In a recently released clip from a pre-recorded episode of "The Kelly Clarkson Show," the 52-year-old actor recalled a strange moment of privacy invasion while he was starring on the NBC sitcom. Matt said:
"...they had a split-screen on the TV, six quadrants. Each was a live shot of each one of our houses, like a helicopter host."
Leblanc commented that the news had no other information than just broadcasting a live Skyview of the homes of the six main casts on "Friends."
The actor went on to describe his reaction to the "weird" moment. Matt laughed heartily as he said that all he could think of as he saw his house was, "I need a new roof." He narrated that he later got a ladder to fix his roof after the helicopter had left.
The special unscripted episode was meant to be filmed in March for a new streaming site, HBO max.
Before his recount, LeBlanc was asked by the host of the show, Kelly Clarkson, about his thoughts on being a part of a sitcom that is still popular and monumental in the lives of people today.
The actor explained that the show is just as "relevant" as it was back then, as social media and streaming have contributed to its reputation as a must-watch for everybody.
