Matthew McConaughey Always Wanted to Be a Father

Matthew McConaughey Always Wanted to Be a Father

Matthew McConaughey shows off his baby blues on the brand new cover of People magazine, on newsstands November 7.

Here’s what the 45-year-old actor shared about some of his most life-altering moments:

On his childhood: “A boy loses his father, he quickly becomes a man. I was 22. I remember clearly the sobriety I felt in the pain of my father passing. The sorrow refined me, and I never looked at the world the same again.”

On trading in his sports car for a truck: “My truck was informal, rugged, social, like me. But this 300ZX [sports car] was my dream car, or so I thought. And as soon as I got it, something changed. I started acting like my car. I became really concerned with my appearance, meticulous, self-conscious.”

On parenthood: “Since I was 8 years old, the one thing I’ve always known was I wanted to be a father.”
