Matthew McConaughey gave the most legendary interview recently while promoting his new film, “Gold.”
When asked if this film was a depiction of “Trump’s America,” McConaughey gave the best response possible.
Check it out (via IJR):
“Stickin’ it to the man, for sure,” McConaughey said. “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.”
The interviewer went on to ask if maybe it’s time for Hollywood elite to accept Trump’s presidency.
This is where it gets really good:
“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.”
