It’s Matt LeBlanc’s 52nd birthday today! On this auspicious occasion, we’re taking a look at one of his best characters ever, Joey and what makes him the perfect bro.

Matthew Steven LeBlanc or Matt LeBlanc has worked in over 16 films and 19 shows throughout his career so far. However, his most famous and loved character is none other than that of Joey’s from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Matt made us fall in love with the character, his imperfections, flaws but most of all his big, innocent heart! He may have been a true playa and may not believe in sharing food but his friends could always count on him to be their true ‘Bro’!

Urban dictionary defines ‘Bro’ as: “The teller of cool stories; the coolest storyteller”. But a bro is so much more than that, isn’t he? We believe, Joey is one character who comes the closest to being the perfect bro courtesy of Matt LeBlanc. The actor made Joey earn a place into our hearts and he simply never left!

Here are some Joey Tribbiani gifs which prove he’s the best bro ever:

Isn’t afraid to call you out on your bullshit

He could be a playa

A total playa

He is your biggest cheerleader

Has no qualms about acting childish with you

Win or lose, he’s on your side

Shares your sense of humour

Will never let you do stupid S#!t… Not alone anyway

Will never say it but misses you when you’re away

Will apologise in a heartbeat when he’s wrong

Will give his life for you but ask him to move the couch and…

Honesty is what you expect and that is exactly what you receive

Will always have your back no matter how close or far you are

Here’s wishing Matt LeBlanc a happy birthday and a big thanks for giving us Joey!
