Here’s a tip for reporters that are interviewing Matt LeBlanc - don’t call him Joey because he will take the head off you. A reporter in London found this out the hard way.
Mollie King, who works for the Mirror, bumped into Matt at a party the other night and he knocked into her table sending glasses flying everywhere. She joked with him by saying “You all right, Joey? How YOU do-in?” Matt, who played Joey for over 10 seasons on Friends, didn’t like the joke and went on a rant saying…
“I’m not Joey. Don’t you dare call me Joey. The papers say I’m finished, so don’t call me f**king Joey. I want to leave that all behind. I’m moving on. 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.”
That’s funny because he recently said that if people see him as Joey then it means he done his job and he take’s it as a compliment. Maybe he should go back and smoke more weed to relax himself.
