So, some internet users hoped he could learn body management from actresses his age.
Although Matt appears to be very nice now, his appearance when he was younger is not remarkable; however, he is not inferior to Xiao Lizi. He was just 27 years old in his prime during the first season of Friends, and he and Matthew Perry, who played Chandler, became the face of the show's male character, attracting the attention of countless girls.

Although the other actresses have not been able to avoid the ravages of time on their faces, they have kept their bodies in excellent condition.
