Matt LeBlanc was a bottle brunette

Jennifer Aniston wasn't the only "Friends" star who gave a lot of attention to her tresses - Matt LeBlanc has revealed that he dyed his hair dark all 10 seasons.

At a Television Critics' Panel in Beverly Hills for his upcoming Showtime series "Episodes," the now silver-haired 43-year-old, who played actor Joey Tribbiani on the '90s sitcom, said, "I dyed my hair the whole time on Friends."

Once the hit show went off the air, however, he stopped hitting the bottle. "I just was sick of doing it," LeBlanc said of his decision to stop darkening his do.

After a four-year break from the business, LeBlanc is happy to be back on the small screen in "Episodes," which premieres in January. On the series, LeBlanc plays Matt LeBlanc, an actor cast in an American remake of a British TV show.

"It's a character," he explained. "It's not me. It's the public's perception of me more than [it's] really me."

    they should have had an episode "the one in which joey finds a white hair". 🙂 He definitely looks more mature and should have gone grey earlier to break out of his stereotype of 'joey'.

    Good to know Matt, but I think you would have garnered more attention if you left Christianity like Anne Rice.

      if he announced his departure from christianity would definitely been more a news item.. or announcing that he is a confirmed Lesbian.

      amen – he's look v. v. nice here! Probably wouldn't have worked for Friends, but he could definitely rank up there with George Clooney and Anderson Cooper for hot men sporting silver.
