Matthew McConaughey decided to talk about his career, as well as his expectations after the break he took from the movie industry.
The actor has actually had a very interesting evolution in his career, taking certain risky choices. One of the biggest such risks was the moment when Matthew decided to take a break from his acting career.
In an interview with Variety, Matthew McConaughey went to explain that decision.
The actor claimed that he went to his wife and his agent and said “I’m going to stop for a bit. I’m going to sit back in the shadows. I’m getting into my 40s, a great time for a man. I’ve started a family. I want to take time to laugh and love and enjoy these adventures.”
However, the actor claimed that it hasn’t been easy. Actually, Matthew McConaughey said that this has been quite a scary move.
When the actor made this choice, he wasn’t sure how much time he will spend away from the big screen and how this break will affect his career.
In fact, Matthew never took the time to consider all these things, at least this is what he said. The actor explained that he just wanted to take some time off.
“I didn’t know how long they would dry out for, and that was scary. I would get sent things and the paychecks were great, and I would say no. Then, they quit sending them altogether. And then… nothing. So the message got through,” the famous actor explained in his interview.
However, Matthew McConaughey was able to make his comeback, which actually was an amazing one. The actor starred in the movie Dallas Buyers Club and got his first Academy Award nomination, something that made Matthew extremely proud.
So, after all, the risk paid off, as Matthew McConaughey managed to enter on another path in his acting career. The actor said that maybe before his break he would have not considered such a role, or maybe the creators of Dallas Buyers Club would have never thought of him.
Matthew McConaughey achieved an amazing performance in the movie, but this is not the only role the actor can be proud of. He also starred in The Wolf of Wall Street. The actor also added in his interview that this is an amazing time in his career, so he is absolutely proud of what he has managed to achieve. Maybe, Matthew will be a winner at the Oscars, too, even though nobody can tell what will happen, as the competition is amazing this year.
