Matthew Perry praised for looking good as he promotes Friends merch after 'slurring his words' in reunion special

MATTHEW Perry has been praised for "looking good" while promoting Friends merchandise after "slurring his words" in the reunion.

The actor, 51, looked happy and healthy while wearing a white hoodie bearing the Chandler Bing-style slogan "Could I be any more me?"

Matthew flashed a smile at the camera as he sat in a chair for the photo, which he captioned: "Could I BE More ME?

"I'm releasing a new limited edition merchandise collection only available for three weeks."

He also shared a snap with his assistant standing next to him, which he captioned: "Could I be any more grateful for my assistant?!

The star's fans flocked to the comments to praise his appearance, with one writing: "Beyond happy to see you back on your feet."

Another enthused, "You look so good" while a third wrote: "You look great."

Earlier this week, Matthew sparked concern as he appeared to slur his words and nod off while filming the reunion special.

He sat down with the beloved cast of Friends for a "three question" interview with People on Wednesday.

The group seemed in high spirits as they reminisced on their years as friends and co-stars, and recalled funny stories from their time on set.

Fans noticed, however, that the Canadian actor was not responding to questions with his normal sharp wit and appeared quiet and distracted.

Several took to the comments section to express their concern over Matthew, who has struggled with addiction since his time on the award-winning show.

"Seeing Matthew sad is heartbreaking," one wrote, adding: "I hope he gets better soon, I don't know how I'm going to enjoy the reunion when Matthew is this sad."

"This felt so good seeing but also broke my heart seeing Matthew Perry like this," another admitted.

Matthew has struggled with addiction since his early 20s, after joining the cast of Friends as Chandler Bing in 1994.

The Massachusetts native once even admitted to "not remembering three years" of filming due to his reliance on drugs and alcohol.

The TV star had his first stint in rehab in 1997, though he has returned to facilities several times over the past two decades.

Matthew's alcohol addiction has caused him many health issues throughout the years, including pancreatitis and gastrointestinal perforation.

He got engaged to 29-year-old literary manager Molly Hurwitz in November after two years of dating.

“I decided to get engaged," he told People.

"Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time.”

The Sun exclusively revealed their relationship in December 2019, as the pair enjoyed a romantic Christmas together.

Molly, a talent manager and producer, appeared to confirm the secret romance on social media as she spent Christmas at his swanky LA penthouse.

She posted about her “boyfriend” on Instagram alongside a photograph apparently taken at his $35million home in Century City.
