True Detective Stars Matthew McConaughey And Woody Harrelson Reunite For Photo

Hollywood has had its fair share of bromances, but one of the most enduring is that between Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

Over the past couple of decades, the two pals have starred in numerous films, including EDtv and Surfer, Dude. Most recently the two starred alongside each other in HBO's hit series True Detective, as hardened cops Rust Cohle and Marty Hart.

But after five years of being apart on screen, the two Texas natives have met up again and enjoyed a dip in the sea together.

Posting the joyous snap on his Instagram account, McConaughey wrote: "brothers from nother mothers?"

HBO also shared the pic, writing: "This True Detective reunion is alright, alright, alright."

Maybe this was taken during one of Harrelson's stops on his famed 'friendship tour'.

The Cheers star told Ellen DeGeneres that he travels around every year visiting some of his A-list pals, including Bono, Sacha Baron Cohen and McConaughey - last year, they all visited the U2 singer at his home in the South of France.

He said: "We were all in the south of France at Bono's. I take a 'friendship tour' pretty much every year. I thought about calling it a 'Bender Where I Leech Off My Rich Friends', but I thought, 'No, friendship tour!' You just go, stay at their house, drink oblivious, great!''

The candid photo comes just a few weeks after McConaughey marked his 50th birthday by joining Instagram.

The actor announced his arrival on the platform in the most Matthew McConaughey way possible - with an incredibly bizarre Insta story.

It begins with an extremely enjoyable 'badumbadumbbadumbbada' musical intro from McConaughey as the camera pans across to him in a chair.

He then sings: "I may not be willing but I'm... capably able.

"Do I have an Instagram? Well it would be a lot cooler if I did, and guess what? It is now a lot cooler, 'cause I do.

"Alright Instagram, let's do this. Let's get some howdies going - howdy."

He wasn't done yet though. He also shared a video in his first post, which has now been viewed almost a million times.

Speaking to Brooke Boney on Today about his decision to jump on the bandwagon, the Lincoln Lawyer actor said: "So far, so good."

He added: "As I said in my opening post, I'm not sure that I'm going to enjoy the dialogue, but I think I'll enjoy the monologue. Isn't there some filter on there that makes everyone just look how they wanna look? 'Oh, look who's 31 again!'"
