Morning Brew is read by more than 3 million people; you should too! Thank you for registering! Matthew Perry admitted that he smashed a hole in Jennifer Aniston’s dressing room wall on the “Friends” set after he got the news about Chris Farley’s passing.

The 53-year-old Perry included the incident in his upcoming November 1 book, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.” The actor talked about how his opiate and alcohol addictions took hold of him early in his career in an excerpt from the book, which was published by The Sunday Times . He was struggling with addiction at the same time as Farley, who passed away at age 33 from a drug overdose, Rolling Stone reported .

In 1997, Perry and Farley co-starred in ‘Almost Heroes’ , a film best recognized for Perry’s portrayal of Chandler Bing on “Friends.” Perry claimed to have been using Vicodin, the brand name for a painkiller that mixes the narcotic hydrocodone with the over-the-counter pain medication acetaminophen, Healthline reported , at the time, and claimed to be taking up to 55 pills each day.

Chris Farley passed away, Perry wrote. “His illness had advanced more quickly than mine had.” (Plus, we did not share my healthy horror of the word “heroin.”)

He had a strong response to Farley’s passing. When I learned the truth, I tore a hole through the wall of Jennifer Aniston’s dressing room, he claimed. Aniston, 53, co-starred with Perry on the NBC popular series “Friends” for all 10 seasons.

In addition, Perry claimed that two weeks after Farley’s passing, he had to advertise their movie, which he claimed the two “barely” completed because of their addictions.

Perry writes, “I found myself publicly discussing his drug and alcohol-related demise.” I said, “I was high the whole time.”
No one knew, he continued, not his friends or family.

His “Friends” cast mates and crew eventually learned the truth. Aniston once walked up to him and stated she could smell alcohol on him, so she knew he was drinking. Perry writes, “To be confronted by Jennifer Aniston was devastating.”

However, he said he was “grateful” for Aniston speaking up looking back during a sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer for ABC News on Friday to discuss his memoir.

In the interview, Perry referred to Aniston as “Jenny” and said of her, “She was the one that reached out the most.” I’m really appreciative of her for that, he continued.
