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?”

I don’t know what’s up with him. I used to think he was nice looking. Now I think he’s icky.

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!
