Matthew McConaughey Still Plays The Drums Naked
Matthew McConaughey recently assured his legions of fans that, while his career has taken a turn from rom-coms to Oscar-buzz worthy rolls, he still enjoys the occasional naked drumming.
In a recent interview, McConaughey admitted, “Of course I still play the congas naked. I just close the windows.”
Matthew McConaughey Past Arrest
McConaughey is referring to his 1999 run in with the law, when a neighbor called the police with a noise complaint that led to the police finding McConaughey playing the drums naked. McConaughey was charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Though his charges were droped, McConaughey did pay a fine $50 fine for violating the noise ordinance.
Needless to say, it has become one of McConaughey’s most memorable contributions to pop culture history. Aside from his trademark “Alright, alright, alright” from Dazed and Confused.
'Dallas Buyers Club'
McConaughey is adamant that, while he is constantly evolving, he still remains the same carefree, goofy, loveable and sexy guy audiences fell in love with. Though fans of his romantic comedies, such as How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, will have to alter their McConaughey expectations to go see his newest film Dallas Buyers Club, for which the actor lost over 30 pounds. It’s a serious role, and his performance has been generating award-season speculation.
Dallas Buyers Club is in theaters now.
