In fact, in his own words, he was “pissed off.”
Matthew and Lance have been good friends for several years now and Matthew, like many people, was surprised by Lance’s revelation. The actor says that at first he took the whole thing personally, but then realized that he couldn’t think that way; “What was he supposed to do? Call me to the side and go, ‘Hey man, I did it but don’t tell anybody.’ Then I would have really had a reason to be pissed off at him, going, ‘You want me to walk around holding this?’” Matthew told MTV News when questioned about the whole unpleasant situation.
Matthew said he became sad for his friend instead of angry, but that his feelings turned to happiness for the Lance that is now trying to move forward into an “authentic” period of life. He referred to Lance as a “truly free man,” who no longer carries the weight of his lies on his shoulders, and says that no matter how hard things are for Lance at the moment he knows his friend is looking “things in the eye” and will be able to “deal.”
Matthew sounds like a good friend indeed.
