All the Sexual Orientation Claims about Matthew McConaughey and His Friend Lance Armstrong
Matthew McConaughey and Lance Armstrong were good friends at the time and could be seen jogging and partying in Austin, Texas. Both faced rumors about their sexual orientation.
The history of doping by Armstrong shocked the United States and led to numerous criticisms of the cyclist. McConaughey is not different from the rest of the world, and he did not react well when the news broke.
Despite being surprised when the scandal involving his friend (who admitted having used doping substances during his sports career, and whose confession caused him to withdraw all the titles he won from 1999 to 2005), McConaughey insisted that Armstrong was not a liar.

Happy Thanksgiving y’all!! Fun hammering it out and sūffering a little (ok, maybe a lot) at the Turkey Trot 5 miler. So many things to be truly thankful for these days. Great family, friends, and our collective good health. Have a great one! All 📷’s courtesy of @lizkreutz
Both were single at the same time; the cyclist broke up with Sheryl Crow and the actor with Penelope Cruz. Apart from that, they were photographed several times together, so people and media outlets started creating speculations about the "bromance" that could be between them.
However, during an interview, McConaughey exclaimed: "We tried it. Was not for us," laughing, and said that for him and his friend, those rumors mean only a joke.
Now McConaughey is a family man. He and Camila Alves, a Brazilian model and fashion designer, have been married since 2012.
Although people might think that their friendship was affected by Armstrong's revelation, they showed that their bond is as strong as ever by attending a game of golf in Texas, which came in a peculiar boat.
At the moment, Armstrong is sanctioned by life, although it competes in triathlons for fans. Also, he continues to be linked to cycling through his podcast, in which he usually conducts race analysis as well as numerous interviews with various personalities.
McConaughey, on the other hand, has been very focused on his career. For 2019, he is expected to appear in at least two films: "Serenity" and "The Beach Bum."
