Taking a page out of former costar Matt LeBlanc’s book, Matthew Perry refuses to work too hard at hiding the gray.

Asked if he’d resist covering up any silver streaks, the handsome-as-ever actor, who turned 40 last year, told a Television Critics Association panel while touting his new ABC sitcom, Mr. Sunshine: “I think so, until it doesn’t look [right] and then I’ll change it. But I’m fine with the fact that some of my hair is gray. I think if it was all gray overnight that would be scary.”

The former Chandler Bing of Friends was equally relaxed about having hit the milestone last Aug. 19, saying, “It just happened a year ago. So, it’s okay.”
