Irish actress and Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan joined in on the fun, tweeting that Leblanc’s alter ego is definitely 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.”

Twitter user @spiceslag brought up a childhood memory we might all rather forget: “when your parents forced your 6 year old self to stand up in front of the adults after a family dinner and sing a song you just learned in primary school.”
