Matthew Perry succeeds with a little help from him Friends.
On Monday’s episode of SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Livehost Andy Cohen asked the actor about his residual income from the hit sitcom where he played Chandler Bing.
“You talked to Diane Sawyer about revival Friends over the last few years, and it made me wonder,” Cohen, 54, began. “Is the Friends checks coming in today, would you characterize them as generous checks? Or would you say it’s a trickle at this point?”

In response, the Friends, Lovers and the Big Awful Thing author, 53, quipped, “Well, yesterday I bought Iowa.”
After Cohen asked again if the checks were “extensive,” Perry replied: “They’re not bad.”
The actor explained, “And they come in the form of a text: ‘You’ve just done this.’ And I go, ‘Oh, great.’ “

In Perry’s interview with Cohen, he also talked about his dating life, telling the host that he “couldn’t be more single.”
After briefly touching on his previous experience with dating apps, he said he prefers offline dating. “I’m gone forever,” he told Cohen. “It’s not the way to meet people, I don’t think. I’m not sure how to meet people, but it’s not the way to do it.”
As for whether or not he’s looking for a partner who’s also sober, Perry said, “That would be nice. But it’s not a necessity.”
“You know, I wouldn’t like to be with someone who drank so much that you couldn’t recognize them,” Perry explained. “That wouldn’t be good… but I don’t have any rules about that.”
