Prior to his tragic death, 54-year-old actor Matthew Perry revealed that he no longer watches "Friends" for one very specific reason.

Matthew Perry was best known for his role as Chandler Bing on the famous sitcom, ‘Friends,’ where he appeared alongside Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller/Bing), David Schwimmer (Ross Geller), Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani), and Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay).

When promoting his 2022 memoir "Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing," Perry opened up about his drug and alcohol addiction, explaining that that is the reason why he could never watch the hit sitcom --  because it was a trigger.

"[I] can't watch the show because I was brutally thin," he admitted.

"Because I could go drinking, opiates, drinking, cocaine. I could tell season by season by how I looked," he continued. "That's why I don't want to watch it because that's what I see."

Matthew Perry starred alongside Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, and David Schwimmer in the hit sitcom "Friends." The show first premiered in 1994 and went on to film 236 episodes across 10 seasons.

It is still one of the most beloved and most talked about shows to this day.

Ahead of their 2021 "Friends" reunion, the cast opened up about the number one rule they had put in place throughout filming.

“There was a rule that we had, it was really important to the six of us, that we kept a friendship; that we were friends. And if we were hooking up or if there was any strangeness going on, that might mess with things,” Perry said in May 2021 when promoting the “Friends: The Reunion” HBO Max special. “So, we kept a friendship, and we did become really good friends. And we are really good friends to this day."

Last year, Matthew Perry reflected on his life, fame, and his struggle with addiction.

"The best thing about me, bar none, is that if somebody comes to me and says, 'I can't stop drinking, can you help me?' I can say 'yes' and follow up and do it," he said in an interview.

The late actor then admitted, "When I die, I don't want 'Friends' to be the first thing that's mentioned. I want that to be the first thing that's mentioned. And I'm gonna live the rest of my life proving that."
