Matt Le Blanc : Biography
on July 25, 1967 in Newton, Massachusetts, Matt LeBlanc was not at all
interested in acting. He followed his passion for motorcycles. At age
eight, he received his first motorcycle. After participating in numerous
amateur competitions, he began to think that motorcycling just might be
his career. But his mom worried for her son - just as many others would,
and the dream of motorcycling was abruptly stopped. Matt began to train
in a career of carpentry and hoped to integrate it with many artistic
components. During the past 10 years he has developed a passion for landscape
photography, which has taken him to such locations as Amsterdam, Switzerland,
Germany, Vancouver and various places in the United States. LeBlanc lives
with his dog, Lady, who was one of the first friends he made when he moved
to Los Angeles. His birthday is July 25.
