The Word: Matthew Perry turns his beach house into a sober living facility
Matthew Perry knows what it’s like to hit rock bottom. He famously struggled with alcoholism and drug addiction during his “Friends” heyday. “Eventually things got so bad that I couldn’t hide it, and then everybody knew,” he told People.
Perry eventually sought help, went to rehab, and got his addictions under control. He’s recently decided to help others complete the same journey – he’s turning his Malibu beach house into a men’s sober living facility called Perry House. ”It’s nice for people to see that somebody who once struggled in their life is not struggling any more,” he said.
This is an incredibly generous and thoughtful gesture by the actor. Hopefully the neighbors will agree. Something tells me that Malibu beach dwellers aren’t used to living next to rehab facilities.
Matthew’s “Friends” costar Jennifer Aniston reportedly loves Cali too – so much it’s delaying her wedding. The house is renovated. The chicken coop is furnished. So why don’t lovebirds Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux seem any closer to the altar?
Location, location, location. A source claims that Justin misses his New York City lifestyle and friends, and he’s pushing hard for the couple to spend part of each year here, but Jen wants to stay in Southern California for good.
“He suggested the couple could live in New York City part-time, no more than six months a year (and L.A. the rest of the time),” the source told Radar. “Justin misses the Big Apple, and his friends. His entire life was in New York, and he uprooted his entire life to move to L.A. to be with Jen.”
