Matthew McConaughey considered himself a good pal of Lance Armstrong‘s, living in the same city and working out together for years…so Armstrong’s doping controversy must have been a tough pill to swallow for the Magic Mike actor!
On one hand, McConaughey can understand why Lance didn’t privately fess up to him…but on the other, it still doesn’t excuse the lies. He was shocked when he heard Lance’s confession… and anger eventually turned to sadness.
“What was he supposed to do? Call me to the side and go, ‘Hey man, I did it but don’t tell anybody.’ Then I would have really had a reason to be pissed off at him, going, ‘You want me to walk around holding this?’”
What a hard place to be in as a personal friend of the biker. We’re upset because of all this…being a friend must be downright devastating!
