Matt LeBlanc may have hit on Emilia Clarke during The Emmys last night, and it didn’t go over as well as Joey Tribbiani asking, “How you doin’?”
While the 49-year-old actor and 29-year-old actress were trading compliments over separate interviews with Jason Kennedy and Giuliana Rancic, LeBlanc was asked if he was a fan of Game of Thrones.
“Yeah, I saw the first season, and I kind of fell out of touch with it,” he said. “I guess that’s when [Clarke] started getting naked, so I need to catch up.”
Needless to say, it was little awkward, and some viewers took to Twitter to comment on the exchange.
Still, came to LeBlanc’s defense, pointing to an interview on The Graham Norton Show from May in which Clarke gushed over how much she loves LeBlanc.
