Long lost brothers or brothers from another mother?

Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey may have discovered they were brothers in Greece watching the U.S. team win the World Cup. Woody Harrelson was talking to Ma Mac McConaughey about his father (Charles Harrelson), and she mentioned that they knew each other. Matthew also believes that Harrelson’s father was on leave while his parents were undergoing their second divorce and that his mother and Harrelson’s father could have met in West Texas.

 “The year of [Matthew’s] birth, nine months before, she was on a sabbatical from her relationship with his supposed father, Jim.”

Though Woody Harrelson is excited, Matthew McConaughey is concerned about his father, who could not be the father he has been and known with all his life.

“It’s a little harder for me, because he’s asking me to take the chance to go, ‘Wait a minute, you’re telling me my dad may not be my dad of 53 years’ and believe in it? I got a little more skin in the game.”

Harrelson hearing McConaughey’s side helps to try to help Matthew see that this is a positive also…

“We want to go [DNA] test, but for him it’s a bigger deal because he feels like he’s losing a father. But I’m like, ‘No, you’re gaining a different father and a brother.”

However, what does Harrelson’s and McConaughey’s siblings feel about this?

Woody and Matthew have two siblings—Matthew McConaughey’s brothers, Michael [Rooster] and Patrick. Patrick was adopted in 1964 when his parents had problems conceiving a child. Patrick kept his life private and did not take the path of his brothers to be in shows or movies.

Michael McConaughey (Rooster) is a self-made millionaire; Rooster has a T.V. show amidst other businesses and is relatively active on social media. Matthew is a famous actor and producer. He has been featured in many roles and has landed several commercials. Rooster has experience making a million, losing all of it in one year, and rising again.

Woody’s brother Brett Harrelson followed Woody to L.A. After their father chose to kill a judge, Brett went under Woody’s direction. Brett was his assistant and worked up into being commercials.  Jordan is known for EDVT.

Hopefully, Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey will get a DNA test to know if they are siblings.
