  • Kathleen Turner Friends Interview

"Matthew Perry recently underwent surgery in a Los Angeles hospital to fix a gastrointestinal perforation", the actor's rep said in a statement to People on Tuesday.

The "War of the Roses" star sat down for a lengthy chat with the outlet, where she spilled some '80s Hollywood secrets, dished on her unpleasant experience on the set of "Friends" and had some choice words for Donald Trump, Nicolas Cage and Burt Reynolds.

A gastrointestinal perforation is also known as a ruptured bowel and can occur along any point in the wall of the gastrointestinal tract including the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine.

When it comes to his health, he's been open about battling addiction, previously stating that he has suffered with alcohol and vicodin addiction, completing two rehab stays.

Although his character was famed for witty one-liners, he told the BBC in 2016: "I don't remember three years of it". I called my husband and said, 'I don't know what to do.' He said, 'You just do the job.' It got to be very hostile because the crew began taking sides.

In 2015, he told The Hollywood Reporter in a video for Phoenix House, a California-based treatment centre: "You can't have a drug problem for 30 years and then expect to have it be solved in 28 days".


The former Friends star is on the mend after undergoing a recent surgery, his rep tells ET.

"Getting sober is a really hard thing to do".

Despite the previous comments, Turner said that their camaraderie on screen was palpable, and she admired that a lot.

"I've had a lot of ups and downs in my life".

Matthew shot to fame in the 1990s as the charismatic and beloved Chandler Bing in the hugely success United States series Friends.

Friends aired its last episode in 2004, however all 10 series were released on Netflix in January this year. "I can help you, '" he told ABC News. We can't beat it.
