Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong has at least one person in his corner: actor Matthew McConaughey.

McConaughey and Armstrong have been friends for years, and the actor came to Armstrong's defense in the newest issue of Details magazine. He said that despite Armstrong's years of denial over taking performance-enhancing drugs, the cyclist is not a liar.

"He told a lie, he's not a liar," McConaughey said. "When it came out, I took it personally, but then I realized it ain't personal to him....

"I was going, 'That jerk!' but then I thought, 'Well, what was he supposed to do? Call me to the side and go, 'Hey, I did this'? But I'm happy for him now, because despite all this outside conflict, he doesn't have this inner conflict anymore."
