(CNN) — Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s “bromance” is well-known, with their chemistry memorably translating to the screen in the first season of the critically acclaimed “True Detective” series.
Now, McConaughey has suggested that he and Harrelson might be brothers in an interview on the “Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa” podcast.
“You know, where I start and where he ends and where he starts and I end, it’s always like a blurred line,” McConaughey said earlier this week.
“That’s part of our love, isn’t it? My kids call him Uncle Woody. Their kids call me Uncle Matthew, etc. And you look at our pictures and my family thinks a lot of his pictures are mine. A lot of my photos are his.”
“A few years ago in Greece, we were sitting and talking about how close we and our families are,” McConaughey said. “And my mom’s there, and she’s like, ‘Udi, I met your dad’. Everyone knew about the ellipse my mom left ‘after I met’. It was intentional.”
“Then we broke down what this ‘meeting’ meant, did some math, and found that (Harrelson’s) father was on leave, while my mom and dad were going through their second divorce. There are potential receipts and locations in West Texas where a “known” meeting, encounter or moment may have occurred. .
McConaughey added that the couple is “on the brink” of having DNA tests to confirm their suspicions, but that he is more reluctant than Harrelson, “after 53 years of believing” that his father is not his biological father. “.
The two appeared in the Apple TV+ comedy series “Brother From Another Mother”, a fictionalized portrayal of their own friendship.
The two actors first met while working on the Ron Howard film “EDtv” in 1997, though they disagreed on the precise timing.

She recalled meeting Harrelson for the first time in a San Francisco outfit fitted for “EDTV”, Harrelson “walked the streets wearing bicycle shorts, a pro cycling jersey and still wearing his pro cycling shoes”. San Francisco.”
Since then, McConaughey and Harrelson have starred together in the series “Surfer, Dude” and “True Detective.”
