I wonder how most Hollywood actors, producers, directors and wannabes feel about a bonafide superstar like Matthew McConaughey, not only giving an Oscar speech about God’s influence in his life – but now flat-out extolling the wonders and importance of God and traditional marriage?
My guess is they got steam coming out of their ears. Not only from the speech below – but scroll down for an interview about God & marriage that will make your lib friends blow a gasket:
Fortunately, as some big-time stars do – Matthew has the pleasure of speaking honestly and opening, in this cast to People Magazine about traditional values with far less fear of it affecting his career – because the real religion in Hollywood is green: Money.
You don’t land on a blacklist if you’re on the A-list and if you think for a minute the blacklist against conservatives, Republicans, Trump supporters or anyone else just slightly to the right of Jane Fonda doesn’t exist – you don’t know what you’re talking about. It’s real, friendo. It’s tough being a conservative in Hollywood – especially now – because they’re not even trying to hide it. You voted for Trump? You better shut your mouth or you are not going to work.
Matthew McConaughey is a rare individual with acting talents far beyond even what he has accomplished so far – his best is yet to come, I believe. He was great in the TV series True Detective; and frighteningly brilliant in the film; Dallas Buyers Club – a film about a seriously flawed Texan who contracts HIV in the early days of the AIDS epidemic and eventually becomes a hero and legend to the cause of fighting the disease and the corrupt politics, activists and pharaceutical companies that came with it.
Yet – one of the funniest characters I’ve ever watched is when McConaughey played Ben Stiller’s agent in the Hollywood insider comedy; Tropic Thunder. In other words, the man has skills. Mad skills.
And guess who he gives credit for his successful career and marriage? God & Family! Now think about that one for a little bit and ask if anyone on the left doesn’t pucker up, starting screaming; “NAZI” or even throw an M-80 at you for that kind of “hate speech”? Matthew McConaughey does not care, in fact, he’ll shoot right back with a calm smile:
“I had to get to the point where I saw [getting married] as more than just the thing to do,” McConaughey tells GQ for its November cover story. “I wanted to really want to. You know, I didn’t want it to be a destination; the fun is that we’re on the adventure together.”
Ultimately, McConaughey, 44, indeed tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Camila Alves in 2012 – but says that took a lot of reflecting.
“We talked about it spiritually. We did a lot of reading and talked to a lot of people that had been divorced, a lot of people that had been happily married. We talked to our pastor,” he says. “In the end, our understanding was, ‘Let’s go make a covenant, with you, me, and God.’ ”
Matthew has been married to his wife Camila Alves since 2012 and they have three children – Levi, Vida, and Livingston together. But he wasn’t finished – not by a long shot: “… it’s time for Hollywood liberals to “embrace” the election of Donald Trump and try to come up with ways to be “constructive” with the new president.
When the BBC’s Andrew Marr, asked if the “cultural elite” should ease up on President Trump; MM shot back: “Every single American actor or archetype who comes over to London dumps on Trump. You all completely hate him. Do you think it’s time that maybe Hollywood and the cultural elite of America gave this guy a break? He’s our president. It’s time for us to embrace — shake hands with this fact and be constructive with him over the next four years.”
Don’t misunderstand – he’s not giving anybody on any side the finger. He’s being sincere and honest and it’s a rare commodity in popular culture, the media, academia and America in general.
