1 thing Matt LeBlanc still finds interesting about ‘Friends’
Although “Friends” first aired back in 1994, LeBlanc tells “Watch!” magazine he finds it interesting that so many young people still watch the television show. Even after all this time, new generations take time to view the series and they still find it relatable despite the show being a bit dated. “It seems like every year, there’s a new generation that discovers Friends,” LeBlanc said. “It’s been interesting to see how the show still feels relevant to kids. You watch an episode where you pick up the phone and pull the antenna out to make a call. There’s no texting anywhere. There are no current events. We did one topical joke in 10 years—one.”
What Matt LeBlanc regrets
During his “Watch!” magazine interview, LeBlanc says he regrets not enjoying life more and being content when he was younger. However, he says he is much more content at this stage in his life. “I wish I could have been more content when I was younger, but nobody is content when they’re young,” LeBlanc says. “I’m at the point in my career where I’m not looking to further things. I want people to watch the show [Man with a Plan’]. But I’m not looking at it as a steppingstone. I’m not looking to be an A-list movie star. I’m happy where I am. I feel successful. And I feel fulfilled.”
