Matthew Perry Reveals Three-Month Hospitalization Following Surgery


Friends alum Matthew Perry penned his first tweet since March 23 on Friday to announce that he has spent the last three months in the hospital.


“Three months in a hospital bed. Check,” the actor wrote. The tweet comes after it was first reported  in August that Perry had undergone surgery. A rep for the actor told People at the time that he “recently underwent surgery in a Los Angeles hospital to repair a gastrointestinal perforation. He is grateful for the concern and asks for continued privacy as he heels.”


The outlet reported on Saturday that Perry was heading home after his recent hospitalization.


“When you’re having a bad day, the best thing you can do is call somebody and ask them how they’re doing,” Perry added, “and actually pay attention and listen to the answer to get out of your own head.”


Perry most recently appeared onscreen in 2017’s television miniseries The Kennedys: Decline and Fall, in which he played Ted Kennedy. He also appeared in CBS’ The Good Fight as Mike Kresteva.

The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to Perry’s reps for comment.
