Matthew Perry was ‘sober’ 2 weeks before death, ‘Friends’ creator says

“Friends” actor Matthew Perry left behind many people who cared for him, including the creators of his hit show, Marta Kauffman and David Crane.

The two spoke with Perry weeks before he tragically died, and they reflected on their last conversations.

“He was happy and chipper. He didn’t seem weighed down by anything. He was in a really good place, which is why this seems so unfair,” Kauffman told “Today.” 

“He was emotionally in a good place, he looked good, he quit smoking… he was sober,” she remarked. 

“I lost a friend, in multiple ways and what’s amazing is the outpouring from the fans who lost a friend of theirs too. I hope wherever he is, he feels it,” Kauffman concluded.
