Matthew McConaughey has said he’d consider swapping the silver screen for politics if that’s what the people of Texas want.
The Oscar winner talked about how politics ‘seems to be be broken’ and was asked if he’d consider running for governor of Texas.
He said on Tuesday on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” :
“I don’t know. I mean, that wouldn’t be up to me. It would be up to the people more than it would me,”
“I would say this: Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now. And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested,”
“I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people again,”
“That leads to us not trust in ourselves, which if that becomes epidemic, then we’ve got anarchy. I’m all for the individual, and I think it’s for — to make collective change that the individual needs to look in the mirror and say, ‘How can I be a little bit better today?'”
Could it be McConaughey 2022?
