In a doozy from the struggling-actors file, the “Friends” star told host Conan O’Brien that when he went to have his first headshots done, the photographer advised him to even out his teeth first.
The 51-year-old LeBlanc, who said he had $11 to his name before he was cast as Joey Tribbiani on the iconic sitcom, found a dentist to do the work, only to be told that it would cost $80. That was a nonstarter.

The rest is DIY dental work history.
