Matthew McConaughey revealed in a recent interview that he had almost given up his acting career to start with the role of a nature guide or high school football instructor.
What more was revealed in the interview?
During his chat, McConaughey opened his battle and turned himself from romantic to more dramatic roles. The star from the “Dallas Buyers Club” talked to Oprah Winfrey in the latest episode of her Apple TV+ program “The Oprah Conversation.”
“I dreamed about other occupations,” he told Winfrey, and though he’s a winning Oscar star now. McConaughey revealed that he finds himself to be a high school football coach, leading orchestra, a nature guide, or a teacher.
“In the same way I’ve been to Australia for a year and held on a handshake, I’ve been in,” McConaughey said. “So I began to believe that even though it gets more complicated, it means more reward on the other side of the page. Keep with it, stay with it, McConaughey, and do not pull the parachute” he always said these words to himself so that he can stay calm and focus on things.
Though McConaughey did not teach full-time high school, after consulting with his school, he joined the faculty at Austin University in August 2019 as a visiting teacher in Texas. McConaughey did not comment for the first time about his decision to take more serious positions outside Rome-com.
The actor said in an excerpt from a recent book called ‘Green Lights,’ that he had made the decision to ignore romantic movies after starring in films like ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 days,’ leading him to turn 14.5 million dollars (one of his largest payrolls) down into a star in a Rom-com unnamed.
