Man-Love for Matt and Lance?

'Wasn't for Us'

10/17/2006 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lance ArmstrongThey might not be gay lovers, but Lance Armstrong and Matthew McConaughey certainly do have cutely butch names for one another. In the November issue of Details magazine, on newsstands this week, cover boy Lance says that the BFFs call each other "LiveStrong" and "J.K. Livin," and when asked whether they're gay, he jokes: "We tried it. Wasn't for us."

The two Austin, Tex. natives have been friends for years, but they really started to bond, says Armstrong, when their respective relationships with Sheryl Crow and Penelope Cruz dissolved. And when it comes to the tabloid attention both attract, they've got totally different approaches. "He's all tin cans and yam," says Lance of the famously crunchy Matt. "I get s**t on my Blackberry ... My cell phone. Most of it is bulls**t."

Elsewhere, Armstrong expresses shock that President Bush wouldn't fork over $1 billion for his charity -- given that bird flu, he says, got $7 billion. And he sets the record straight about Jake Gyllenhaal portraying his life story: He's not.

Is it me - or in the past year there has been alot of emphasis on announcing that men have monthly cramps, man-o-pause, etc..etc.? So why not take two guys that have been 'friends" and have lived in the same town and call then "gay"? Listen: girls who have girls for friends are not always gay - and guys who have guys for friends are not alyways gay either. People do not have to have people of the opposite sex hanging around them all the time to prove they are NOT gay. Sometimes it's just the opposite. Hence smart-ass retort, "We tried it. It wasn't for us." People are trying to make men into women. They're not. TMZ is trying to make a story where there is none. No story, just a bunch of TMZ old ladies sitting on a porch in their rockng chairs spreading gossip to cover up the real issue which is not titilating at all: Bush didn't donate to Lance's charity.

Disgusted    

Lance Armstrong is a self absorbed megalomaniac: This is the man that dumped his family for another woman The man that cheated on the girlfriend he dumped his family for. The man who dumped his celebrity girlfriend because he couldnt handle the fact that his star would diminish with retirement while hers would still burn bright. This is the man that has lived under a cloud of doping allegations his entire career. Hero? Role model?...... I dont think so, more like a model for what you dont want your kids to grow up and be, dishonst and pathetic.
