Matthew McConaughey considered himself a good friend of Lance Armstrong's, living in the same city and working out together for years.
Now, he's not so sure.
On one hand, he can understand why he wasn't told — 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.
Here's what he said:
"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 situation.
We mean, we're having a hard time and we're not even Lance's close friend! We can't imagine what it's like for those who actually know him — and have been lied to right in front of their faces.
Matthew: you can come work out with us now! LOLz!
