"Friends" star Matthew Perry has entered a rehabilitation clinic for treatment of an undisclosed condition, the actor's spokeswoman said Monday.

"Following the advice of his doctors, Matthew Perry has entered an undisclosed rehabilitation hospital," publicist Lisa Kasteler said. "Matthew has every intention of completing his treatment so that he can continue his dream of entertaining people and making them laugh."

The statement offered no clues to why the 32-year-old actor needed rehabilitation or where he was hospitalized. Kasteler's office refused to disclose further details.

Perry is one of six co-stars of the wildly popular "Friends," a staple of NBC's Thursday night lineup.

In 1997, he entered a rehabilitation hospital for the "early stages of chemical dependency," Kasteler said at the time. People magazine reported that he became addicted to the painkiller Vicodin after suffering wisdom-tooth problems and injuries from a watercraft accident.

Last June, Perry wrecked his Porsche on the narrow streets of the Hollywood Hills. No one was injured, and investigators said Perry was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The crash occurred the day Perry ended a two-week stay at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for what he said was a stomach illness.
