Lance and Matt Just “Buds”

Senator Larry Craig’s not the only way denying a little butt action. It seems cyclist Lance Armstrong and actor (?) Matthew Matthew McConaughey have had enough of people thinking they’re in gay love.

The New York Daily News reports:

Speculation that the Tour de France champ and the actor might be more than friends started last summer, when they were photographed together (with shirts on and off) shortly after McConaughey split with Penelope Cruz and Armstrong broke up with Sheryl Crow.

Asked in November’s Details about the gay rumors, McConaughey deadpans: “We tried it. Wasn’t for us.”

Armstrong obviously finds the gossip less amusing. “We all have buds, we all take guy trips, but you take something very normal and put it in a magazine and people start talking,” he says. “It’s like, either you sleep with everything that moves or you’re gay.”

Oh, please! “Buds”? If that’s not code for gay lover, we don’t know what is…

Whatever, maybe if you guys had other friends, people wouldn’t think you’re sucking one another off. Although, it’s certainly an easy way to keep your names in the press.
