(CNN) Woody Harrelson He confirmed Matthew McConaughey They claim they might be brothers, saying “there’s some truth to that thought,” during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
“We want to go and[do a DNA test]but for him, it’s a much bigger deal,” he said. Harrelson He said. “I mean, it feels like he’s losing a father. But I’m like, no, you’re gaining a different father and brother.”
Like McConaughey, Harrelson recalled a conversation with “Ma Mack, Matthew’s legitimate mother” when she told them she “knew…” Harrelson’s father.
“It’s crazy,” Harrelson said. “We were in Greece watching the USA win the World Cup and I said something about regret.” And I said, ‘You know, it’s strange that my father has no regrets.’ And Ma had known Mac for a long time, and she said, ‘I knew… your father.’ And the ellipses were a little unsettling or interesting.”
Harrelson added that her pose was “full of innuendo”. Colbert quipped that it may have been a “pregnancy pause”.
Last week, McConaughey said on the “Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa” podcast that Harrelson’s father was on vacation at the same time his parents were going through their second divorce and that his mother and Harrelson’s father could have met in West Texas.

Harrelson is also set to appear in the HBO series “The White House Plumbers” alongside Justin Theroux, who said Entertainment tonight He wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out that McConaughey and Harrelson were half-brothers. (CNN and HBO share parent company Warner Bros. Discovery.)
“I can’t say if it’s just, like, their kind of sluggishness in South and Texas, or I think there’s Texas numbers in there somewhere,” Theroux said. “It’s just a mindset. They’re both wonderfully relaxed the whole time.”
