Matthew Perry was seen heading out and about in Beverly Hills and his Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston will be pleased to see he was taking precautions with his mask.

Stepping out from an office building, the actor, 50, who is best known for playing Chandler Bing, in the iconic US sitcom, made sure to take precautions during the coronavirus pandemic.

Lockdown restrictions are beginning to ease in Los Angeles and citizens are being advised to wear face masks, covering their nose and mouths, while out in the city.

Perry clearly took note and had his mask hooked onto his ears and sat just below his chin, ready to pull up over his face.

He was spotted heading to his car while dressed down in an open denim shirt, dark grey t-shirt and loose trousers.

And his appearance will probably get the approval of his pal Jennifer, who has been urging fans to ‘wear their god damn mask’ amid an uprising among people in the US claiming doing so ‘violates their rights’.

Posing in her own mask, Jennifer stressed that wearing the protective equipment shouldn’t be ‘up for debate’, as it is necessary in controlling the spread of coronavirus and preventing a second wave and ultimately more deaths.

Jennifer pleaded with her followers not to politicise something so simple that could save lives.

Already there have been over 129,000 deaths in the US from Covid-19, while there are currently over 2.67million cases of coronavirus in America alone.

Jennifer wrote on Instagram: ‘I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down… jobs are being lost… health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough.’

Jen continued: ‘I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe.

‘People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate 🙏🏼 .’

She signed off: ‘If you care about human life, please… just #wearadamnmask 😷 and encourage those around you to do the same ❤️.’

Her impassioned post won the support of many of her celebrity friends, including ex-husband Justin Theroux, Julia Roberts and her This Morning Show co-star Reese Witherspoon who replied: ‘Exactly.’

Jennifer’s post comes amid the excitement for the upcoming Friends reunion special. Plans for the special had been put on the back burner due to coronavirus, but it’s been reported filming could go ahead in two months time.

Although, Jennifer has admitted she doesn’t know anything about the show, that will see her reunite with Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Courteney Cox.

Speaking with Lisa, who plays Phoebe Buffay, to Variety, Jen revealed that the show won’t be scripted but admitted there was little else she knew.

‘We don’t know anything about it,’ she said, while Lisa teased: ‘What we do know, we can’t say. I think we’re meant to be surprised by some things.’
