“When people come to my page, I want them to see me,” is the first thing the actor says in his first video. He continues with, “This is my first venture into sharing myself and my views with the world, and I’m a little bit nervous about it because quite frankly, I know I want to have a monologue, I’m not sure I want to have the dialogue,” he laughs. “But I’ve learned that you gotta have the dialogue to have the monologue, just as you have a monologue to have a dialogue.” Got all that?

McConaughey also says that he’s looking forward to sharing who he is with the world. “I’m looking forward to seeing if who I am translates. If what I want to share translates. If it tickles your funny bone, if it makes you think a second, if it makes your heart swell up a little bit, if it makes you take a quiet moment for a walk… Let’s have some fun with it though.”

He lastly tells fans to stay positive. “Let’s keep the high eye, not the low eye. High eye.”

Matthew received many welcomes from his celebrity friends, including Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Chastain. He also received love from Lincoln and the University of Texas Longhorns.
