Matthew Perry has given us a shocking insight into the reality of his infamous addictions...
We first met Perry in 1994...When he landed the role of Chandler Bing in the infamous TV series, Friends.
The show was an instant hit.Created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, the comedy follows the friends, who live in the same New York apartment block, as they together navigate through the turbulent years of their late twenties.
We all grew to become incredibly attached to the characters.The show truly made us feel like a member of the Friends gang, even when we were conflicted over whether Ross and Rachel really were on a break or not... FYI they totally were on a break.
The final episode aired in September 2004...And we watched through tears as the gang said their final goodbyes to the apartment we had all grown to know and love for the past decade.
But, fifteen years on from Rachel getting off the plane...We have never found out what happened to the gang. Did Rachel and Ross stay together? Would Monica and Chandler ever get divorced? Did Joey ever make it as a big actor?
Over the years, there have been a few low-key reunions and a lot of false hope...Apart from the occasional reunion on talk-shows, fans have had their fair share of disappointments when it comes to waiting for a Friends reunion.
A trailer for a Friends movie went viral last year, giving superfans false hope that the sitcom was hitting the box office...But it wasn't to be. The trailer was quickly confirmed to be fake and, again, our dreams were shattered.
And even the cast have confirmed that a reunion is incredibly unlikely...Matt Le Blanc left fans heartbroken last year as he rejected calls for the show to return, saying the sitcom simply “wouldn’t be the same" in an interview with the Mail Online. He added, “People want to know what happened to them. But it was about a finite period in a person’s life after college, before you settle down and start a family."
But in real life, the cast have remained firm friends throughout the years.
The cast have been pictured together more and more in the last couple of months...
But one cast member was a little late to the Instagram party.Matthew Perry, or Chandler Bing... Or Miss Chanandeler Bong.
Perry became the last Friend to join Instagram in February...
But, behind the heartwarming throwbacks...There is a slightly darker secret.
Perry has admitted that, thanks to his drug addiction...He can't remember filming almost a third of the filming of Friends.
Reactions came in strong to the almost unbelievable news...
Ranging from funny quips, to some more heartfelt responses.
