If you’d asked us which former Friends cast member was due for a public meltdown, Matt LeBlanc wouldn’t have even made the short list (Oh, and don’t think we’ve given up on you just yet, Aniston). However, against all odds it was in fact Matt LeBlanc who screamed at a reporter for calling him “Joey”. The trouble started when Matt bumped into the table where a Mirror UK reporter was seated. The reporter joked, “You all right, Joey? How YOU do-in?” Why would you put your hand a tiger’s cage if you didn’t want to get bit, we ask? Just why?
LeBlanc apparently lost it, shouting “I’m not Joey. Don’t you dare call me Joey. The papers say I’m finished, so don’t call me f***ing Joey. I want to leave that all behind. I’m moving on.” Yikes, “how you doin” was going to be our intro line if we ever met LeBlanc in real life. Glad someone took that one for a test-drive before we did!
Continued LeBlanc on his rant, “I’m not Joey. For the last time. I’m not f***ing Joey. It’s Matt. Matt LeBlanc. Joey’s in the past. I’m trying to do something new.” Matt as been searching for another hit after trying his hand at failed projects like his sitcom Joey andÃ¢â‚¬Â¦umÃ¢â‚¬Â¦well, we’re sure there have been others. Plenty of others. We bet it would be hard to move past your role as everyoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fifth favorite Friend (sorry Courtney Cox Arquette!), so we hope his new British project Episodes pans out. Or LeBlanc can just go home to his mansion and pet his millions of dollars, because oh right, he was on Friends.
