We all loved him as Joey in the rested hit comedy sitcom friends.
But it seems the star doesn't realize that he can quit being in character and be himself—unless he is being himself!
Matt LeBlanc has been beloved without question since his stint on Friends, but he proved at the 2016 Emmys on Sunday night that he’s shouldn’t be held on such a high pedestal. Look, he’s not Joey Tribbiani, but he does share some of his character’s disgusting characteristics — like objectifying women.
During the Emmys Joey emerged in all his foolishness. LeBlanc got gross about Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke during an interview on the red carpet, which no one found the least bit funny. Not at all the right sort of words to use for a highly talented and beautiful star of a hit television show.
LeBlanc and Clarke met on The Graham Norton Show a few months ago and posted a picture together. Because of this one-time encounter, E! asked the Friends actor if he watches Game of Thrones, to which he responded in this shocking manner:
“I saw the first season and then kind of fell out of touch with it… And I guess that’s when she started getting naked, so I need to catch up.” Yeah, that’s why he needs to catch up, not because everyone’s obsessed with the show’s brilliance and Clarke’s incredible acting.
Matt give Joey a rest will you!
But we are not altogether sure that he can.
Turns out he’s not that different from the character he played for a decade who only cared about getting women in bed.
