Zitat des Tages von Matt LeBlanc:
I believe that laughter is the best emotional Band-Aid in the world. It's like nature's Neosporin.
The majority of my background is multi-camera format, which is very broad and a very arch perception of reality. Whereas single camera tends to be more truthful and a little more intimate of a medium.
I've grown tremendously as an actor by being there. It is comic writing the likes of which I don't know that I'll ever see again and it's been a great, great experience.
I keep waiting for the roof to cave in. I was raised to follow the Golden Rule, you know, treat people the way you wish to be treated. That's kind of the way I live my life. Maybe someone up there likes me for that.
You know, I think British comedy is very smart comedy. You don't get too much dumb comedy over here. Or at least I haven't seen it. If I'm wrong about that, I apologize to all the dumb comedy makers over here.
I'm much more low-key than the characters I've played.
It's funny - nowadays people that are famous get chased by paparazzi. They have this fame, but they don't have the money to hide from it.
'Friends' was a true ensemble. There really was no star of the show.
This whole acting thing was always just for me and was always an absolute shot in the dark. If it didn't pan out, I had my hammer and tool belt, banging nails again tomorrow if I had to.
In comedy, you have to be unafraid to hang from the tree branch naked in the high wind and you have to be absolutely unafraid to look ridiculous and silly.
I don't like producing. It's a lot of meetings you sit through that amount to nothing.
I really like the half-hour comedy. I really do. I know people that are in movies all the time and they, you know, they don't see their families as much. And that takes its toll over time.
As an actor, the biggest compliment you can get, in my book is for someone to believe that you're the character.
Why do you have to break up with her? Be a man. Just stop calling.
When I was younger and studying acting, I never ever saw myself in the sitcom world; it was drama that really turned me on and still does.
The more cynical you become, the better off you'll be.
I find the earth to be a place of misery in which I am surrounded by the conformity that kills society.
I don't like silk underwear. They don't do the job, you know?
You basically have a group of four spies who are chosen for a mission they feel for the fact of how competent they are and how their expertise and they're the right one for the job. But ultimately they find out they've been actually chosen for their incompetence.
I am not bisexual. I am not gay. I have never had sex with men.
You always question people's intentions. That may be a combination of having money, having fame, and being a little older.
I'm not in a rush to do anything. And I wouldn't say I pick and choose. When it comes to producers picking people for roles I don't think it's between me and Tom Cruise, do you know what I mean?
The phone's not ringing off the hook, but that's ok by me. I feel very fortunate, work to me has become a kind of hobby.
Comedy is just to me, maybe it's a natural knack, if I can see where the joke is in the writing and I can see where the setup is and I can tell this is the way to make it.
I am not afraid if people think Matt LeBlanc in 'Episodes' is who I am - my friends and family know who I am.
And if you have great writing, it's really easy, but if it's not so great and you have to work a little harder, I could tell where the work needed to be done but comedy is just fun.
When there's writing that you really trust, it's very freeing as an artist.
People will speak slowly to me sometimes. And they always ask me if I'm all right, because I'm much more low-key and reserved than my character in 'Friends'.
