LeBlanc 'not great' at picking movies

Matt Le Blanc makes bad movie choices.

The former 'Friends' star rose to fame as dim-witted Joey Tribbiani in the long-running TV show but admitted he hasn't always been as successful with his film choices.

He told Culture Magazine: "I'm not great at picking movies. 'Charlie's Angels' was great, but it wasn't my movie – I was only in a couple of scenes.

"I did 'All The Queen's Men', which was just a fight the whole time. The director is a really nice guy, we just didn't see eye to eye creatively."

However, the actor, who won a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his part in sitcom 'Episodes' in which he plays a fictional version of himself, is in no rush to try different parts.

He said: "I don’t really have that big drive to explore the limits of my craft. It's just a job to me. My favourite thing to do is to not work.

"'Episodes' is a steady gig. I'm good at it, I know how to do it, I trust all the people. I do my thing, go home and live my life."
