The actors, who have maintained a close friendship for years, declared that there is a possibility that they are relatives.
The actor Woody Harrelson warned that he could be the brother of his professional partner Matthew McConaughey, who had already talked about this possibility.
During his appearance on Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show” on Wednesday night, Harrelson endorsed what McCounaghey recounted in an interview on the “Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa” podcast on April 14.
Although he did it in jest, the 61-year-old artist from Midland, Texas, made it clear that “there is some truth” in what McConaughey said.
And he explained that once they were both with McConaughey’s mother, she told Harrelson: “I met your father.” And he did it, she added, in a way “full of innuendo”.
According to Harrelson, his partner’s mother had taken a “sabbatical” from her relationship with what until now was thought to be McConaughey’s father, and had relations with his father.
“Nine months before Matthew’s birth, she was on a sabbatical from her relationship with her alleged father, Jim,” he explained.
Harrelson acknowledged that both have thought about taking a DNA test to see if it is true, although he also explained that it is about something much more important to McConaughey.
