Last month Matthew was on cover of People magazine, in which was dedicated to him naming 10 moments that changed his life.
At 45, Matthew McConaughey has the kind of life most actors can only dream of – an Oscar for last year’s Dallas Buyers Club; a new sci-fi blockbuster, Interstellar; a gorgeous family he adores. And with his ready smile and laid-back charm, he makes it all look so… easy. Not true: The pride of Longview, Texas, has a fearsome work ethic, an unquenchable thirst for self-discovery and a joie de vivre that has nothing to do with fame. ‘As long I can remember, he’s been happy,’ says his mom, Kay. ‘He’s the same thoughtful, kind, happy person he always was. He’s just Matthew..” Now the actor takes the role of writer for People and shares 10 moments that shaped him.

Oscar-winning actor and all around chill guy Matthew McConaughey didn’t just spend Thanksgiving with his family. Instead, the McConaugheys spent it with hundreds of other families volunteering for the Meals on Wheels program in Austin.
According to KXAN:
More than 150 families volunteered, including actor Matthew McConaughey. Someone out there will get star treatment, when he and his family deliver.
“Every day there is so many people in need, older adults living alone in isolation, some of them with very little in the way of money. Certainly very few friends to come and see them,” said Dan Pruett, CEO of Meals on Wheels and More.
True to his cause, McConaughey flattered his fellow volunteers and the local press with video, head shots, and a few brief comments. He also spent some time with the homeless, trying to explain the complicated nature of Interstellar‘s plot. Otherwise, he kept on volunteering.
Back in 2013 Matthew and Scarlett Johansson team up with director Martin Scorsese for Street of Dreams – Dolce & Gabbana’s black-and-white mini feature film. The film has been refreshed for this Christmas with a new campaign shot by Peter Lindbergh. Telegraph Luxury has a full article about this new project, and you can now find pictures added in our gallery, also all related videos in our archive.
Earlier this year, McConaughey has entered a multiyear deal to appear in a series of TV and digital ads for Lincoln. The first spots, shot in and around Austin, where the native Texan McConaughey lives, are directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (watch it below), and debuted in September.
Now, Lincoln announced that its overall sales were up 25 percent last month, the strongest October for the beleaguered marque since 2007 — after the McConaughey commercials and their multiple parodies began airing. Spoofs by Conan O’Brien, Ellen DeGeneres and South Park, SNL aired no less than three parodies of the commercials on its Oct. 25 episode.
