What the hell happened with Matt LeBlanc on the 2016 Emmys red carpet?

It’s no secret that red carpet interviews can be a disaster, which is exactly what happened at the 2016 Emmys with Matt LeBlanc.

While chatting with E! during their red carpet show, LeBlanc definitely got noticed for not only wearing sunglasses (because it’s so bright in front of the cameras?) but looking like he was so super excited to be there. Yes, that was sarcasm. Maybe he just wasn’t feeling the interview or was just being shy, but he really didn’t seem interested at all.

Things became even more uncomfortable when the former Friends star was chatting with Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke (remember when she freaked out about meeting him?). Not only could he not hear her talking — LeBlanc was talking with Jason Kennedy while Clarke was at a different location talking with Giuliana Rancic — but then he brought up Clarke being naked on GoT.

Yeah, he said that, because the only reason to watch the HBO hit series is to see her naked. I mean, it’s not like she’s a talented actress who’s doing some amazing storytelling with her character or anything. He seemed to be joking, but still, it made for one awkward, creepy moment.

LeBlanc is also catching the eyes of people on Twitter, and not in a good way. Here’s what a handful had to say about his interview with E!

Yeah, this moment may be even more uncomfortable than all those times Joey Tribbiani was really uncomfortable.
