The disgraced cyclist's admission to Oprah about using performance-enhancing drugs tried to appear apologetic, but a lot of people didn't buy it.

Now that time has passed, Armstrong is being a lot more direct in an interview with France's Le Monde, admitting that he "didn't invent doping."

He was just better at it than everyone else.

File this under Lance Armstrong image-tarnishing news you didn't see coming.

Macie, a frequent guest on the Howard Stern Show, claims that Lance Armstrong once asked her to lick his butt in a hotel bathroom. Seriously.

She and a friend allegedly enjoyed a night out in L.A. with Lance "5-6 years ago," and eventually returned to his hotel room ... where $h!t got weird.

"I went to use the bathroom, and I went in and Lance was bent over a bathtub and she was just face deep in his a**hole. I was terrified," she said.

Note to Lance Armstrong: This is a new low for you.

Forget admitting to Oprah Winfrey that you are a lying cheat. Forget breaking that same news to your 13-year old won.

Charlie Sheen - yes, that Charlie Sheen - thinks you are a "creepy douche."

Those were the words Sheen used to described the disgraced cyclist during an appearance on The Tonight Show yesterday, although he seemed more upset that Armstrong blew him off in person awhile back than that whole performance-enhancing drugs thing.

Watch Sheen explain now:

The new Star Wars director and a 2013 Academy Awards nominee may be teaming up to bring Lance Armstrong's controversial life to the big screen.

With J.J. Abrams already on board to produce a Paramount Pictures film based on the upcoming book, "Cycle of Lies: The Fall of Lance Armstrong," Bradley Cooper has made it clear:

He would like to portray the disgraced athlete.

Brad Cooper

"I would be interested," Cooper told BBC News of the role, which at one time was rumored to be going to Matt Damon. "I think he's fascinating. What a fascinating character."

That's one way to describe the ex-Tour de France champion, who owned up to drug use last week in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

What do you think of the Silver Linings Playbook star taking on Armstrong? Good choice?

He says he wouldn't have bought “It’s Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life” had he known the truth about Armstrong’s involvement with doping.

In the 2000 book and the 2003 follow-up, “Every Second Counts,” Armstrong denied ever having used banned substances, which he clearly had done.

In light of Lance Armstrong admitting to performance-enhancing drug use, many have now started to wonder:

What did Sheryl Crow know?

The singer, after all, dated the cyclist from 2003-2006 and was even interviewed by federal prosecutors in 2011. It's unclear what she told them at the time about Armstrong's rumored doping, but Crow did finally speak out last night about her ex's confession to Oprah Winfrey.
