Since there have been so many new magazines with Matthew on the cover lately, I thought it’d be nice to update the photo archive with many more. Over 30 albums with scans from 2001-2013 have been added, as the archive was missing a lot of them (many still lack the editorial and article). Click on the previews below to see them all in in full size. If you have any scans to contribute, please send them our way at firstname.lastname@example.org, full credit will be given. Thanks!
The cast of Interstellar – Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway – covers another magazine this week, namely The Hollywood Reporter. This time alongside the epic film’s director Christopher Nolan. They sat down for a roundtable interview with the magazine, where they discussed the movie to space and back (get it?) for the issue. Read the entire article at the magazine’s official website. Interstellar arrives in theaters worldwide on November 7th (and to IMAX screens two days early).
Did you all get involved with the science? Did you all meet Kip Thorne? What did you ask him?
Anne Hathaway: I tried to understand the science in the movie, but I don’t remember anything about what I talked to Kip about except at the end, when we talked about playing the trumpet. Because he played the trumpet and I used to play the trumpet.
Jessica Chastain: I remember on set I was writing this very complex equation, and of course I needed to know, I needed it to look like I knew what I was talking about. I was trying to memorize this “XYZ3″ insane [equation] — and he said, “In actuality, this could be three blackboards long.” (Laughs.)
McConaughey: Any conversation with Kip, you don’t come away with any more acute of a finite answer. You come away with more questions. Every answer opens up another question. So it sort of exponentially gets longer and longer. We talked about the bending of timelines — theoretically, how you would go faster than the speed of light.
Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway were recently interviewed by The New York Times about their film, Interstellar. The article features some nice portraits of the actors, as well as some great answers to the magazine’s questions. As always, click on the preview to the left to see the pictures in full size in our photo archive, then click here to read the article. More coming up on MMO in a few, stay tuned.
Ms. Chastain, Ms. Hathaway and Mr. McConaughey gathered recently to discuss the pathways that led them to “Interstellar” and the universes to which it introduced them. Together, they carried themselves less like a crew of seasoned, seen-it-all veterans than three guileless novices still acclimating to their mission and to one another. They kidded around, swapped notes on Mr. Nolan and their interpretations of the film, and apologized profusely for their lack of Ph.D.s.
These are excerpts from that conversation.
Q. Did any of you grow up dreaming of someday becoming an astronaut?
MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY I did not. I was very much, what’s happening on the ground was going to be enough. Until I made “Contact” [the 1997 movie about the search for extraterrestrial life]. That made me actually wonder: “O.K., it’s not just what’s happening here, east, west, in front of us. You can look up. What’s the new frontier to the north?”
JESSICA CHASTAIN I loved Princess Leia as a kid. I loved that she was so badass and took control. But I have no interest in being one of those people on the spaceships they’re advertising that go to the moon. No thank you. I’ll be one of those people that stays on Earth, eating corn.
ANNE HATHAWAY When I was in fifth grade, my older brother asked me how I was doing in school, and I said I did just get a 52 on a math test. Later, I said I wanted to be an astronaut, and he said, ‘Well, you’re going to have to raise your math scores if you want to do that.’ Later in life, I discovered I do love science, and I do love physics. But I was really happy that in this film, I could still be bad at math and be an astronaut.
The promotion for Interstellar are kicking into full gear this week, and Matthew McConaughey is featured on the cover of several magazines. One of them is the November issue of GQ magazine. He talks about the movie, his career so far, and about his family. It’s an interesting article for sure, so be sure to head over to GQ’s site to read the full piece.

How do you like the word McConaissance?
It’s a cool word. It sounds good. It’s got a good meter.
It’s almost like you had to have one, just so we could call it that.
When you say it, it’s like, “I don’t know what that is, but it sounds good.”
You’ve been famous since your early twenties. Did you feel like it was a problem, having your image set at such a young age?
I’ve never had fears that I was stuck in one thing. I’m sure we’re going to talk about the years when I was in romantic comedies and I was seen as the guy who was on the beach, running around shirtless. I did that. Damn right that was me. I wasn’t scared like, “Oh God, I’m going to be stuck here.” But I was like, I understand at some point that that is in italics now. So I said, “You know what? I’m not going to be openly presenting that for a while. I’m going to un-brand.”
To accompany the previous post, here are a couple of video clips of Matthew McConaughey as well as some of the co-stars that honored him at the American Cinematheque ceremony.

According to multiple sources, Gus Van Sant’s The Sea of Trees has wrapped filming and will continue in post-production. The movie – starring Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe and Naomi Watts – was filmed on location in Japan and Massachusetts. Along with this piece of news, we also got the official synopsis for the film. Check it out below. The Sea of Trees is expected to arrive in cinemas sometime in 2015 (possibly later in the year, in time for the 2016 award season).
Arthur Brennan (Matthew McConaughey) treks into Aokigahara, known as the The Sea of Trees, a mysterious dense forest at the base of Japan’s Mount Fuji where people go to contemplate life and death. Having found the perfect place to die, Arthur encounters Takumi Nakamura (Ken Watanabe), a Japanese man who has also lost his way. The two men begin a journey of reflection and survival, which affirms Arthur’s will to live and reconnects him to his love with his wife (Naomi Watts).
