Twenty years ago, the people in Friends were some of the most famous people in the world. They were in what is now one of the most popular sitcoms ever. But since then, a lot has changed. For example, actors Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox have only improved, while others haven’t been as lucky. Matt LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani on Friends, took a break from acting after his spin-off show Joey was cancelled. He said he felt “burned out” and didn’t want to leave the house. Matthew Perry, who played Chandler Bing on Friends, has been honest about the highs and lows of his life, including drug use. After the NBC comedy show ended in 2004, he got a few fun parts, but we haven’t seen him in a movie or TV show in the last few years.
Perry hasn’t been on TV since 2017, when he played Ted Kennedy in The Kennedys After Camelot. Mike Kristeva in The Good Fight, and Oscar Madison in The Odd Couple. Friends: The Reunion, an unscripted special, brought Perry back together with his Friends co-stars. Perry made a cameo in the 2021 Netflix movie. Don’t Look Up, but it was cut out of the final version.
Matthew Perry’s money situation
Fans might be surprised to learn that Perry still lives large and has a very high net worth. Celebrity Net Worth says that the star of 17 Again has a net worth of about $120 million! The site says that he’s been in over the years in addition to his pay for Friends and other movies and TV shows. He also gets royalties from the long-running sitcom. It has been said that the prominent cast members of Friends could earn between $10 million and $20 million in royalties each year. Since neither the stars nor NBC have confirmed this, we’ll take it with a grain of salt.
Fans of Friends hope to see Matthew Perry on TV again in a new role, but we’ll have to wait and see if and when that happens.
