Matthew McConaughey Gives Encouraging Commencement Speech at University of Houston
Matthew McConaughey hits the stage for the Commencement at the University of Houston at TDECU Stadium on Friday evening (May 15) in Houston, Texas.
During the ceremony, the 45-year-old Interstellar actor gave the students an encouraging speech.
“We know the market for college graduates now is more competitive than ever. Some of you already have a job lined up, you have a path where today’s job is gonna become tomorrow’s career,” Matthew told the graduates (via E! News).
He continued, saying: “But for most of you, the future is probably still a little fuzzy. And you don’t have that job that directly reflects the degree that you just got. Many of you don’t even have a job at all.. You don’t have the answers and it’s pretty damn scary. And I say that’s OK because that is how it is. This is the reality that many of you are facing, this is the world that we live in.”
