With this new photo, actor-author Matthew McConaughey leaves us with a question. Is this the epitome of cool or not?
Outsiders, we all have an opinion about which actor, entertainer, or athlete might be the “King of Cool” or “Queen of Cool.” Some put actor Steve McQueen, singer-entertainers Frank Sinatra or Bobby Darin, or quarterback Joe Namath in the mix.
Again, we all have our choices so you can make your own.
But let’s just enjoy the ambiance created by Matthew McConaughey in this photo that he shared on Twitter on Monday.
Looks like the “Dazed and Confused” and “Dallas Buyers Club” actor wants some private time.
Matthew McConaughey, who lives in Austin, Texas with his family, published his first book, “Greenlights,” a memoir, in 2020.
Besides his film work, the actor maintains a solid presence on social media. His YouTube channel has more than 600,000 subscribers, while he’s got 5.5 million Instagram followers.
McConaughey also spends time as a professor of practice at his alma mater, The University of Texas at Austin.
He teaches at UT’s Department of Radio-Television-Film at the Moody College of Communication.
Matthew McConaughey Loves Feeling Of Being A Family Man
Matthew McConaughey loves being a family man.
He and his wife, actress Camila Alves, have three boys and a girl to care for these days.
Being a father has been an important role for McConaughey to fill in his life. It’s given him a way of feeling “immortal” about filling the fatherly role.
“First child born — that was a biggie for me,” he said while being interviewed on Mayim Bialk’s podcast “Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown.”
“I remember [thinking] to myself, I was like, I just became immortal,” McConaughey said. “Biologically so, but even more than that, this is it. This is what I’ve dreamed of being all my life — not immortal, but a father.”
The way he and his wife are raising their children is much different than what he was around growing up. Matthew McConaughey said his parents would bicker between themselves. The power of fear was used around him as a young boy.
McConaughey does not physically punish his kids. He and Camila have worked hard on creating their own parenting style.
“Camila and I are trying to do it different than my parents did, or even her parents did,” he said. “Are we doing it better? I don’t know. We’ll see how the kids get out there and negotiate. Me and my two brothers have done alright, and my older brothers had it rougher than I did…”.
If you head down to Austin, Texas, and you happen to think you see him walking around, then it might be him.
