Matthew McConaughey was arrested in 1999 for a noise complaint. When police arrived, Mr. McConaughey was naked and playing the bongos with some weed. He somehow got out of the whole escape with only a possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia charge and a $50 fine. Magic!
Asked in the latest issue of GQ if he’s still into naked bongo-playing, McConaughey said (via Us),
Of course I still play the congas naked. I just close the windows.
Oh, right, of course.
Love the cover with all the “all right all right”s. He also talked a little about his marriage, but nothing we haven’t heard before.

If there’s one person I trust to tell all when it comes to romance, it’s Matthew McConaughey. Well, it’s not, actually, but let’s go with it for the sake of this story. Matthew married his long time girlfriend Camila Alves last summer after six years of poppin’ out some kids and walking topless on the beach together, and the relationship is still going strong! That might not seem like a big deal, but it’s Hollywood, we’re talking about.
Matthew opened up about the secrets to a lasting love in a new interview with CNN:
“I think there’s a way that you make [love] work, and I think a lot of people fail at it because they continually are expecting maybe something the other person can’t even give you.
“It’s too much to put that pressure on the other person. I think I’ve seen a lot of relationships fail because each person had the other on such a pedestal that the person couldn’t live up to it, and that sort of detonated the relationship.”
That seems like pretty sound advice, Matthew. Be chill, understand that your partner is human and get fulfillment from other places, too. Kewl beans.
Listen, guys – it’s Thursday and it’s a slow ass news day yet again. When someone does something good, you’ll get to stop reading filler stories like this.

Oh man, doesn’t Matthew McConaughey look so, so much better with skin and fat cells? Because seriously, Matthew McConaughey looks so, so much better with skin and fat cells—there’s just no denying it. I’m really relieved that his method acting for ‘The Dallas Buyer’s Club’ has finally come to an end, and now he can start putting weight back on and looking even more normal. Good things happening all around here.
This is Matthew at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend, and not only is he looking healthier, he’s looking more real, too. No more fake gold hairlets growing from atop his skull—no, Matthew went and cut his hair and what was left over? Well, a whole lot of grey, and I have to say: it totally suits him and makes him hotter. Now, boy, if he’d just go on and put on another twenty or thirty or forty pounds, he’d be, like, all sorts of ohmygod-kind of gorgeous.
Love it or leave it: Matthew McConaughey’s return to his roots?

OMG, you guys, LOL! LOL, JK! Matthew McConaughey is totes not fat. Totes McGoats.
It’s just that last month, Matthew McConaughey looked like this:
In that photo, by the way, he was right around 135 pounds, which was his goal – he was shooting a movie about a man with AIDS, remember? – and which was also absolutely bananas. According to Google, Matthew is six feet tall exactly. Six feet, 135 pounds. Oh. My. God.
Since that photo was taken, Matthew’s gained 25 pounds, as you can see in the very first photo. He wants to be back up to 165, so he’s pretty close, and then I imagine he’s going to start working out to get back to his usual buffness.
But hey, what a crazy ride, right?

Just when you thought that Matthew McConaughey couldn’t look any worse, he goes and … well, he looks worse. A lot worse. So “worse,” in fact, that you have to start wondering when this movie’s going to wrap, and if it’s going to be when his character finally kills off its actor. Is that going to be it? Because gosh. Matthew McConaughey just isn’t looking good, friends, and I don’t know how much everyone can really take. Seriously, his one eye looks like it’s going to fall out of its socket, and that’s just never a good look.
Boyfriend looking the way he does right now, I’ve got to ask—would you still hit it?

Because oh my God does he look terrible. My formerly-hot, super-awesome, buff-ass Matthew McConaughey has been reduced to skin and bones. He’s positively skeletal.
Emily told you guys weeks back that Matthew was losing a bunch of weight for a movie role he’s taking on, a film wherein he plays an AIDS patient seeking life-saving drugs from Mexico, and even then he looked kind of bad-ish. Now? He looks dead. Honestly, I can understand the whole “method acting” thing, though I think Shia LaBeouf probably poisoned that term for us wholly, but Matthew needs to take a step back on this and really assess what this role might be doing to his health.
Honestly, what’s he even doing with his hand? What is that? Is that loss of muscle control all together? Is Matthew so emaciated that he’s just out in public, flailing all over the place because he has no pull over his own body anymore?
SEEK HELP, DUDE.
