Matthew McConaughey Covers 'Esquire' April 2011

Matthew McConaughey suits up in Dolce & Gabbana on the cover of Esquire magazine’s April 2011 issue.

Here’s what the 41-year-old Lincoln Lawyer actor had to share:

On taking time off between movies: “I’ve done that before. I went to Peru after A Time to Kill. I had a lot to think about. Just grabbed a bag and left. And I went up and further in, until I was about as uncomfortable and unfamiliar with things as I could be. You know why I don’t go to Europe for these trips? Because in Europe everything pretty much works, or it almost works. I mean, it’s almost what I’m used to. But Peru, Mali, Morocco? Nothing works. Nothing. So you have to give up on what you know.”

On people’s perception of him: “Do I think the image of me is a true picture of who I am? No, it’s incomplete. But things about me that are out there — I’m not going to say they’re false. Am I a fun-loving guy, man? Who likes running around in the summer with his shirt off, man? Am I a guy who likes to hang out with his friends, and party and go to concerts and football games with his friends? Well, yeah! Yes, I am. Always have been. Always hopefully will be. You know?”

    you gotta keep in mind “A time to Kill” came out in 1996, so it was probably shot in 1995. So that’s 16 years ago.

    I love the idea of adventure and just packing 1 bag to go somewhere new, sounds like fun!
