BREAKFAST WITH ASSHOLES: 28. MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY
HOLLYWOOD – Oscar winner, Rust Cole and former Fool’s Gold fool, Matthew McConaughey sat down with the Studio Exec this morning where the True Detective star, tucked into seven glasses of water and gorged himself on looking at an apple for forty seconds.
‘If I look at it for longer, it goes straight on my hips,’ said the Killer Joe actor.
So Matthew, what is your take on the McConaissance?
A’right, a’right a’right. Well, you see when I was a young man I used to have to look out and around me to see if there were a role model that I could use, someone who might inspire me. I looked and looked and frankly I could see no one worth more than a lick of paint, but one day I was in the bathroom, jerking off or something I don’t recall, and I happened to catch sight of myself in the mirror. And I thought there he is. That’s the one I’m gonna imitate and try to be like.
Matthew McConaughey in person.
I won’t deny I spent some time leaning against Kate Hudson on posters, but it paid the rent. Then Kate taught me how to read and I was able to actually see what the films would be like before they got made via these paper things they call scripts (for more on this Click Here).
So then you made Killer Joe, Mud, True Detective and Dallas Buyers Club.
That’s a’right, a’right, a’right. I mean I didn’t want to alienate my old fans so I also did The Paperboy for Lee Daniels. Just to give them something dumb. And my Oscar speech of course was what I like to call classic McConaughey. I admire myself from the past as well as looking towards my future self for inspiration. When I need me in an emergency, I check out the Matthew McConaughey of today. Any reflective surface’ll do.
Yeah. You know I think I’m going to be sick.
Oh really? Water a bit strong for you, huh?
Where’s the bathroom?
It’s just down the corridor and then you take a’right a’right a’right.
