Matthew Perry revealed he was “burned” so badly by women who were after his “money,” that he eventually felt like everyone he dated was going to “annihilate” him.
The “Friends” alum, 53, got candid about looking for love and struggling with addiction ahead of the release of his memoir, “Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.”
“That was me afraid,” he told People in an article published on Wednesday, where he explained why he was always the one to end his relationships.
“That is what I manifest, something that’s wrong with them. And then I break up with them,” Perry continued.
“But there can’t be something wrong with everyone. I’m the common denominator. I left first because I thought they were going to annihilate me.”
The sitcom star said he’s now looking for a partner who’s “self-supporting in every way.”
“Somebody who has their own wealth is a pretty key component for me,” he admitted.
“I got burned a few times by women who wanted my money, not really caring about me … it happens more often than you think.”
Perry is also looking for a woman with “a sense of humor, beautiful inside and out, caring. This is really important, somebody who can have a back and forth with me.”
“The next person I really take seriously is somebody that I’m going to be in love with and not be scared by the things that used to scare me.”
The “Whole Nine Yards” star, who also revealed that his addiction struggles became so severe that he “nearly died,” said he was now confident in his sobriety.
“I’m not afraid of love anymore, so the next girl I go out with better watch out,” he said, noting he thinks he would be a “great dad.”
“I really do,” he added. “I grew up with a lot of little kids around me, and that’s probably why, but I can’t wait.”
He has previously dated the likes of Julia Roberts, Rachel Dunn, Neve Campbell and Lizzy Caplan.
