Which makes it the perfect time for McConaughey to set a spell with James Lipton and muse about how he went from rom-com eye candy to serious contender with great roles in the past few years including “Mud” and “The Wolf of Wall Street.” No doubt he will continue to extol his motto: just keep livin’.
