Is Matthew McConaughey Going to Run for Office? There May Be Signs That Point to Yes
Many celebrities have gone out of the confines of their job descriptions and have explored the messy world of politics. From the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger to Stacey Dash, all of them dipped their toes in serving the mass – now, people are wondering if Matthew McConaughey is going to follow in their footsteps.
The 50-year-old actor has noticeably taken a hiatus from mainstream media and that’s because he has been very much involved in his community at Austin, Texas. He is an instructor of film in the University of Texas, his alma mater, and he also acts as the minister of culture for the institution’s soon-to-be arena.
That said, he was asked if he would ever consider running for office. Matthew didn’t shoot down the possibility but only said that he wouldn’t be interested in a position that will go against what he believes in.
As an MOC, the Interstellar star described his role as a preserver of the values of universities and institutions.
On His Family
Matthew and wife Camila Alves, who is the co-owner of Yummy Spoonfuls, along with their three children Levi, Livingston, and Vida, are now residing in the actor’s hometown. He even made it a point to turn his kids into Longhorns fans.
The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days thespian is also the owner of the soccer team Austin FC. His love of the game was passed on to his kids, who also like playing the sport.
Despite hoping that soccer could help his offspring get into good schools, he explained that he and his wife would love it even more if the young ones would become better individuals who are conscientious, confident, singular-thinking, and autonomous. Matthew went on to underline the importance of letting their children pursue what they really want.
If the husband and wife observed that their kids are passionate about something they are really good at, then they would fully support them. He reiterated that they wouldn’t push them into anything they don’t want to be.
Calling On the Students
Amid the pandemic, the MOC also teamed up with a judge and mayor to remind students to stay home. Could this be a sign that he really is going to officially serve the public?
If that plan would materialize, it will not be shocking, that’s for sure. There are many stars who have used their voice for a cause and for the betterment of the many.
Activist and actress Cynthia Nixon, who may be best known for her role in an HBO series, ran for governor of the Big Apple in the past elections. However, she lost to Andre Cuomo.
