Friends actor Matthew Perry is gearing up to release an autobiography in late 2022. He recently reveals that he feels it’s time for him to tell his own story “directly from the horse’s mouth”. The actor has said he’s getting ready to release his very own memoir.
Don’t Look Up star shared his idea about autobiography and state that a lot has been told about him in the past and now it is the right time to express his journey by himself only. He told People, “There has been so much written about me by others in the past. I thought it was time people heard it directly from the horse’s mouth. In this case, the horse’s mouth being me.” However, Perry had previously signed a seven-figure deal with Flatiron Books, a division of Macmillan, for the upcoming memoir. Meanwhile, the publication doesn’t yet have a title, and it will be released late next year.
Megan Lynch, the publisher of Flatiron Books, will edit the autobiography of Matthew Perry. Talking to the Deadline, he said, “We need humor, we need catharsis, and we need to agree on something-and Matthew’s extraordinary story, told in his inimitable voice, is that thing. Matthew’s book has unrivaled potential to bring people together, which feels especially galvanizing right now, a time of isolation and division.”
Although, it is not yet known that how much of Perry’s life will be covered in his own book, earlier this year he reunited with his ‘Friends’ co-stars Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer for a long-awaited special, Friends reunion on HBO Max. The special revealed a number of behind-the-scenes secrets from their time on the show and showed the actors reminiscing about being a part of the hit series.
Previously, Matthew spoke about the lasting legacy of the show. He stated, “It was a character-driven funny, not timely funny. They didn’t make timely jokes. They didn’t make jokes about O.J. Simpson. They made character-driven jokes about people and people are going to come back time and time again and watch that.”
