Matthew McConaughey is already a legend for simply being…himself. However, in an interview with ChannelFi, the famous actor has become even more frickin’ legendary, if such thing was possible.
While discussing his new film, appropriately titled “Gold,” the issue of Trump’s America came up.
“For quite a lot of this film, I sort of thought ‘this is not Trump’s America, but small-time, central, redneck America sticking one up to the snotty East Coast elites,’ as it were,” the interviewer led in.
Here’s what McConaughey had to say:
“Stickin’ it to the man, for sure. I mean, it’s an underdog story. This is the guy that nobody bets on. This is like millions of people, if not billions, who get out of bed everyday, and don’t have a ticket to the American Dream. That are going to have to hustle their way in the backdoor, the sidedoor, or come down the chimney, and be an entrepreneur, and make it their own way—by hook or by crook.”
This was only a warm-up.
“So, every single American actor or artsy type who comes over to London dumps on Trump. You all completely hate him. Do you think it’s time maybe Hollywood and the culture elite in America gave this guy a break?” the interviewer asked.
That’s when McConaughey brought the wood, as Independent Journal Review reports.
“Well, they don’t have a choice now. 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.
So anyone, even those who may strongly disagree with his principles or things he’s said and done — and that’s another thing, we’ll see what he does compares to what he has said — no matter how much you even disagreed along the way, it’s time to think about how constructive can you be.”
And here’s the cherry on the top:
“’Cause he’s our president for the next four years, at least, the President of the United States.”
Liberal celebrities should get in line and take notes from Matthew McConaughey on how to properly answer a question about the Trump presidency.
