Matthew Perry reportedly suffered minor burns to his forehead when a pyrotechnic stunt went wrong as the former FRIENDS star was preparing to host sports awards the ESPYS in Hollywood on Tuesday (12JUL05).

The actor was struck by a flaming object that fell from the ceiling at the Kodak Theatre.

Perry refused to let the incident phase him and he continued rehearsals for the show and later enjoyed a pre-show party at the Playboy Mansion.

The ESPY Awards took place last night (13JUL05).
