Matt LeBlanc Shockingly Reveals He ‘Acts For Money’
Did you know Matt LeBlanc only had $11 dollars left to his name before he got the role of Joey on Friends?
That’s right. If your bank account's looking a little empty right now, don't worry. You could be earning MILLIONS soon enough (no promises, obvs).
Because as it turns out, Matt LeBlanc only wanted to act so he could get those bills paid, NOT to make it big.
Matt told The Times:
“It's just a job. I just turn up, do it and then I'm off. The pay cheque is probably the most important part.''
Wowza. How refreshingly honest.
The ex-Friends, now Top Gear star, explains that he wasn’t living sensibly before he landed the role of Joey:
“I screwed up. I should have got a real job months and months prior to that because $11 is not going to get you very far. The rent was paid for that month, but the next month? I don't know.
"I always had this attitude that I'd do all right. I never wanted to be the biggest actor in the world, I just wanted to keep the bills paid. And then Friends came along.''
Just a bit lucky, then. That $11 wouldn’t have gone too far.
After Matt finished with his Friends spin-off, Joey, he took six years off from Hollywood:
''I was going through a divorce, I had a new baby, my daughter was diagnosed with some health issues - she's OK now - and it was a rough time. Work wasn't a priority.
"I realised the most important thing in life is your family so I hit the reset button, focused on the things that were really important and got through it.'
He went on to explain:
'All people who work juggle. There's that balance. You want to provide for them, give them a nice life, more than what you think they need so that when you're gone they'll have something if they fuck it all up.''
Matt’s daughter, Marina, sounds like a very lucky girl!
