Matthew McConaughey to 'Variety': Damn Right This is a Great Time in My Career!

Matthew McConaughey is his usual dapper self on the cover of Variety magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 44-year-old Dallas Buyers Club actor had to share with the mag:

On where he’s at right now: “For the next two months, I’m playing the character of Matthew McConaughey, an actor proud of the films he’s been in. And if any of those films or his performances are in awards shows, he’s going to go, heart high and head up, and look them all in the eye and say, ‘Damn right this is a great time in my career.’ That’s the role I’m in now. I’ve got a lot to be thankful for.”

On playing roles in rom-coms: “It is a hard challenge to make it work, to tell a story you’ve seen time and time again that you know what the ending is going to be. You have to stay light, you have to keep it moving. You drop anchor in one of those movies, and the whole thing sinks.”

On if Dallas Buyers Club was a difficult shoot: “I’ve got a saying: When faced with the inevitable, get relative. The inevitable was, I’m going to do this. I’ve got support from my family that insulates me. I surrounded myself with everything I needed to go on this adventure. And the focus was exciting. I said to myself, ‘We’re taking a trip, McConaughey. This is a story you want to tell. Those adventures you talk about — you’re on one now.’ ”

Matthew McConaughey: Awards Season Attention is 'Very Nice'

Matthew recently chatted with The Independent about the awards season attention he’s been getting, including the numerous wins for Dallas Buyers Club.

“[It's] very nice,” Matthew said. “If I’m in the conversation, that’s cool.”

Matthew McConaughey: I Changed My Lifestyle for 'Dallas Buyers Club'

Matthew McConaughey keeps fit with a jog along with beach on Wednesday (February 5) in Malibu, Calif.

“I didn’t know how much weight I needed to lose” the 44-year-old actor said to the New York Times about his role in Dallas Buyers Club. “I thought, probably 30, and I got to 30, and some people were like, ‘You’re a little thin.’ And I knew, ‘Well, this isn’t enough,’ because Ron Woodroof looked more than a little thin. And then I just kept going.”

“It actually changed my whole lifestyle. I became a hermit. I was becoming a scientist on Ron Woodroof,” Matthew said. “This is an anarchic character. Keep the businessman, you’ll get the crusader. Keep the son of a b*tch, you’ll get the humanity.”
