MATT LEBLANC, who starred as Joey Tribbiani in the NBC series Friends, revealed that he watches the popular show with his 12-year-old daughter, and admitted she wasn’t impressed with all the scenes.
The 50-year-old played his on-screen alter-ego from 1994 to 2004, where he and his group of friends got up to a series of antics in the comedy, and now his daughter has given him her opinion on his scenes.
He said: “It’s still on all the time, so we’ll stop and watch it if we’re channel surfing and it pops up.
“She loves to ask me questions about it. She’ll say: ‘Was that real? Did you really eat that? What did that taste like? Ooh, you ate that off the floor? That’s gross! You’re so funny, Dad.’”
The actor also claimed that his daughter used to call it the “The Joey Tribbiani Show” before calling it by its actual name.
He added: “It’s fun to sit and watch it with her. She used to call it The Joey Tribbiani Show – but now she knows to call it Friends.”
Despite the pair catching up with the popular show, Matt said he and his TV companion don’t always have the “same taste” in shows.
He told the Radio Times: “She’s 12-years-old, so we don’t have the same taste in shows – I want to catch up on the news in the mornings, while she wants to watch My Little Pony.”
Despite being best known for his role in the hit comedy series, the Top Gear star admitted that he prefers to watch “documentaries” and shows about “extraterrestrial life”.
He said: “I don’t watch any shows religiously. I tend to watch television that you can jump in and out of quickly.
