The American actor and film and television producer Matthew McConaughey in a recent interview with the radio program ‘The Hugh Hewitt Show’ has not ruled out that one day he may enter the political arena as governor of Texas.
During the interview, the show’s host, Hugh Hewitt, suggested that McConaughey is perceived by citizens as a politically “center-right” man, which could one day lead him to run for governor in his home state of Texas, and He asked the actor if he will “ever” participate in a political career.
“I do not know. I mean, that wouldn’t be up to me. It would depend on people more than on me, ”responded McConaughey, 51. He then explained that politics currently seems to him “a broken affair.” “And when politics redefines its purpose, it could be much more interested,” he said.
In addition, the winner of the Oscar for best actor in 2014 indicated that he is interested in “supporting personal values to rejoin our social contracts as Americans, as people.” The actor observed that currently both the Democratic and Republican Parties have lost mutual “trust”, which causes “that we do not have confidence in ourselves” and could eventually lead to “anarchy.”
“So I am for the individual, and I think […] To make a collective change, the individual needs to look in the mirror and say how can I be a little better today? How can I correlate this selfish decision that I want to make for myself so that it is also the best decision for the greatest number of people? ”He continued.
In conclusion, McConaughey suggested that, now that the presidential elections in his country are over, Americans have to “stabilize” in order to figure out how they are going to “get out of this together moving forward.”
