Matthew McConaughey caused reactions from a large number of fans after he spoke about the potential possibility that Woody Harrelson could be his real brother. Many received such information with skepticism and laughter, but it seems that there could be some truth in this.
Harrelson revealed how the whole story started. During a conversation in Greece, Matthew's mother surprised everyone. “Well, I’ll just say there is some veracity to that thought because we talked to Ma’ Mac, Matthew’s legitimate mother, and she let us know one time…I mean, this is crazy,” Harrelson said.
“We were in Greece watching the U.S. team win the World Cup and I don’t know, I mentioned something about regrets. And I said, ‘You know, it’s odd that my father has no regrets.’ And I have known Ma’ Mac a long time, and she goes, ‘I knew… your father.’ And it was the ellipses I found a little troubling, or interesting.
‘I knew your father.' ”- he said in The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, as quoted by variety.com
Woody Harrelson and DNK: Fans are shocked
Woody deepened everyone's doubts with the next sentence: “The year of [Matthew’s] birth, nine months before, she was on a sabbatical from her relationship with his supposed father, Jim,”- Harrelson said.
There were a lot of laughs in the audience when Harrelson revealed that he wanted to take a DNA test together with Matthew. Whether this will happen in the near future is the question that remains to be answered. Matthew, for now, does not think that option is a good one for him.
“We want to go for a [DNA] test, but for him, it’s a much more big deal,” Harrelson said. “I mean he feels like he is losing a father. But I’m like, no, you’re gaining a different father and a brother”.
