Hollywood stars are going to do a DNA test for relationship.
A story worthy of being screened as a movie or TV series takes place in Hollywood – best friends, 61-year-old Woody Harrelson and 53-year-old Matthew McConaughey, may turn out to be relatives, or rather, half-brothers by father. A strong friendship between them began in 1999 on the set of the film “TV Ed”. Earlier, the actors claimed that they almost immediately felt kindred spirits in each other and began to call themselves brothers. The children of the stars also call them “Uncle Woody” and “Uncle Matthew” respectively.
In a new interview, McConaughey spoke about the moment that made both of them seriously think about kinship and even undergo a DNA test. The actor admitted that such thoughts first appeared to him and Woody after the words of McConaughey's mother, said on vacation in Greece a few years ago: “We were sitting together and talking when she suddenly said that she knew Woody's father. In her case, this word meant not just getting to know a person, but something much more, we immediately understood this. After we delved into the study of our pedigrees, because we are really very similar – sometimes our relatives even confuse us in photographs, “says Matthew.
The study of the family tree and other documents gave impressive results – McConaughey's mother, after a divorce from his father, and Harrelson's father were together in Texas and even visited the same establishments. However, this, of course, is not enough to establish kinship, and the truth can only be found out with the help of a test.
Matthew he admits that he both wants and does not want to go through it, because in the case of a positive result, it turns out that his father is a different person. And this other man has an incredible background – Woody's father Charles Harrelson was a professional hit man, and first went to jail for murder when the future actor was seven years old. As soon as he got out of prison, Charles got there again – in 1979 he was accused of the assassination of a district judge and received two life sentences at once.
