Uh oh. Matthew Perry’s former Friends costars are “worried sick about [his] health,” an insider told In Touch exclusively — just days before Courteney Cox and Matthew’s recent hangout. “Court, in particular, is extremely concerned,” they added.
The brunette beauty, 55, had fans riled up when she posted a photo of herself with her former TV husband on Instagram on November 7. “Guess who I had lunch with today … I KNOW!! Could I BE any happier? #RealFriends,” the actress wrote. Of course, their castmates couldn’t help but show some love for the duo in the comments section. “Lucky Lucky. #BeautifulPeople,” Lisa Kudrow wrote, while Jennifer Aniston chimed in, writing, “MATTY!! I LOVE YOU, GUYS.”
However, Court’s followers were quick to point out that the 50-year-old actor didn’t look too great. One person wrote, “Seriously, nobody is going to say anything about his face?! What happened to him?” while another echoed, “Even I was wondering something is off about his face.”
Just a few days earlier, the actor was spotted looking unkempt after a dinner date in West Hollywood on November 4. “Matthew was disheveled, he seemed really out of it,” another source exclusively told In Touch about his outing. “He was laughing, swerving and swaying.”
Matthew appeared to be with a mystery woman who looked like she was trying to make the Massachusetts native feel better. “She felt sorry for him. It didn’t appear like a girlfriend situation at all. She was definitely comforting him, rubbing his arm, trying to talk to him about getting home, getting some rest. He was very messy, sloppy,” the insider added. “He looked like a homeless man.”
Later on, the woman wanted to make sure Matthew got home in one piece. “He did not drive. The girl got him a car, I think it was an Uber,” the source said. “He didn’t look good at all, definitely didn’t seem to care about his appearance or anyone seeing him. It was kind of sad.”
The comedian has struggled with his sobriety in the past, and went to rehab in 1997, 2001 and 2011. “I couldn’t stop. Eventually, things got so bad that I couldn’t hide it, and everybody knew,” he said in 2013. “You can’t have a drug problem for 30 years and then expect to have it be solved in 28 days. Getting sober is really a hard thing to do.”
We hope his friends and family can help him through this tough time.
