Matthew Perry doesn’t think his former “Friends” co-stars will be interested in reading his new memoir about his decades-long battle with addiction.

Perry, 53, told GQ in an interview published Thursday that as of now, none of his co-stars besides Lisa Kudrow, who wrote the foreword, have read “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing” — and he doesn’t expect that to change.

“Why would they read it? I don’t know. Because, you know, who cares? Addicts are going to care about this, and fans of ‘Friends’ are going to care about this. But the cast is not going to really care about this,” the actor told the magazine.

Kudrow, 59, shares in her opening of the book, which hits stores Nov. 1, that reading Perry’s story was the “first time [she heard] what living with and surviving his addiction really was.”

“Matthew has told me some things, but not in this kind of detail. He’s now letting us into Matthew’s head and heart in honest and very exposed detail,” she writes in part.

Despite Perry’s belief that his other castmates — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc — won’t give his book a read, that didn’t stop him from writing about them and sharing some juicy details about his time on the NBC sitcom.
