Matthew McConaughey Talks About Decision to 'Unbrand' From Certain Kinds of Films

Matthew McConaughey takes the cover of Esquire magazine’s November 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 46-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On his first child Levi’s birth: “Man is never more masculine than after the birth of his first child. I don’t mean in a macho way. I mean in terms of giving a man strength.”

On his proposal to Camila Alves: “I remember hitting the knee, looking into her eyes and…I remember her face. I remember this smile coming up from her feet. I remember her having to catch her breath. And she didn’t say yes right away. And then the whole family was going, Jeezus, she’s gonna say no.”

On making a conscious decision to “unbrand” after flicks such as How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Failure to Launch and Fool’s Gold: “All of a sudden, I understood, whoa, that’s become my brand.”
