Matthew McConaughey Praises His Own Film

Matthew McConaughey just posted an entry to his MySpace Celebrity page, praising his latest film, Tropic Thunder. In the film, the 38-year-old new dad plays Tugg Speedman’s (Ben Stiller) moronic agent Rick Peck (“Pecker”). Here’s what McConaughey had to say:

“Hey all, I went to [the] Tropic Thunder premiere last Tuesday night. All of the cast was there–really funny movie–there are surprises all over this film. And just when you think you know where the movie’s goin’, another surprise entrance by some character or plot twist surprises you. What a cast of characters! You will see actors you like doing things you’ve never seen them do before. Stiller did a top job directing too. The movie knows what it is and keeps delivering. There’s a lot of protests surrounding the pic, but if you see it, I think you’ll agree that all the “touchy” humor is in context, and in no way mean spirited or irresponsible. It’s just funny. I hope you enjoy the film. I had a blast steppin’ in to work on this project for just a few days. It’s another “brand” of comedy and a comedy team (Stiller and gang) that I wanted to play with, and am happy I did. Never lose your sense of humor, and just keep livin, McConaughey.”
