Matthew Perry, who played Chandler Bing in the hit US sitcom Friends, has pledged to remove "mean" references to fellow actor Keanu Reeves from future copies of his autobiography

In the book, Perry made several derogatory remarks about Reeves, including questioning why he was still alive while other talented actors like River Phoenix had died.

Speaking at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, Perry admitted that his comments about Reeves were "stupid" and "mean," and that he had since apologized publicly to the John Wick star.

He also pledged that any future versions of his book would not mention Reeves by name.

He also paid tribute to River Phoenix, his co-star in the 1988 film A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon, describing him as a "genius" who was "too beautiful for this world."

Phoenix died in 1993 at the age of 23 from a drug overdose, while Heath Ledger, another actor referenced by Perry, died from an accidental overdose of prescription medication in 2008.

Perry's memoir, published last year, details his struggle with substance abuse and addiction throughout his career.
