VIDEO: Matthew McConaughey Explains Why He Can't Be Called 'Matt'!

Matthew McConaughey has opened up about why he can never, ever go by just “Matt” again!

While promoting his latest film Gold on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday (January 24), the 47-year-old actor revealed that the reason he always go by Matthew and never just Matt is because of his mother, who was also his kindergarten teacher.

“I was in kindergarten… My buddy Josh Griffin says, “Hey Matt, you want to go play on the monkey bars?” And I ran out and said, “Yeah!,” Matthew explained to Jimmy. “And halfway to the monkey bars I feel this hand on my shoulder — whomp, BAM! Slammed me to the ground. I look up, and it’s my mother in my face, and she’s like, “What are you doing?” I said, “I’m going to play the monkey bars with Josh.” She says, “Who is?” I said, “I am.” She said, “What’s your name?” I said, “Matthew.” She says, “Don’t you ever answer to Matt again. I named you Matthew from the Bible.” I was like, “Yes ma’am!”
