MATTHEW Perry looked like he could use a good friend, as he was spotted moving himself into his new Los Angeles home.
The actor looked troubled and tired as he worked to unload a truck.
Matthew, 53, has just wrapped up a whirlwind book tour for his memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing: A Candid, Darkly Funny Book.
The Fools Rush In star sipped on Starbucks and dressed casually in a baggy navy top, jeans and sneakers.
Matthew looked nothing like his famous Friends character, Chandler Bing, showing off long gray hair and matching goatee.
He was seen unloading a U-Haul full of fancy household furniture and a custom-made bed.
Matthew could probably use a good night's rest after his book tour.
His autobiography gives readers a glance into his life on and off screen, including his struggles with addiction, which he has openly discussed over the years.
In 2018, when Perry was 49, he suffered a gastrointestinal perforation as a result of extreme opiate usage.
He was given a two percent chance of living after he was comatose for two weeks, and he had to use a colostomy bag while his colon healed.

While his body was relying on the bag, he woke up covered in his own feces "50 to 60" times during the five-month hospital stay.
"'I had sh** all over my face, all over my body, in the bed next door," he confessed. "When it breaks, it breaks. You have to get nurses,"
TOOTH BE TOLD
The actor also revealed he lost all of his top teeth during his harrowing addiction battle, after biting into a piece of peanut butter toast.
He said he carried them in a baggie in his jeans pocket on the way to the dentist to get them fixed.
Matthew's addiction only escalated as Friends grew in popularity.
At the height of the sitcom's success, Matthew said he was consuming 55 Vicodin a day and weighed 128 pounds.
Even a stint in rehab couldn't help.
He described the rehab as being like a prison, joking they may as well have fed him through a slot in a bolted door, adding that he hated the place which wasn't teaching him anything.
The therapists were on the floor below him when he decided to skip the elevator and make a beeline for the stairwell in a state of "total confusion."
Matthew remembered stopping in the stairwell with years of his life playing through his mind like a montage, from being abandoned by his father as a child, to growing up playing tennis and pining for his mother's affection.
"I'll never be able to fully explain what happened next, but all of a sudden, I started slamming my head against the wall, as hard as humanly possible," Matthew recalled.
"Fifteen-love. SLAM! Thirty-love. SLAM! Forty-love. SLAM! Game. Ace after ace, volley after perfect volley, my head the ball, the wall of cement the court, all the pain on the cement and on the wall, and all over my face, completing the Grand Slam, the umpire screaming, 'GAME, SET AND MATCH, UNACCOMPANIED MINOR, SIX LOVE, NEEDS LOVE, SIX LOVE. SCARED OF LOVE.'
"There was blood everywhere," he concluded, saying after "eight of these mind-numbing slams" someone stopped and asked him "Why are you doing that?"
Matthew said: "I gazed at her, and looking like Rocky Balboa from every one of those last scenes, I said: 'Because I couldn't think of anything better to do.' Stairwells."
