"It clears the deck of all the BS," he explained. "It really gets all of that stuff out of your life, and you start seeing things that are important, like your family and your health and your career and your obligation and your opportunity to serve. It's a tremendous gift in that sense, it's a gift that keeps on taking... no matter how chipper I am about it." RELATED: Michael J.

Instagram The actor eulogizes Matthew Perry for supporting his foundation Fox also paid tribute and reflected on the life of the late Matthew Perry during the annual event gala. He shared how he spent some fun time with the late actor. "He was a hockey player, and we played hockey together," he said. Instagram He further added that Perry was a very selfless person as he was one of the major supporters of his foundation. "I hope this isn't indiscreet, but when they first made their big sale and were made millionaires for the rest of their lives, he wrote a big fat check to the foundation. We were really early on and trying to find our feet. And it was such a vote of confidence," he confessed. "And it wasn't accompanied by any self-aggrandizing or anything, he was just like, ‘Take it and do your best.’ I loved that."
