McConaughey, the youngest of three boys, son of a gas station owner who ran an oil pipe supply business, and a mother who was a substitute school teacher, was born in Uvalde, Texas; and has Irish ancestry. McConaughey had what he describes as a conservative Christian upbringing.
His late father, James Donald McConaughey, and his mother, Mary Kathlene "Kay" McCabe, divorced and re-married each other several times, in what McConaughey describes as a "loving, but unstable relationship".
McConaughey moved to Longview, Texas in 1980 and graduated from Longview High School in 1988, where he was voted the "Most Handsome".  Matthew lived for a year in Warnervale, NSW, Australia as a Rotary exchange student. He had relative academic success in
high school, and went on to college. He studied film direction at the University of Texas at Austin and was a member of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity, graduating in 1993.
As admitted on "Monday Night Football", he is a die-hard Washington Redskins fan.
McConaughey began his acting career in 1991, appearing in student films and television commercials in Texas before being cast in his first role in Richard Linklater's film Dazed and Confused (1993), after meeting casting director Don Phillips at a bar near the University of Texas at Austin.
After appearing in some additional small parts in Angels in the Outfield, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, Boys on the Side, and the television series Unsolved Mysteries, McConaughey's big break came as the lawyer "Jake Brigance" in the 1996 film A Time to Kill, based on the
John Grisham novel of the same name. In 1997, McConaughey won an MTV Movie Award for best breakthrough performance for the role. He has also twice been nominated for a Blockbuster Entertainment Award.
Christian Bale as Quinn and Matthew McConaughey as Van Zan in Reign of Fire (2002).McConaughey gained renown and was cast in leading roles in many more movies: Contact, Amistad, The Newton Boys, Edtv, and U-571. By the early 2000s, he was frequently cast in romantic comedies,
including The Wedding Planner and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, both of which were successful at the box office. During this period, he appeared as a firefighter in the low-budget film Tiptoes, opposite Kate Beckinsale, in Two For The Money as a protege to Al Pacino's gambling mogul, and
in Frailty, cast against type as a serial killer, opposite Bill Paxton.
McConaughey starred in the feature film Sahara (budgeted at $130 million), along with Steve Zahn and Penélope Cruz. Prior to the release of the movie, he promoted it by repeating some trips he took in the late 1990s, including sailing down the Amazon River and trekking to Mali. In 2005,
People magazine named him their "Sexiest Man Alive". In 2006, he co-starred with Sarah Jessica Parker in the romantic comedy Failure to Launch, which was reasonably successful at the box office.
McConaughey also provided voice work for an ad campaign of the Peace Corps in late 2006.
On October 25, 1999, McConaughey was arrested at his home in Austin, Texas; the charges included possession of marijuana and resisting arrest. The police were responding at 2:37 a.m. to a disturbance call after a neighbor complained of loud music from the house next-door. They arrived
to "easily hear very loud music," bongo drum playing and clapping coming from McConaughey's residence. According to official police reports, McConaughey was found dancing around naked and playing bongo drums with a friend, actor Cole Hauser, a co-actor in Dazed and Confused (1993).
The drug charges were dropped, but McConaughey pled guilty for violating the city's noise ordinance and paid a USD $50 fine.
McConaughey seems to have a concern for the humane treatment of animals as well as a knack for getting himself involved in unusual situations with them. In 2006 in Sherman Oaks, California, he reportedly snatched a cat away from two youths who had doused the animal in hairspray and
were attempting to light it on fire . Earlier, in 2005, the actor is alleged to have frightened away a coyote that was threatening a mother and her child in a Los Angeles park . An Oprah Winfrey episode from that same year also showed McConaughey participating in a rescue of various pets,
including cats, dogs and hamsters, that were stranded after the flooding of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina .

since 2004, following Cruz's break-up with Tom Cruise. Having split with Cruz in April of 2006, McConaughey is currently enjoying single life with his friends, and has been seen with a number of different women at clubs around the United States. The very fit McConaughey spent much of the
summer of 2006 enjoying healthy hobbies such as running, surfing, swimming, and biking, as documented frequently by the paparazzi.
McConaughey's personal life is the subject of many media reports. In July 2006, some of his real-life foibles were documented via "McConaughey's Lost Weekend.", a blog with photographs of a "three-day bender in Costa Rica." In the November 2006 issue of Details magazine, McConaughey
flippantly responded to growing rumors that he and cyclist Lance Armstrong were involved in a gay relationship with the comment, "We tried it. Wasn't for us."  McConaughey has been hailed as one of the industry's hottest young leading men, inspiring comparisons to actor Paul Newman and
he was named People Magazine's "the Sexiest Man Alive" for 2005. "Extra, NBC" reported in 2006 that McConaughey admits to wearing no underwear, and says he doesn't use cologne or deodorant, because he doesn't want to smell like someone else. He says, "People say I ought to start
wearing it." 
Matthew's production company, j.k. livin, is currently in development on projects with Warner Bros., Universal, Paramount and Imagine Entertainment. He can currently be seen in the football drama We Are Marshall.
On December 19th, 2006, eBay's homepage featured Matthew's picture and named an auction of autographed items he donated to raise money for charity as the "It" of the day. 
He is supposedly in line to star as Thomas Magnum in the 2008 movie Magnum, P.I.. 
11/2012 Mattew McConaughey has been so dedicated to a recent role
that he lost 40 pounds, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
McConaughey stars in The Dallas Buyer’s Club, where he portrays real-
life AIDS victim Ron Woodroof. Matthew in order to look the part, went
on a starvation diet that changed his normally buff frame into an
emaciated shell of himself. Maybe he did the 50 day starvation diet..
click here.Listen he wasn't fat to begin with so to get to this frame he
had to really kinda starve to get this look. McConaughey has made
great personal sacrifices for The Dallas Buyer’s Club, but it looks to be
worth the while. The movie has been generating buzz in the film world
and has even brought Jared Leto back from a hiatus away from acting.
Leto, who hasn’t appeared in a movie since 2007, was spotted on set as
a crossdresser, The Huffington Post reported. And I am super excited
about that.. I love me so Jared.. click here for more photos.
Matthew Said he wants a cheeseburger when this is all done..and
more.. looks like he wants to binge like crazy when it is finished due to
depriving himself for so long.. But at least he is aware of organ
shrinkage when you get down that low...
McConaughey told Hitfix.com:
“I will have some 70 percent beef, 30 percent fat ground beef, maybe a half-pound cheeseburger with another three types of cheese. I’ll prepare it all and
I’ll make sure that it takes three hours just to prepare.
“I’m going to have buns with butter on both sides, toasted and grilled. I’m going to melt the cheese on the top bun, Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. I want
kosher dill pickles sliced nice and thin, diced white onions, slightly grilled until they get almost hard, and some thin jalapeno slices.
“Your organs shrink (and) my stomach has shrunk as well. So, as much as I can’t wait to have that cheeseburger on the day (shooting ends), it’ll probably
be damn hard to eat the whole thing.”
Dallas Buyer’s Club is also generating Oscar Best Actor buzz for Matthew McConaughey, Black Book Magazine reported, so the actor can definitely
reward himself with a cheeseburger when it’s done shooting.
“Getting past 170 was really hard, but then once you get 167, the next seven come off easy. Getting past 160, really hard, but then you fly down to 150,”
Matthew McConaughey explained.
He added, “Getting past 150 was really hard and then, Bam! Got down to 143 and that’s where I want to be. So, once you get past the plateau, your body
seems to understand, ‘OK, this is where we’re leaving now, this is where we are,’ and so the energy rises.”
The Dallas Buyers Club, which also stars Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto, is expected to arrive in theaters sometime next year.
Of course, the Magic Mike co-star isn’t the only actor who has lost a dramatic amount of weight for a movie role. Christian Bale lost dozens of pounds to
portray Trevor Reznik in Brad Anderson’s 2004 thriller The Machinist. click here for more photos of Christian Bale.
