Matt LeBlanc: Friends was the best

Matt LeBlanc says his work on Friends was the “best job ever”.

The actor shot to stardom playing Joey Tribbiani for ten years on the sitcom. He admits he could have continued starring in the show well after it ended in 2004.

"It was the best job ever,” he told Radio Times.

“I was not one of the ones who voted to end it. I liked it, it was fun, it was easy. I worked about 20 hours a week, and made a lot of money. What’s wrong with that?”

After the show’s finale, Matt went on to play his character in the spin-off series Joey. The show was pulled by NBC in 2006 when it failed to pull big ratings.

Friends, on the other hand, was a global success until it wrapped.

Matt and his co-stars were earning $1 million per episode and their high wages made headlines all over the world.

“I remember seeing my salary on the cover of the Los Angeles Times Calendar section. ‘Are They Worth It?’ was the headline,” he said.

“I thought, ‘Wow, everybody knows exactly what I make’. It didn’t really matter but it was weird.”
