Matthew Perry suffered after jet ski accident

Jul 6 2013, 5:52pm CDT | by

Matthew Perry says Vicodin made him feel "better than ever" after a Jet Ski accident.

The former 'Friends' star, who battled a number of addictions during his 10-year stint on the sitcom, became reliant on the powerful painkiller after a doctor prescribed it to him for injuries he sustained from crashing in the water in 1997.

Matthew, who had two failed stints in rehab before getting clean, admits to People magazine that he already had a problem with booze at the time but when his doctor told him: "'Here, take this.' I did, and I felt better than I ever felt in my entire life. I had a big problem with pills and alcohol, and I couldn't stop."

The 43-year-old actor is now "in a really good place" and hopes to settle down and have children in the near future.

He said: "I would love to start a family of my own. I think I'd make a great dad and I think shortly I would make a great husband."

Matthew also admits acting is no longer as important to him as it used to be and he is instead focusing on having fun and enjoying life.

The 'Go On' star explained: "People are always asking me, 'What's next?' There are a few entertainment things I'm discussing but honestly it's gone down in import for me.

"A year and a half ago I went to the doctor and was told, 'The new prescription for you? 'Go have fun.' Wow that's really freeing."

12 Things You Don't Know About Friends

Sep 18 2014 5:07pm CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

It’s 20 years since Friends first premiered. My darlings, it was two decades ago, on September 22, 1994, that we first met Ross and Rachel and Chandler and Monica and Joey and Phoebe. They became embedded in the fabric of our lives. We cried with them. We rooted for them, even though they were downtowners, not Upper East Siders like us. Still, my minions and I loved Monica’s OCD cleanliness. We laughed at how Chandler couldn’t go five minute ...

Friends Cast: Where Are They Now?

Sep 11 2014 11:25am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

Thursday nights just aren't the same since Friends went off the air in 2004 (though we DO have The Vampire Diaries and that is pretty fantastic). From 1994 on, we laughed, we cried, and then we laughed again at the happenings of our favorite friends as they navigated life in New York City. In honor of the 20th anniversary of the premiere of Friends, we thought we'd take a look back at the cast and answer the question: Where a ...
