During the event, Matt opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about changing the direction of his career and said he had to “un-brand” himself from just starring in romantic comedies.

“I took off, and had an un-branding phase. Not a re-branding phrase, an un-branding phase,” Matt recalled after the birth of his son Levi in 2008. “I said, ‘I’m out.’”

“That anonymity, that being away, that not being the shirtless guy on the beach in a rom-com, by un-branding, then all of a sudden things came to me that I had been wanting to do,” Matt added. “Dramatic roles that I had been pursuing were coming my way.”

Other stars in attendance included Trevor Noah, journalist Ronan Farrow, activist Gloria Steinem, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, and tennis icon Billie Jean King.

If you missed it, Matt is trying to set up his mom with this actor’s dad!

Matthew McConaughey Is Setting Up His Mom With Hugh Grant's Dad!

Matthew McConaughey is setting up his mother!

The Gentleman actor is planning to set up his mother with his co-star Hugh Grant‘s father, he confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

“His father’s 91, my mother’s 88. Yeah, why not? Next week, they’re supposed to meet, and we probably won’t see them for the rest of the night,” Matthew said.

Hugh chimed in, saying that the date will be “red hot.”

The two came up with the idea while they were discussing their mother and father’s plans during Christmas in a Mashable interview.

“Would your 87-year-old mother like a nice 91-year-old Englishman? She still married? Your dad still alive?” Hugh asked.

“No, no, pop moved on in ’92. And then her second man of 19 years just moved on two years ago, so she’s single and vital,” Matthew confirmed.
