The person concerned had undergone numerous detoxification treatments and had suffered several hospitalizations because of this: “I played in Friends from 24 to 34 years old.

I already was before Friendsbut it’s a progressive disease”, he explained in 2022, while the actor was promoting his book Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing.
