Renowned television personality Maury Povich offered to conduct a DNA test for Hollywood stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
This intriguing offer comes in the wake of speculation that the two actors might be biological brothers, a theory sparked by comments made by McConaughey’s mother about Harrelson’s father.
Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, both acclaimed actors, have been friends for many years. Their camaraderie extends beyond their personal lives and into their professional careers, with the duo having starred together in several comedy films.

Their most notable collaboration, however, was on the critically acclaimed TV series where they portrayed Louisiana State Police detectives.
Their performances were so compelling that they both received nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2014. The show itself also got nominated for Outstanding Drama Series that year, with both actors serving as executive producers.
The speculation about their possible familial connection began when McConaughey revealed in an interview that his mother’s remark about Woody’s father had prompted him to investigate his family history.
However, both actors have shown reluctance towards taking a DNA test to confirm or refute this theory.
Enter Maury Povich, a veteran television host known for conducting DNA tests on his self-titled daytime show for over three decades. Povich offered his services to the actors in a clip to E! News, adding an unexpected twist to this Hollywood mystery.
