Matthew McConaughey Signals at Running for Texas Governor

McConaughey Governor Texas Interview Politics

In a recent interview, Academy Award winner Mathew McConaughey said he would consider running for Governor of Texas. The actor discussed other entertainers that have made the transition to politics, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood, Jesse Ventura and even President Donald Trump.

Texas Governor McConaughey?

Mathew McConaughey is making his rounds on the podcast circuit to promote his new memoir, “Greenlight.” In a recent interview on the Hugh Hewitt show he was asked if he would consider running for Governor in his home state of Texas.

He replied, “I wouldn’t be opposed to that. But ultimately it would be up to the people.” McConaughey was born and raised in The Lone Star State. He currently resides in Austin with his family.

“Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now,” McConaughey said during the podcast. “When politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested. You know, I still question how much you can really get done in politics, and I don’t know if politics is my avenue to get what maybe I am best equipped to get done.”

McConaughey has stayed active in his community over the years. He’s been a guest professor at the University of Texas in Austin since 2015 where he teaches a film class.

During the COVID-19 panic earlier this year, the famous actor hit the road with his wife to donate and deliver more than 100,000 masks to rural Texas hospitals. The next governor’s race is in 2022 and current Governor Greg Abbott is up for re-election.

Film star turned politician

McConaughey noted that the political arena has been incredibly divisive lately and he’d like to see things cool down a bit before he gets involved.

“I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people,” he said. “This country’s got to stabilize first before we start to say, ‘OK, here’s how we’re marching out of this together forward.’”

Long Time Actor Anthony Hopkins: ‘Hollywood Actors Are Pretty Stupid, They Only Dish Out Left-Wing Talking Points’

anthony hopkins brad pitt hollywood interview

Actor Anthony Hopkins didn’t pull any punches in a recent interview with Brad Pitt when he said, “Actors are pretty stupid. Especially the ones coming from Hollywood.” The star’s comments come as a surprise to some, since the overwhelming majority of Hollywood’s talent lean far left in their politics.

The 82-year-old Welsh actor has played some iconic rolls in films such as The Silence of The Lambs, Hannibal and Red Dragon. He also starred alongside Brad Pitt in the 1994 western film Legends of The Fall. The two reunited again in 1998 to star together in the movie Meet Joe Black. Hopkins recently sat down with his old co-star Brad Pitt to catch up and chat about movies, acting, politics and more.

Hannibal Lector supports Trump

Sir Anthony Hopkins, who I will forever think of as Dr. Hannibal Lector from The Silence of the Lambs, went on to say “Hollywood wants to push their liberal agenda. I can’t criticize the President, only because I work in Hollywood. The man is doing a great job, and Hollywood should let the people decide.”

Good for him. Far too often people on the Right get bullied and “canceled” for supporting President Trump. In the interview, Hopkins also claimed most actors are ignorant and only parrot Left-wing propaganda.

“When many of Hollywood’s elite speak out, they often don’t fully understand the topic. They only dish out Left-wing talking points. When they are confronted with facts, their stupidity and ignorance are suddenly revealed. This is not a very attractive look.”

Hopkins reportedly sold his Malibu home this summer for a cool $10.5 million. The star purchased the ocean-view estate back in 2001 for just under $4 million. That’s what you call a good investment, my friends.

Hopkins is just one of many residents leaving California this year as it becomes a wasteland of high tax, high crime, virus lockdowns, overregulation, homeless encampments on the sidewalks of cities and forest fires raging throughout the state. It seems the Hollywood lifestyle has lost its charm.

Hollywood is full of lefties

It’s rare to find Hollywood actors who openly support the President. However, there are a few brave souls willing to speak their mind. Actor James Woods is one such patriot. In a recent interview Woods accepted his fate, telling reporters “I don’t expect to work in Hollywood again.”

Woods was an outspoken critic of President Obama and he’s now a passionate Trump supporter. The Left-wing cancel mob has come for his head but he refuses to be silenced. You can find him on Twitter where he works feverishly to enrage the Left.

On the other end of the spectrum you have Left-wing lunatics like Robert De Niro. The Goodfellas legend is arguably one of the greatest actors of all time, so it pains me to see such a tremendously talented guy be infected with stage 5 Trump Derangement Syndrome. I still enjoy his movies, but I’ll pass on his political rants.

After Destroying Every Trump Hating Hollywood Elite, Mark Wahlberg Goes a Step Further

Mark Wahlberg

Actor Mark Wahlberg has taken a big step to aide students and teachers across the United States in the fight against the COVID pandemic.

Wahlberg’s company, Performance Inspired, recently partnered with active lifestyle company LifeToGo, announcing that they were donating 1.3 million disposable masks to teachers and students across the country.

Wahlberg posted a video on his social media which thanked essential workers and teachers for everything that they do for the country, especially during a pandemic.

“This has been a year of change and stress for everybody. But today, I want to thank our essential workers. You guys have kept us healthy, safe and supplied us with all of the necessities. Every day brings a new challenge but we continue to pray for you and your families. And, please know your efforts are much appreciated,” Wahlberg said in the video.

Cities which have already received the donated masks include Bentonville, Arkansas; Boise; Chicago; Cincinnati; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Minneapolis; Portland, Oregon; Quincy, Massachusetts; Rochester, New York; Salisbury, North Carolina; San Antonio; and Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

Wahlberg’s ‘Political’ Outburst

Wahlberg has so far managed to stay out of politics throughout Trump‘s time as president. In late 2016, Wahlberg spoke out against Hollywood’s incessant need to tell the American people how and what to think about politics.

At a press event for his 2016 film Patriots Day, which tells the story of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, the actor was asked about the seemingly endless number of Hollywood elites who bashed President Trump prior to the election.

“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t [talk about politics], Wahlberg told Task & Purpose, a news and analysis website for American service veterans.

“You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway. They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills,” the actor continued.

“A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble… They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family. Me, I’m very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world. And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that,” Wahlberg added.

Despite being an actor, and having been in Hollywood since at least the 1990’s, Wahlberg seems to understand the American people a lot better than most of his colleagues. Whether it involves telling Hollywood to keep their opinions to themselves, or donating masks to schools, Wahlberg seems to be a good example of how famous people should behave.
