Best buds could actually be blood brothers.

Speaking with Kelly Ripa on her podcast “Let’s Talk Off Camera” Matthew McConaughey floated a theory that Woody Harrelson might be his actual brother.

"Where I start and where he ends and where he starts and I end has always been a murky line, and that's part of our bromance," the Oscar winner said of his friend Harrelson. "My kids call him Uncle Woody, his kids call me Uncle Matthew, and you see pictures of us, and my family thinks a lot of pictures of him are me, and his family thinks a lot of pictures of me are him."

McConaughey said the pair were in Greece a few years ago when his mom told Harrelson, “Woody, I knew your daddy”.

“It was a loaded k-n-e-w,” he said. "Well, we went on to unpack this, what 'knew' meant, and did some math and found out that his dad was on furlough at the same time that my mom and dad were in their second divorce. Then there's possible receipts in places out in West Texas where there might have been a gathering, or a meeting, or a 'knew' moment."

Ripa couldn’t believe it and inquired about them taking DNA tests. McConaughey said they plan to.

"This is what we're on the precipice of now. Look, it's a little easier for Woody to say, 'Come on, let's do it,' because what's the skin in it for him? It's a little harder for me because he's asking me to take a chance and go, 'Wait a minute, you're trying to tell me my dad may not be my dad of 53 years of believing it?' I've got a little more skin in the game!"
