Matthew McConaughey

Overview

Cool guy, smooth customer, heartthrob, and all around badass – we know Matthew McConaughey as all of these things. But now we can get a firsthand look inside the celebrity actor's head.

He had his breakout role in Dazed and Confused before moving on to romantic comedies like The Wedding Planner. As he matured so did his roles, such as those in True Detective and Interstellar. As a result, McConaughey has been a mainstay of American cinema since the 1990s. In this unique scrapbook-esque memoir, McConaughey reveals all, beginning with his childhood and eclectic family upbringing and sliding through his acting career with his signature easy-rider attitude.

Less of a straightforward autobiography and more of a manifesto, Greenlights recounts McConaughey's most thrilling moments while sharing his personal insights into what life is really all about.
