Television viewers who haven’t seen Matt LeBlanc in awhile are bit surprised to see that the actor has salt-and-pepper hair on Showtime’s Episodes. It turns out that this isn’t a new development for the actor. He started going prematurely gray while still in his 20’s, when he was shooting Friends.
In a recent interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, LeBlanc reminisced and said, “Dyeing it on the show would take like an hour and a half… and you gotta listen to everybody’s yakking and talking in the makeup room.” He eventually took the matter into his own hands and used Just for Men at home. He joked that it “takes five minutes, but then about a half-hour of paint-thinner to get the black off your ears.”
Here’s the complete interview…
What do you think? Should LeBlanc have just let Joey Tribbiani go prematurely gray and skip the dying?
