Matthew Perry does a good job of keeping his personal life under wraps. He does such a good job, in fact, that he managed to end a long-term relationship with "Masters of Sex" star Lizzy Caplan without anyone finding out. The couple, who first started dating in 2006, quietly broke up back in 2012, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
"It happened a year and a half ago," the insider says. "They haven't been together for a long time."
Tellingly, Caplan demurred when asked about Perry during a recent interview with the U.K.'s Independent and hinted that she took pride in her anonymity. "I can stand right next to paparazzi, and I do that sometimes," she said. "I'm close with people who are far more famous, and they know how to avoid attention."
That doesn't mean she's hiding, though. The actress, who has also appeared on "True Blood" and "New Girl," was recently spotted on a date with a mystery man at Cleo at the Redbury Hotel in Hollywood.
Perry, for his part, has been busy with work and personal projects. Though his NBC sitcom "Go On" was canceled last spring after just one season, the 44-year-old actor isn't sitting idly by.
He recently turned his Malibu beach house into a sober living facility called Perry House, for men who need help transitioning from rehab to the real world. (Perry himself has a history of drug and alcohol problems.)
"The thing that I'm most proud of in my life," he told "ABC News" earlier this year, "is that if a stranger came up to me and said, 'I can't stop drinking. I can't stop drinking. Can you help me?' I can say, 'Yes, I can help you.'"
