Friends continues to be there for you, even though the beloved show has been off the air since 2004. The comedy series is still so popular today that an unscripted reunion special is even in the works. With the show being so big all these years later, you can only imagine that the actors who played the six main characters have experienced the effects of its popularity—both positively and negatively. As reported by Digital Spy, Matt LeBlanc, of Joey Tribbiani fame, spoke during a pre-recorded interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show about one time he saw his house live on television... while he was inside of it.
When asked if he was even able to leave the house back when Friends was airing, LeBlanc admitted some "weird things" did go down. Of course, Clarkson urged him to explain.
"I remember one time, it was during the week, I had been flipping channels and watching the news and for some reason, they had a split-screen on the TV, six quadrants," LeBlanc recalls in the video below. "Each was a live shot of each one of our houses, like a helicopter shot....I was watching it and there was no information or news, it was just showing houses."
Even though the actor found the situation bizarre, there was a very practical silver lining. "I remember looking closely at my house and thinking, 'F**k I need a new roof.' So the helicopter flies away and I get the ladder and I go up there," LeBlanc hilariously adds.
