Matthew McConaughey Won't Stop His Kids From Going Into Show Business If They Want To

Matthew McConaughey has opened up about his three children he shares with wife Camila Alves in a brand new interview.

The 50-year-old actor revealed that he and his eldest son, Levi, are a lot alike in many ways.

“Levi is the most considerate person I’ve ever met,” Matthew shared. “Yeah, he’s extremely considerate and a very, very sensitive young man and really cares — really caring kid. And he, like me, has a very much perfectionist bone in him.”

He continued that Levi is “a great salesman, he’s a great debater, he’s a great storyteller, he’s becoming a really good storyteller. He and I, we riff up stories and he knows, we give a little wink when we embellish somewhere, like ‘Oh, that didn’t happen, but hey, it’s better for the story,’ but for the most part he’s very active and he’s becoming a good buddy of mine now as he’s reaching 12.”

Matthew also spoke about whether he’d be okay if Levi, daughter Vida and youngest son, Livingston, wanted to go into entertainment like he did.

“Look, I want them to do whatever it is they’re fashioned to do,” he shared. “Whatever they have an innate ability to do, and are willing to put in the work to get better at it. Whatever that is, I want them to do that. If that becomes something in the industry that I’m in? Bravo. I’ve met some of the most wonderful people in my life in my industry, I love what I do. Everybody on a set of a film or a TV show has to be great at their particular job for it to work.”

Matthew added that all three are kind of already in the industry, as he’s “started to employ them. They do all my photo shoots now. They did the Longbranch ads. Levi did.”

“He’s the DP, he’s the one going out there, we’re setting up the GoPros. We’re doing the editing. So, maybe I’ll have a little McConaughey production crew here, and we’ll be a one-stop shop.”

Just last week, Camila shared a rare photo of Levi, and many commented of just how much he looks like Matthew. See it here!
