London: Hollywood actor Matt LeBlanc battled with frustration while shooting his 'Friends' spin-off 'Joey' because he felt his lovable character was emasculated in the show. The 44-year-old starred in 'Joey' after hit TV sitcom 'Friends' but the show failed to win over viewers and critics and was cancelled after just two seasons, reported Daily Star.
"I would do that again; I thought that it was a good show. I just think that we were telling stories that emasculated the character. They wrote a guy who became very doubtful of himself in this new place, in Hollywood, no friends, can't meet girls - and that's not who Joey was.
"He was always, always, always, the consummate optimist. Always. And that's not who they wrote. That was very frustrating for me," LeBlanc said. But the actor insists he has no regrets about joining 'Joey'.
