Matthew McConaughey: I Still Play Congas Naked

Matt Dekneef

Matthew McConaughey still has a sense of humor about that arrest over a simple noise complaint which involved Austin, Texas cops finding the actor nude and playing bongo drums.

The 44-year-old actor, who is one of GQ magazine’s “Men of the Year” cover stars, admitted that he hasn’t changed his ways entirely.

“Of course I still play the congas naked,” Matthew confessed. “I just close the windows.”

In the issue on stands now, Matthew, whose role in Dallas Buyers Club is already generating a ton of Oscar buzz for himself and his co-star Jared Leto, said he feels like he’s at a critical, but comfortable moment in his life right now.

“I’m feeling very fulfilled,” he said, explaining it in the most Matthew McConaughey way ever: “I’m in the clay in my career.”

“And I’m in the clay in my personal life,” he added. “I’m turned on. I’m interested in things.”
