Matt LeBlanc is a "little more together" than his on-screen persona.
The 46-year-old actor plays a fictional version of himself in Episodes, but admits he is noting like his character in real life.
"It's a fictitious character, and you just have to approach it that way. He just happens to have the same name I do. When we were coming up with who the character was going to be, I thought it would be fun - since our salaries were all published during Friends - to make this Matt LeBlanc way, way wealthier than me. You've got this guy completely oblivious to the consequences of his actions; that's fun to play. And he's really damaged, this lost soul, the Matt LeBlanc on TV," the Friends star said. But he added, "I like to think I have my s**t a little more together than that."
Matt, who has a 10-year-old daughter Marina with his ex-wife Mellissa McKnight, is glad he has regained some anonymity since Friends came to an end in 2004: "The weirdest thing was walking into a room, a restaurant, a bar, a movie theater, anywhere there's a lot of people, and everybody sort of stopping what they're doing and taking notice you're in the room. And they know you, or they think they do - they know your name, they know what you do for a living, they know how much money you make, they know where you're from, but they're all strangers to you."
"[Adam Brody] affectionately refers to our sex scenes as our threesomes."

Kristen Bell's co-star found it a "little awkward" shooting sexy scenes with the pregnant actress.
Adam Brody, who guest stars in House of Lies alongside the blonde beauty, has revealed he initially found it strange filming steamy scenes for the dramatic comedy while she is expecting her first child but that she helped him to feel more comfortable.
The 33-year-old actor, who is dating former Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, told EOnline.com, "She was very pregnant. I like to say it was sort of a three-person scene. If it wasn't Kristen, it would have been incredibly awkward. Well, it was still a little awkward, but she's just such a warm and open friendly person."
The former Veronica Mars actress is expecting her first child with fiance Dax Shepard and while she can't wait to become a mom, Kristen recently admitted she is also a little nervous.
Anna Friel is returning to television. The 36-year-old actress is set to take on a co-starring role opposite Friday Night Lights actor Kyle Chandler in Showtime's drama The Vatican, according to Deadline.
The show has been described as "a provocative contemporary genre thriller about spirituality, power and politics set against the modern-day political machinations within the Catholic church."
Anne will play Kayla Duffy, the younger sister of Kyle's character Cardinal Thomas Duffy. Matthew Goode will play Papal Secretary Bernd Koch while Sebastian Koch is set to star as Cardinal Marco Malerba. Production is set to begin in Rome next month.
Anna recently revealed she relies on "vampire facials" to retain her youthful looks: "I'm still smoking but I've cut that down to three or four a day. My brother's a doctor and he's created a smoothie that's good for the skin. And I have this thing called a vampire facelift - they take a phial of blood out of your arm, separate the plasma and inject it in your face. It helps the skin repair itself."
Ben Affleck hates the TV series Homeland.
The Argo actor and director - who is tipped for Oscar glory next year - has revealed he can't bare to watch the hugely popular series starring Emmy-award winner Claire Danes because he was originally supposed to direct it but was forced to turn down the opportunity.
The 40-year-old actor revealed he was asked to direct the pilot of the hit Showtime series but he turned the project down to spend quality time with his young family as his wife Jennifer Garner was shooting a movie and they have an agreement that they won't work at the same time.
"I was sure nothing would happen with the show. Now I hate the [f**king] show. I've never seen it," he said. The father-of-three said he doesn't plan on making the same mistake twice and will jump at the opportunity to direct the right TV show in the future. "I'm going to attach myself to 14 pilots this year," he joked.
Homeland recently enjoyed a series high of 2.07 million viewers last Sunday night.
Showtime released the trailer for Dexter's upcoming season seven, which undeniably left fans meticulously analyzing its frames.
With all eyes on the brother-sister/lieutenant-criminal relationship between Michael C. Hall's Dexter and Jennifer Carpenter's Deb, little room was left for the rest of the characters, leaving Quinn (Desmond Harrington) and Batista (David Zayas) completely out of the trailer and the new possible baddie, Louis Greene (Josh Cooke), with a mere couple shots.
