Wander the rooms of the beachfront house Perry offloaded before moving to Sunset Beach Point…
Two days back, all those over-forties whose formative years were spent thrilling to Matthew Perry’s lovable smart-ass Chandler Bing on Friends, were saddened to hear he’d been found dead in his LA hot tub.
Shocked, not so much.
Matthew Perry, who was fifty-four, had a real tight relationship with painkillers, snacking on fifty-five Vicodins a day.
“I would fake back injuries. I would fake migraine headaches. I had eight doctors going at the same time,” Matthew Perry told the NY Times.
“I would wake up and have to get 55 Vicodin that day, and figure out how to do it. When you’re a drug addict, it’s all math. I go to this place, and I need to take three. And then I go to this place, and I’m going to take five because I’m going to be there longer.
“It’s exhausting but you have to do it or you get very, very sick. I wasn’t doing it to feel high or to feel good. I certainly wasn’t a partyer; I just wanted to sit on my couch, take five Vicodin and watch a movie. That was heaven for me. It no longer is.”
Yesterday, we took you on a little stroll through his Sunset Point Beach-adjacent house.
Today, come and wander the rooms of the Malibu house Perry offloaded shortly before moving to the mid-century masterpiece at 18038 Blue Sail Dr, Pacific Palisades.
Perry bought the two-storey Malibu joint for twelve mill and lived in for a decade before selling for thirteen as he downsized to his final address.
It boasted five-and-a-half-thousand square feet of lebensraum (as Hamas and their ilk like to say), a master bedroom that spanned the width of the beachfront balcony, a jacuzzi (naturally) and movie theatre.
Preferable, I think, to the Blue Sail Drive place.
