Matthew McConaughey Angry With Lance Armstrong!

Monday, January 21, 2013

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?’”
