Matthew McConaughey Says Americans Should 'Embrace' Donald Trump as President

Matthew McConaughey had some interesting things to say about Donald Trump being in the White House.

The 47-year-old actor was recently asked what he thought about the new President and if Americans need to accept him.

“Well, they don’t have a choice now,” Matthew told ChannelFi. “He’s our president. And it’s very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time as we’ve had. At the same time, it’s time for us to embrace and shake hands with this fact and be constructive with him over the next four years.”

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!”

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves are now happily married with three beautiful kids – but when they first met, Camila made sure Matthew worked for it!

The 47-year-old Gold actor recently opened up about the couple’s first night together.

“So I’m healthily single, at a club on Sunset,” Matthew recalled on Howard Stern‘s Sirius XM show. “I’m not even a club guy, but this night I was a club guy, and I’m making margaritas at the end of the table.”

“Then this figure moves across the room,” he went on. “I remember saying to myself, ‘What is that?’ I didn’t say, ‘Who is that,’ I said, ‘What is that?’ She sits down, and I can’t get my eyes off her. And I’m waving, trying to get… [her attention].”

Matthew McConaughey Praises Wife Camila Alves For Support During 'Gold' Filming!

Not only did Matthew McConaughey have to gain an extra 50 pounds to play thrill-seeking businessman Kenny Wells in Gold, he also had to temporarily move to Thailand – but luckily, Matthew was able to bring his wife Camila Alves and their kids with him!

“You do all this work and people see it, and when they see it, they think you made it last week. But some of us have been a part of it for five years,” the 47-year-old actor expressed during the New York premiere of Gold on Tuesday night (via ET). “We picked up the family, uprooted everything, went to Thailand, did it, they came with me.”

“I have a wife that thankfully tells me when I go to work, ‘Don’t look in the rearview mirror. Go do your work, get obsessed with that. I got it. I got your back’,” Matthew added. “So it makes the whole process so much more enjoyable for me. It was a wonderful ride. They were very happy. I was very happy with you know the Kenny Wells part of me that I brought home. My nickname was Captain Fun for six months ’cause I was yes to pizza night, even if it was Tuesday morning. I was yes to going to the carnival at midnight on a school night. I was like yes, yes, yes.”
