Everyone’s talking about Lance Armstrong's doping confession to Oprah this morning—especially Hollywood on Twitter.
After years of vehemently denying he used performance enhancing drugs, Lance revealed to Oprah last night in the first part of their interview that he was lying all along.
Needless to say, many people are outraged that the seven time Tour de France winner and cancer survivor—who’s raised millions of dollars with his Livestrong campaign—swore under oath that he never used the drugs.
So why did he decide to come clean now?
“I don’t know that I have a great answer,” he told Oprah. “I will start my answer by saying this is too late. It’s too late for probably most people. And that’s my fault. I view this situation as one big lie that I repeated a lot of times.”

The Twitterverse is buzzing all about it on Twitter (at one point last night, “#Doprah” became a hit) and, of course, some of Hollywood’s biggest names got in on the action. While some shared their anger, others didn’t necessarily feel any ill will toward the former cyclist.
Find out how they feel about the situation below — will you tune in to the second part when it airs tonight, Jan. 18, at 9 p.m. on OWN?
