On the episode, Brooke played an obsessed fan of Matt LeBlanc’s character Joey, and apparently, Andre didn’t approve of her scenes.
“In the scene, I’m supposed to lick Joey’s fingers, because they’re the hands of a genius, and I want to devour them, and I’m a nut,” Brooke told the New Yorker.
While Matt tried to be considerate of Brooke while filming, it all didn’t sit well with Andre, who ended up storming off set.
“Andre was in the audience supporting me, and he stormed out,” Brooke said. “He said, ‘Everybody’s making fun of me. You made a fool of me by that behavior.'”
She continued, “I’m, like, ‘It’s comedy! What is the matter with you?'”
Brooke says that Andre even went home and “smashed all his trophies.”
“I learned later that he was addicted to crystal meth at that point, so that irrational behavior I’m sure had something to do with that,” Brooke said.
Looking back, Brooke says that Andre’s behavior completely stole the moment away from her.
“It was petulant behavior,” she said. “It co-opted it for me emotionally, because all of a sudden then my focus went to him.”
Despite Andre’s bad behavior, Brooke still shined in her role — and it ended up getting her an offer for her own TV show.
