MATTHEW Perry showed off his impressive weight loss in a rare outing with a ‘Friend.’
The 52-year-old actor recently split from his fiance Molly Hurwitz, and the mystery woman in the new photos resembles her.

Matthew appeared to have lost some weight and gained a companion in the new images.
The Friends alum wore a flannel shirt under a light blue tee as his greying hair was held in place by a pair of sunglasses – he also sported a goatee.
Matthew held a McDonald’s cup after appearing to grab lunch with his new friend – whose identity is currently unknown – in Pacific Palisades, California.
They parked a vehicle and entered the home, with his counterpart wearing jeans shorts with sunglasses while holding a bunch of Mcdonald’s items as they entered the wooden gate.
Matthew has rarely appeared in public lately, but appeared distressed and disheveled as he was seen last October smoking a cigarette after splitting from his fiance Molly.
However, more recently he teased his upcoming book release on Instagram, sharing a photo of the cover along with the release date: “11. 1. 22.”
The book is titled “Friends, Lovers And The Big Terrible Thing” and he looked happy and healthy on the cover.

‘BOOKED’ & BUSY
According to the outlet, the actor “will take readers behind-the-scenes and onto the soundstage of the sitcom while opening up about his private struggles with addiction.”
In the caption of his post, he also promised to tell-all in the memoir, writing: “So much has been written about me in the past. I thought it was time people heard from me.”
Referencing his drug addiction struggles, the actor wrote: “The highs were high, the lows were low. But I have lived to tell the tale, even though at times it looked like I wouldn’t. And it’s all in here.”
He then joked, “I apologize it’s not a pop-up book.”
Fans flooded the comments with positivity, gushing about the cover and how “excited” they were.
One wrote: “This is amazing I can’t wait to hear from the man who is such a talented actor! Playing chandler was genius, but that is only one of your many fantastic roles.”
The actor famously starred as Chandler Bing on the long-running sitcom, alongside Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, from 1994 to 2004 – as well as other projects like the film Fools Rush In.
‘SLURRING HIS WORDS’
Back in May, fans expressed their concern that Matthew had fallen back on old habits when he appeared to slur his words and nod off during a promotional interview for the Friends reunion special.
He sat down with his former castmates for a “three question” interview with People, which saw the group reminisce about their years as friends and co-stars.
However, fans noticed that the Canadian actor was not responding to questions with his normal sharp wit and appeared quiet and distracted.
Despite the speculation, The Sun exclusively revealed that Matthew’s slurred speech was due to emergency dental work and not a drugs relapse.
Matthew’s battled addiction over the years but recently was said to be “sober and doing better.”
MIKE & MOLLY’S SPLIT
The actor split from his fiance Molly a month later in June 2021.
He began dating the literary manager, 29, in 2018 and they had gotten engaged in November 2020.
Matthew confirmed the breakup news to People, sharing in a statement: “Sometimes things just don’t work out and this is one of them. I wish Molly the best.”
However, it was later reported that Molly put their wedding on hold after he “flirted with other women” while they were on a break.
A source told Ok: “It’s got to be upsetting for her to know he was pursuing other girls the moment they split up.
“Matt doesn’t see how he should be punished – he didn’t cheat.
“But Molly wants to take a breather and see where they’re at in a couple of months. She must be asking herself what kind of guy she’s really be marrying.”
