Matt LeBlanc: "I'm Not Joey!"

| Filed under: TV NewsAnglophiliaSarah Michelle Gellar


Matt LeBlanc went totally belligerent at Hed Kandi's London Fashion Week Party at Maddox.

The good folks at Mirror ran into him, and he was not very nice to them because he was hammered.

Here's what he said when they called him Joey:

"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."

They wouldn't stop calling him Joey. He yelled in response:

"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."

Here's what he said when they asked him what his plans were:

"I'm gonna do comedy. Working with the Friends producers to do comedy in England. And it's got nothing to do with Joey before you ask."

You really need to accept the fact that people know you AND love you…as Joey.

You are still Joey. Melissa Joan Hart is still Clarissa Sabrina The Teenage Witch. Michael Richards is still a racist Kramer. Sarah Michelle Gellar is still irrelevant Buffy.

Deal with it. Becoming an angry, London drunk isn't going to make people remember you ANY LESS as Joey.

Do U think LeBlanc will be remembered by anything other than Joey?

    Probably not but its just good manners to call people by their real name.

  2. 2

    and you're some gay, hypocritical celebrity wanna be

    Then Matt should give back all the money and residuals that he earned playing "Joey" … oh wait he'll be flat broke … gimmie a break!

  5. 5

    As Joey would say "it's London, I figured it didn't count!"

  6. 6

    hey matt- if it weren't for "joey" you'd be "nobody". and don't think for a second that people like "Matt LeBlanc" they love Joey, a fictional character.
    same thing for Julia Louis Dreyfous, who is so desperate to remain relevant that its sad. we dont like you julia, we liked Elaine!

  7. 7

    Ugh I hate when actors freak out when fans call them by their show name. Like seriously stfu. That's how people know you. That's how you made your money.

  8. 8

    OH Perez you really gone and done it this time.







    Shut your acne-sprouting, Gaga-sucking, gargantuan motherfucking face.

  9. 9

    He's lucky that people still care to recognize him as Joey. He won't gain any fans from this behavior :-X what a jerk!

  10. 10

    Good thing he didn't ask him ”how you doing” after that !

  11. 11

    Oh poor Matt LeBlanc. I wonder if he is angry because he is not aging as well as the girls from Friends. HMM, but I will always love Joey. I would still probably refer to him as Matt. Do people try to piss off celebrities or something? I don't think I would do that, but he did make a lot of money on that character. Oh well, I am sure I will never run into him.

    "Do U think LeBlanc will be remembered by anything other than Joey?"

    Yes. That OTHER show he did; you know the one, "Joey." ….. ooooooh waiiitttt ….

    He's right. One thing is to remember him as Joey, another is not to respect the fact that he is a real person. He didn't say that he regrets doing Friends, he just said that's in the past and he's trying to move on.
    Go Matt!

  14. 14

    He will always be Joey.
    I dont know why he gets so upset, why are all the small celebrities or actors so full of themselves.

  15. 15

    a jack-ass

    Matt's a good guy, aside from his past, he seems to be a really nice well mannered man, I read the original article from " The good folks at the Mirro " pfffffft!

    They kept on calling him Joey over and over again even after he had asked them not to!

    Matt is a man and not a character!

    He said recently in an interview that he doesn't mind "FANS" calling him Joey , the Mirror however aren't fans! They were hassling Matt and essentially bullying him calling him a nickname that he didn't want!

    He appreciates his "FANS" you can understand if he was a bit crude (he may also have a had drink since it was a PARTY!") he played the character for 12 years and then all of a sudden it was gone, his Fame, his Family, leave the guy ALONE! I support Matt 100% and I'm looking forward to EPISODES and I really hope he gets back on top soon.

    Besides EPISODES references Joey and Friends so many times!


    We're supposed to take the writers word for this? How would they remember EVERY EXACT THING MATT SAID?


  17. 17

    Joey needs to calm down.

  18. 18

    Shut up, you made millions being JOEY, people fell in love with JOEY. Suck it up big boy and stop crying like a baby.

  19. 19

    I think he conducted him ok considered and IF he was "hammered" - Leave him the fuck alone if you don't think he is going to make it in anything else - fucking tabloids never give anyone a break - btw will we remember you (if at all) in 10 years as Mario of Perez????

  20. 20

    meh don't buy it, that sounds totally made up, even if he was drunk and this is coming from someone who didnt watch a single episode of freinds (because it sucked)

  21. 21

    no doubt he hates to be called joey, because that confirms to the big wigs in hollywood that people only see him that way. they won't hire him for that reason. however, he has mad money and if he never works again, he should thank the powers to be that he was on friends

  22. 22

    Every time I see Matt LeBlanc in an interview, he's the polar opposite of Joey. He's probably sick of people assuming he's stupid, like Joey.
