Furious Matt LeBlanc Launched Foul-Mouthed Rant at Reporters


Matt LeBlanc
Seemingly growing tired of fans still greeting him with his 'Friends' character Joey's catchphrase, Matt LeBlanc reportedly became enraged during a London Fashion Week party.


Matt LeBlanc is so fed up with fans referring to him as his "Friends" character Joey he launched into a foul-mouthed rant at reporters on Tuesday, September 21 insisting the show is "in the past". The star rose to fame as lovable character Joey Tribbiani in the hit U.S. sitcom in the 1990s alongside Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer.

LeBlanc went on to film two seasons of spin-off show Joey when "Friends" ended in 2004, but he has failed to make a mark in the industry following the program's cancellation. The actor has seemingly grown tired of fans still greeting him with Joey's catchphrase "How you doin'?" and he reportedly became enraged during a London Fashion Week party on Tuesday when he heard the iconic comment, according to Britain's Daily Mirror.

He reportedly ranted, "I'm not Joey. Don't you dare call me Joey. The papers say I'm finished so don't you 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."

In a recent interview, LeBlanc insisted he didn't mind still being linked with his famous "Friends" alter-ego, saying, "If people really believe me as that character, I have done my job. I don't look on it as a negative thing. I take it as a compliment."
