Matt LeBlanc Is Richer Than You And He Wants You To Know It!

| Filed under: TV News

matt leblanc has returned

Matt LeBlanc is back, and as we mentioned before, his new Showtime series Episodes premiered to a solid 768,000 viewers.

But what has Matt been up to over the past several years since his short-lived Friends spin-off Joey?

Here's what he had to say about it:

"I took four or five years off. There were a lot of things that were spinning out of control. My daughter had been diagnosed with an illness, my marriage was falling apart, the writing was on the wall that the show was going away–that being the least of those three major problems."

"I was extremely stressed, and then it was all kind of poof! — quiet. So I said, 'You know, this is a good time to crawl under a rock."

It happens. Fortunately, it seems like the Friends residuals have treated Matt VERY well. More from LeBlanc:

"Thank God I didn't need the money. You know there's that saying that you make your f*** you money in Hollywood? I made that."

"My daughter's education is paid for. Her grandchildren's education is paid for. My mother's house is paid off. My father's house is paid off. My house is paid off. I come from a blue-collar background, and there's nothing in my upbringing that prepares you for that."

We're glad to hear that you seem to have more money than you'll ever need OK following your career hibernation, Matt. We wish U the best of luck with your new show!

Are U happy to have Matt LeBlanc back?

    Good 4 him, not snorting it away & taking care of his family; don't think he was showing off, just showing that he is well adjusted after so many years

    I enjoyed the first outing of 'Episodes' and I find it refreshing that Matt's been honest about earning that kind of dosh.

    He looks more handsome than ever. A little grey does a lotta good. Very debonair. He might want to get a little hair fill in though.

    He's aging really well, and he's smarter than Joey was.

    Jealous much, hey, Perez?

    And he does NOT repeat NOT say that he is richer than you and I.
    "I come from a blue-collar background, and there's nothing in my upbringing that prepares you for that." That's what he means.

    Re: Bushwack – You COULD care less? So you DO care? I think you mean you COULDN'T care less, you fucking moron.

    Kudos for him putting family and finances first! He took care of his business.
    Nice touch helping out the family too. Suze Orman would say APPROVED!



  15. 15

    Good for him. He's a hottie!!



  16. 16

    Gawd is he FAT ! ! And, he did snort a bit of his money, from what the tabloids had to say ! Sure in hell ain't snort'n it now ! I mean, he is as BIG AS A HOUSE !



  17. 17

    ….He has more chins than A Chinese telephone book !



  18. 18

    Good for him! He was good to his family, paid attention to his own business and has done well. It is refreshing to see such honesty in Hollywood - very rare these days. I would bet that he has "real friends" also, not just those in the business. This was a tacky title - is someone jealous?? Just saying!



  19. 19

    Good for him. He was always the only one I cared about fter Friends folded.



  20. 20

    Wow. He's now, officially, one of my favorite actors.



  21. 21

    i`ve always loved the guy. the interview above just made me respect him even more. he is smart and loves his family just a good guy.



  22. 22

    so youd rather see diddy with his millions of flash cars and jewellery than hear that matt leblanc can pay off his parents mortgage?



  23. 23

    If he gets naked on his new show, its all good. I've always thought he was hot! Still is!
