Matt LeBlanc: ‘I’m Not F*cking Joey’
Word of warning: should you ever run into Matt LeBlanc on the street, do NOT approach him by saying, “How YOU do-in?” Unless you are Wendy Williams, of course. And seriously, if he’s out partying and boozing, as is the case in these photos from June, just pretend Friends never happened.
The actor recently spoke with a UK Mirror reporter this week and the interviewer began with that opening line and the response was less than stellar.
“I’m not Joey. Don’t you dare call me Joey. The papers say I’m finished, so don’t call me fucking Joey. I want to leave that all behind. I’m moving on,”
Oh, but it didn’t stop. “I’m not Joey. For the last time. I’m not f**king Joey. It’s Matt. Matt LeBlanc. Joey’s in the past. I’m trying to do something new,” he yelled.
Then why in the world would he would have done a show called Joey if he wanted so desperately to get away from the character? Oh LeBlanc, I have no idea where your career can go from here.
