MATTHEW McConaughey isn’t happy with BFF Lance Armstrong.
The actor has revealed he was very surprised to learn that about the disgraced cyclist — who was recently found to have been engaged in a huge doping scandal and stripped of all the titles he won from 1999 to 2005 — but now feels sorry for his friend and is relieved he never confided in him.
“My first reaction was I was p***ed off. I was mad,” he said. “I then got kind of sad for him. First off, I had a part of me that took it kind of personally, which I think a lot of people have.
`”For him, it was impersonal because he was living a lie. It was a whole unanimous facade he had to carry around.
“What I realized is that those of us that took that personally, like, ‘Oh, he lied to me,’ it’s not true. What I mean by this is, 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 p***ed off at him, going, ‘You want me to walk around holding this?’”
