VENICE, Italy (AP) — Director Alex Gibley started filming Lance Armstrong before the cyclist acknowledged doping, and looking back now at the 2009 footage he realizes "there was a lot of material there where he was just lying to me straight out."
Gibley was in Venice on Tuesday for the premiere of his film "The Armstrong Lie," in which he salvaged the 2009 footage meant for a comeback movie and added interviews with Armstrong after the stunning disclosure.
Gibley said that Armstrong "to some extent, is always a curator of his own myth and his own story" and once he realized that people no longer idolize him the same way "I think he wanted to spin it."
Still, Gibley maintains that Armstrong "was more honest" in the later interviews.
