Matthew Perry Shared Final Instagram Post from Hot Tub 5 Days Before His Death


Beloved ‘Friends’ actor, Matthew Perry last posted on Instagram page five days before his sudden death at age 54.

The actor shared a nighttime photo of himself inside a hot tub on Monday, Oct. 23, writing in the caption: “Oh, so warm water swirling around makes you feel good? I’m Mattman.”

“Mattman” is a name he’d used in recent days while posting on social media, often including references and imagery related to Batman.

The day before the hot tub photo, he wrote alongside a video of the moon, “Do you understand what I’m trying to tell you? – I’m Mattman.” And on Tuesday, Perry posted on X, “Let’s make stigmas a stigma. -I’m Mattman #mentalhealth.”

But it wasn’t all Mattman: on Oct. 15, Perry had shared a rare photo of himself with his father, actor John Bennett Perry. “Here is me, and my father John, both holding a beverage,” he wrote in the caption, garnering hundreds of thousands of likes from followers.

TMZ first reported on Oct. 28, citing law enforcement sources, that Perry was found dead in a jacuzzi at a home in Los Angeles. No drugs had been found at the scene, the outlet added.

According to the outlet, no foul play was suspected, and first responders were reportedly called to the residence for cardiac arrest.


Perry released a memoir entitled Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing in November 2022. He began the book by recounting a time he nearly died a few years prior at 49, and got candid about his struggles with addiction.

The actor, who famously played Chandler Bing on the beloved sitcom Friendsopened up about addiction in a wide-ranging interview with PEOPLE in October 2022, also sharing his hopes for the future, including wanting to become a parent.

Matthew Perry said at the time about writing his book, “I wanted to share when I was safe from going into the dark side of everything again. I had to wait until I was pretty safely sober — and away from the active disease of alcoholism and addiction — to write it all down.”

“And the main thing was, I was pretty certain that it would help people,” added Perry.
