Lance Armstrong's life of lies couldn't have been easy.

Sheryl Crow, who dated the disgraced cyclist from 2003 to 2006, seems to have empathy for her ex-fiancé. She told Entertainment Tonight that it's "got to be really hard to walk around knowing that you're not telling the truth about something."

"I think that honesty is always the best bet and that the truth will set you free," she added. "To carry a weight like that around would be devastating in the long run…I always contend that the truth is the best way to go."

Last week, Lance finally admitted to Oprah Winfrey he used performance-enhancing drugs for all seven of his Tour de France wins. He blamed his "ruthless desire to win at all costs" for leading him to cheat and attempt to cover up his lies for so many years.

And while Sheryl was gracious about her ex's downfall, we bet she's secretly glad to have been set free of that relationship.

Lance had lots of famous friends
