To promote his new book, actor and activist, Matthew McConaughey fronts GQ Italia cover for April 2021.
It only makes sense that an iconoclast like Matthew McConaughey would take the basic idea of an autobiography and make it all his own.
Part memoir, part self-help manifesto, Greenlights finds the actor sharing some of the most intimate, illuminating, and hilarious moments from his life and career.
There is so much content out there these days. It’s been a godsend during a pandemic that keeps us inside most of the time. We need to entertain ourselves someway. But it can be hard to pick something out of the neverending supply of options we got. But when something stands apart from the fray, the choice is easy. And that choice is easy with the new book Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey.
McConaughey draws inspiring lessons from his blue-collar Texas childhood, his father’s tragic passing while in bed with McConaughey’s mother, and his history of sexy dreams that seem to prophesy big life moments like meeting his wife. We especially loved getting an inside look at how the Hollywood star prepares for his movies—did you know his iconic “Alright, alright, alright” from Dazed and Confused was ad-libbed during a costume fitting?
In print, McConaughey comes across as every bit the charming rogue he so often plays on screen, but he’s also a masterful storyteller. Greenlights proves that, at least in McConaughey’s case, real life truly is stranger than fiction.
You can pick up Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey right now for no money at all. You just need to sign up for a trial to Audible and you can then get this for free. And we would highly suggest that you do so. There is nothing like hearing the sweet Texas poetry that rings forth from the mouth of one of our most unique celebrities going today.
