The line between Matthew McConaughey the person and Matthew McConaughey a satire is removing blurrier and blurrier, and it was really clear during a American Cinematheque Gala on Tuesday night. The gala, that honors an actor each year for his or her achievement in film, chose to applaud McConaughey for his 22-year (and counting) career.
According to Variety, a night was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, who joked about the bro-tastic actor’s preeminence in a romantic-comedy genre, while friends and cohorts like Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon, Woody Harrelson, and Sandra Bullock teased McConaughey and his “Alright, alright, alright” persona.
However, no one could tip McConaughey’s speech, as he delved out life lessons he schooled from years on a job.
According to Variety, McConaughey talked about a income cause in his sundry film career, saying, “No. 1: The same book with $10 million trustworthy is funnier than a same book with $1 million trustworthy to it.” McConaughey also pronounced he’d learned a significance of preparing for film roles—a distant cry from progressing in his career when he chose to wing it many of a time until he satisfied he’d concluded to do a “two-page digression in Spanish.”
The celebration showed highlights from McConaughey’s career, including clips from a highly-anticipated space epic, Interstellar. At a end, Kimmel, executive Christopher Nolan, and McConaughey common a turn of Miller Lites.
