Matthew McConaughey says he was initially angry with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong after it was revealed he had taken performance-enhancing drugs throughout his career, but adds that he believes his longtime friend will be able to "deal" with the backlash and will be remembered more for "what he did for cancer."
Armstrong's involvement in a widespread program involving steroids, blood transfusions and human growth hormone was revealed in a report the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) published in October. He was then stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and an Olympic Bronze Medal.
