Matthew Perry - Matthew Perry wants to start a family

Matthew Perry wants to settle down and have children.

The 43-year-old actor - who battled addictions to alcohol, Vicodin, methadone and amphetamines during his 10-year stint on sitcom 'Friends' - has finally overcome his issues and wants to finally get married and start a family.

He said: ''I would love to start a family of my own. I think I'd make a great dad and I think shortly I would make a great husband.''

Matthew also admitted acting is no longer as important to him as it used to be and he is instead focusing on having fun and enjoying life.

He told People magazine: ''People are always asking me, 'What's next?' There are a few entertainment things I'm discussing but honestly it's gone down in import for me.

''A year and a half ago I went to the doctor and was told, 'The new prescription for you? 'Go have fun.' Wow that's really freeing.''

The funnyman recently admitted he spent years trying to hide his addictions from his co-stars - who included Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox - and felt ''lonely'' because he had no one to confide in.

Matthew said: ''I've had a life of extreme highs and extreme lows. I was in the white hot flame of fame.

''From an outsider's perspective it would seem like I had it all. It was actually a very lonely time for me because I was suffering from alcoholism.''
