Matthew McConaughey Was Estranged From His Mom for 8 Years & Reveals the Reason Why

Matthew McConaughey revealed that he was once estranged from his mother Kay for eight years and he’s revealing why.

“I would have conversations and then all of a sudden—whoop—what we’d talk about would end up in the paper three days later,” Matthew said during an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show. “I was like, ‘Mom, that was between us!’” The turning point was when he turned on his television and saw his mom giving a tour of his childhood home. Her response was ‘I didn’t think you’d find out.’”

Matthew has since patched things up with his mom, saying, “I’ve forgiven her. It wasn’t her fault. I just had to make some boundaries,” he said. “It was tough for eight years, but we went through it and we’re on the other side of it. It’s good.”

Matthew‘s mom talked to the press about this topic concerning his dad all the way back in 2008.
