Lisa Kudrow’s Heartfelt Forward for Matthew Perry’s Memoir: ‘He Survived Impossible Odds’

Just one year before his death, Lisa Kudrow penned the forward to Matthew Perry’s memoir Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.

"How's Matthew Perry Doing?"

"I understand why so many people asked it: they love Matthew and they want him to be OK. Me too."

Many were concerned about the 'Friends' star's battle with addiction, including Lisa Kudrow.

"I didn't really try to intervene or confront him, because the little I knew about addiction was that his sobriety was out of my hands."

"So, I just focused on Matthew, who could make me laugh so hard every day, and once a week, laugh so hard I cried and couldn't breathe."

"That guy, with everything he was battling, was  still there."
