Matthew Perry Admits to Once Axing One of Chandler’s ‘Friends’ Storylines — Find out Why!

What a confession!

In a new interview, Matthew Perry admitted he once axed a funny episode plot surrounding his Friends character Chandler Bing simply because he didn’t like it!

“There was a storyline on Friends where Chandler went to a male strip joint because he really liked the sandwiches,” the 47-year-old actor said on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday, May 18.

“I called up [the writers] and said, ‘Let’s not do this one,'” Matthew explained. Frankly, that was probably a good call — that plot detail sounds much more like something Joey Tribbiani would do!

During his candid WWHL chat with host Andy, Matthew additionally revealed he enjoys still receiving residual checks today for his past role on Friends.

“I get a little something and I go, ‘Hey, that’s nice! It’s a really great job I had… I started the job when I was 24. It was amazing. I had the job from 24 to 34, I’ll never have a job like that ever again,” he said.

Matthew starred alongside Matt LeBlanc (Joey), David Schwimmer (Ross Geller), Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), and Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay) on Friends for 10 seasons from 1994 until 2004.
