Actor Matthew Perry is sitting down for a candid interview with Diane Sawyer!
Perry will discuss his past struggle with addiction, as well as how he’s dealt with fame and success.
Matthew will also detail his near-death experience, when he was hospitalized at 49 after his colon burst due to opioid overuse.
The “Friends” star was in a coma for two weeks and hospitalized for five months. Perry then had to use a colostomy bag for nine months.
In a trailer for the raw interview, Matthew told Diane, “I was in a coma and escaped death very narrowly.”
Of the height of his fame, Perry admitted, “I was in a dark room, meeting with nothing but drug dealers and completely alone.”
In the teaser, Perry revealed that he was on “55 Vicodin a day” at one point in his life.
Matthew also showed his appreciation to “Friends” co-star Jennifer Aniston, who “reached out the most” amid his struggles.
Matthew’s interview airs on ABC October 28 at 8/7c.
Perry is currently promoting his memoir “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.”
