Matt LeBlanc Rant: ‘I’m Not F**king Joey!’ (VIDEO)

September 23, 2010

Matt LeBlanc’s rant at a London Fashion Week party is catching people off guard this week. Find out what the former Friends star supposedly said to a tabloid reporter here, and see related photos and video.

Ah, Friends..the good ‘ole days. I’ll never forget the one where Joey and Rachel are out on a boat, and Joey complains “…who names their boat ‘Coast Guard’ anyway?” To which Rachael replies: “That IS the Coast Guard, Joey.” He shakes his head and says, “Well, what are they doing out here, the coast is way over there!”

The hilariously oblivious character that Matt LeBlanc portrayed in the series has apparently been hard for the actor to shake. According to a reporter with the Daily Mirror in England, he was less than friendly at a fashion week party thrown by Hed Kandi.

They say he bumped into their table, sending drinks flying. When the reporter chimed in with ‘You all right, Joey? How YOU do-in?’ he apparently flipped.

Here’s how the Matt LeBlanc rant supposedly went:

“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.”

The reporter then cracked another ‘Joey’ joke, which earned another response from LeBlanc:

“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.”

To me it sounds like the guy from the Mirror was being a real douche. Let’s face it, tabloid reporters don’t tend to have great relationships with celebs—and it sounds like this one is no exception.

What do you think, was he out of line?
