mouth being me.”

Matthew had signed a seven-figure deal with Flatiron Books, a division of Macmillan, for the upcoming memoir.

The publication doesn’t yet have a title, and it will be released late next year MarkMeets can reveal.

A source said: “We need humour, we need catharsis, and we need to agree on something–and Matthew’s extraordinary story, told in his inimitable voice, is that thing. Matthew’s book has unrivalled potential to bring people together, which feels especially galvanizing right now, a time of isolation and division.”

It’s not yet known how much of Matthew’s life his book with cover, but earlier this year he reunited with his ‘Friends’ co-stars – Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer – for a long-awaited special on HBO Max.

The special revealed a number of behind-the-scenes secrets from their time on the show and showed the actors reminiscing about being a part of the hit series.

Speaking before the special aired, Matthew spoke about the lasting legacy of the show, saying: “It was a character-driven funny, not timely funny. They didn’t make timely jokes. They didn’t make jokes about O.J. Simpson. They made character-driven jokes about people — and people are going to come back time and time again and watch that.”
