Elizabeth Hurley on Matthew Perry: Working with him was a nightmare

In fact, the dish is best served cold.

Elizabeth Hurley, 57, is the latest of many listeners to have spoken out about Berry, 53, after releasing his memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing” filled with anecdotes about his career, relationships and personal life.

The British actress, who starred in “Serving Sara” with Perry in 2002, has only read parts of Perry’s book even though she has seen firsthand the severity of his addiction.

“I haven’t actually read the book yet, but I did read [excerpts] Of it”, the star of “Royal Family” revealed to Yahoo.

“It’s very interesting,” Hurley added. “He is a very funny writer like a very funny guy. He is an incredibly talented comedian… his way of words is fantastic.”

The model continued, “I have very fond memories of him. To be honest, working with him at the time was a nightmare, and as it is now known, our movie was discontinued due to his addiction.”

Hurley was referring to the closing of “Serving Sara,” in which Berry plays a process valet tasked with servicing Hurley’s character’s divorce papers.

“We were in a force majeure and had to sit at home for a while and play our thumbs,” she said.

Hurley continued, “It was tough, and obviously he was going through a tough time, but he was still very charming and a great person to work with. But you can see that he was definitely struggling.”

Perry described his drug addiction in his memoirs and was candid about his sober journey.

The Canadian native is perhaps best known for his role as Chandler Bing in the NBC sitcom Friends, which he starred in from 1994 until 2004.

Berry’s memoir “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Things” is now available.

He filmed “Serving Sara” while working on the hit show while he was at the height of his addiction.

The “17 Again” star revealed to Diane Sawyer in a tell-all interview that aired late last month that he dropped Xanax, Methadone, and a quart of vodka a day during that time.

“It was filmed in Dallas and I was shooting ‘Friends’ at the same time, so my workload doubled. I was flying on a private plane drinking vodka from a water bottle,” he said.

I weigh 155 lbs, on my way to 128 lbs. I feel so sorry for this guy, he’s going through a lot, and I,” Perry continued. “And I remember that, and I didn’t understand what was going on.

“But again, I’m sorry, and I’m so grateful I’m not like that anymore.”
