Lance Confesses
Lance Armstrong admits to doping in interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The fallout begins.

Hollywood is reacting to Lance Armstrong’s confession to Oprah that he used illegal substances during his famous cycling career. Celebuzz has compiled a list of celebrity reactions to the somber interview.

One-time Armstrong pal Rita Wilson was irked by his definition of a cheat. Armstrong told Oprah that he looked up the definition and didn’t feel that it pertained to him – in fact, he claimed that using drugs was “a level playing field.”

Wilson retorted on her Twitter: “CHEAT (noun) A person who behaves dishonestly in order to gain an advantage. Lance left out the “behaves dishonestly” part, right?”

Other celebs voiced their disgust with the Livestrong founder via Twitter during the exclusive 90-minute special.

Former Friends star Matthew Perry said, “I always want to make sure Oprah is on MY side” as he watched the cyclist come clean after years of vehement denials about his drug use.

On Thursday, Oprah opened the interview with some key yes-or-no questions in what was arguably the most blunt and straight-forward part of the admission. He confessed to taking testosterone, banned substances, and Human Growth Hormone to boost his performances in the sport’s most prestigious race, the Tour de France, for seven years.
