Matthew starred in US sitcom Friends from 1992 until its final episode in 2004.
He previously opened up about his substance abuse problems while he filmed the show, and has claimed that he doesn't remember three years of it.
Speaking to ABC news a few years ago, he said: "Mostly it was drinking, you know, and opiates.
"I think I was pretty good at hiding it, you know, but, you know, eventually people were aware.
Matthew briefly entered rehab in 1997, and again in 2001 to treat his substance abuse issues.
He subsequently admitted that he struggles to look at photos of himself during those days, saying: "I honestly recoil. It’s scary to look at that. I was a sick guy."
