Actor Matthew McConaughey Explains Why he Decided Not to Run For Governor of Texas
"At this point in my life with the things, I've got a 13-year-old [son], an 11-year-old [daughter], an eight-year-old [son]. The life I'm living right now, the storytelling I want to keep doing. It's not the category for me at this point in my life," he said.
Although the actor doesn’t plan trying his hand at politics in the near future, he didn’t rule out the option of running for governor at some point.
"Still not ruling out the future?" asked host Jimmy Fallon.
"I’m not until I am. Someone told me that was a very McConaughey answer the other day," the actor replied with his inimitable grin.
Matthew McConaughey and his wife Brazilian-American model Camilla Alves organized a charity concert, which raised $7.7 million for the victims of the storm.
"There are ways to serve ourself and serve others at the same time. And where those two meet - when we're filling our bank account and our souls account at the same time - we're getting the quantity and the quality at the same time," McConaughey said.
