Irish Twitter ran wild with the LeBlanc image over the weekend, following the release of the HBO Max reunion special Thursday, comparing the 53-year-old actor to everyone's favorite Irish uncle.
"Every Irish family has at least one of those uncles or great uncles – extreme salt of the Earth characters, full of dry wit and just a drop of cynicism," Twitter user @noclarity74 wrote, explaining the social media discourse over LeBlanc's pose. "Matt looks like a typical Irish uncle in the photos from the reunion from his (folded) , to his facial expressions."
Twitter was filled with screenshots of LeBlanc's pose, accompanied with captions of what his Irish alter ego would be saying at a family gathering or at the pub.
"And you paid for them jeans like that ya did, with all them holes already in them?" wrote Twitter user @spochadoir.
Irish actress and "Bridgerton" star Nicola Coughlan joined in on the fun Saturday, tweeting that Leblanc's Irish alter ego is from a small town on the Emerald Isle.
"Matt LeBlanc is Irish, I don’t want to see any other nation trying to claim him," Coughlan claimed. "He’s from Tullamore, he drinks milk with his dinner."
