Matthew Perry, who is better known for playing the sarcastic, goofy and lovable character Chandler Bing in the Friends TV series, looks very different from his show days.

Perry was recently spotted attending a night-time open-air screening of the original Jurassic Park at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Tuesday (4 July), reported Daily Mail. The 47-year-old looked almost unrecognisable as he spent a low-key US Independence Day by reliving the classic dinosaur film released in 1993.

The actor tried to go incognito as he sported a casual look with a black T-shirt and a huge grey jacket on top, which he teamed up with a baseball cap. He set up his viewing spot on the grass on a picnic rug with a blanket.

Perry – who was recently seen in TV shows The Kennedys and The Good Fight – was seen giving a thumbs up with a hint of a smile on his face before the event started. He shot to fame as the wise-cracking Chandler Bing when he was 25, and starred in the 10 seasons of Friends that ended in 2004.

Fans took to Twitter to comment on Perry's looks, with one fan tweeting, "Matthew Perry unrecognisable" alongside several sad emojis. Others supported the actor and called it a natural ageing process.

One wrote on Twitter, "Mmmmm... probably because Friends was 23 years ago?" Another commented, "Because it was 23 YEARS ago! Well done for pointing out the natural ageing process." A fan even urged "Leave Matthew Perry alone".

Recently, Perry spoke to Variety about a Friends reunion and admitted that it has become his "recurring nightmare". He was quoted as saying, "I have this recurring nightmare – I'm not kidding about this. When I'm asleep, I have this nightmare that we do Friends again and nobody cares. We do a whole series, we come back, and nobody cares about it."

"So if anybody asks me, I'm gonna say no. The thing is: We ended on such a high. We can't beat it. Why would we go and do it again?" he added quashing all reunion hopes.
