Friends star Matt LeBlanc, 55, looks unrecognisable with grey stubble & casual outfit during rare outing in LA | The Sun

MATT LeBlanc looked unrecognizable with gray stubble and a casual outfit during a rare outing in Los Angeles.

The 55-year-old actor looked worlds away from his Friends days as he went shopping in Encino on Monday.

Matt – who shot to fame playing ladies man Joey Tribbiani in the iconic US sitcom – wore a gray T-shirt with the Ford logo on it and blue jeans.

The Episodes actor looked downcast as he lugged a Ralphs shopping bag to his car.

Matt has been keeping a low profile since splitting from his TV producer girlfriend Aurora Mulligan.

The Sun revealed in February that he has parted ways with his British girlfriend, 36, after nearly six years together.

A source said the former Top Gear host and Aurora — who worked on the motoring show — had “struck a clean break, but it’s still very raw”.

The couple was first linked after Matt became the BBC show’s first non-UK host 2016.

The Sun revealed they were dating that May and they were seen at the Hickstead Derby in West Sussex, England, in June.

Onlookers said they looked “besotted”.

In 2017, they made their red carpet debut at a New York film festival and in 2018 attended the UK launch of Top Gear’s 25th series as a couple.

Father-of-one Matt called her “honey” on social media while Aurora, who is from Northern Ireland, joked he was an “old geezer”.

They kept a low profile in LA where Matt, who once dated actress Andrea Anders, moved in 2019.


A source said: “Matt and Aurora’s relationship has run its course. It’s all over.

“It’s a huge shame and Matt has taken the news particularly hard, as anyone would.

“He and Aurora fell for each on Top Gear and although there was a pretty big age gap they were a really great match.

“But when he announced he was leaving Top Gear and took on other work, it was hard for them. He’s mainly based out of LA and was traveling a lot while Aurora was working in the UK.”

Matt has had a string of failed relationships in the past.


The actor married model Melissa McKnight in Hawaii in 2003 and they welcomed their daughter Marina, now 18, the following year.

The couple faced every parent's worst nightmare when Marina was diagnosed with a rare brain disorder called cortical dysplasia at eight months old. Luckily, with treatment, she made a full recovery. 

But the couple's marriage didn’t fare as well, allegedly due to Matt’s womanising ways. 

Matt later admitted an encounter with Canadian lapdancer Stephanie Stephens in 2005 was partly what led to the end of his three-year marriage.

Matt told the National Enquirer that a strip club was “not where a family man should be”, but went on to claim the dancer was partially to blame.

“She was in my face, pushing her breasts into me and grabbing my hands to go all over her body,” he said.

“She was telling me to caress her, and in my head I’m thinking, ‘What’s going on?’”
