Jennifer Aniston’s four-word warning to Matthew Perry that ‘saved his life’

Jennifer Aniston issued a four-word warning to her late Friends co-star, Matthew Perry amid what he thought was his ‘secret’ battle with

alcohol at the height of their fame.

Perry, who starred as Chandler Bing in the hit US sitcom, was found dead at his Los Angeles home on Saturday evening after reportedly drowning in his hot tub. Police sources have indicated that no drugs were found at the scene and there is no indication of foul play.

In a candid interview about struggling with substance abuse at the height of his 2000s fame, Perry, who was 54, revealed last year that Aniston was the only star to confront him about his drinking. The actor recalled his colleague, who played Rachel Green, approached him on set telling him:” We know you’re drinking”.

Perry told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer: “At the time I should have been the toast of the town, I was in a dark room meeting nothing but drug dealers and completely alone. [Aniston] was the one that reached out the most. Describing her address as a “scary moment”, Perry confessed: “I’m really grateful to her for that.”
