Matthew Perry of “Friends” fame has listed his Malibu beach house for $14 million. That’s $2 million more than the actor paid nine years ago.
Spanning 5,500 square feet, the wood-and-glass house overlooks the ocean from two stories of modern indoor-outdoor living spaces.
A two-sided fireplace anchors the main level, separating the dining area and modern kitchen from a living room. There are four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, as well as a movie theater with tiered seating.
Perry, 51, has kept busy since his days playing Chandler Bing on “Friends,” appearing on the shows “Mr. Sunshine,” “The Good Wife” and “The Odd Couple.” More recently, he played Edward M. Kennedy on the television miniseries “The Kennedys: After Camelot.”

Pop star and “American Idol” judge Katy Perry has listed her secluded retreat in the Beverly Hills Post Office area for $7.95 million. She and actor-fiancé Orlando Bloom recently had a daughter.
The nearly one-acre property centers on a traditional-style home of a little more than 4,400 square feet. A spacious motor court, a landscaped yard and an oval-shaped swimming pool complete the grounds.
White walls and hardwood floors define the main living spaces, which sit between wings that bookend the home. One wing holds a bedroom suite with an office/gym, and the other houses the primary suite with a lounge area and dual closets.
Perry, 35, has released six studio albums over the last two decades with hits including “Roar,” “Firework,” “Teenage Dream” and “I Kissed a Girl.” She released her latest record, “Smile,” in August.
