While we’ve been practicing social distancing from people we’re becoming closer than ever with our televisions and we couldn’t help but notice the amount of Matthew McConaughey movies that are currently streaming. It’s no secret that the ATXGossip team is a big fan of Mr. Texas, so we thought we’d share our love by sharing some of our favorite movies.

Welcome Back to Matthew McConaughey Mondays!

Mud (2012)

Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Paulson, Sam Shepard and Michael Shannon

Synopsis: While exploring a Mississippi River island, Arkansas boys Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) encounter Mud (Matthew McConaughey), a fugitive who needs their help. Though Mud killed a man in Texas and has bounty hunters on his trail, he is most concerned about reuniting with Juniper (Reese Witherspoon), the love of his life. Ellis, who is suffering the pangs of his first crush, agrees to help Mud. He and Neckbone do all they can to protect Mud and help him reunite with Juniper. 


Streaming: Netflix (free with membership) and Amazon Prime Video (Rent for $3.99).

McConaughey Takes! 

A while back McConaughey launched “McConaughey Takes” on his Instagram feed. In each clip, he talks about his movies and gives us a little behind the scenes about them. This week he covers Mud. He states that Mud is his favorite film he’s ever done because it reminds him of his father and growing up in Texas. Speaking of Texas, the film was written and directed by honorary Austenite, Jeff Nichols. Who once stated that he moved to Austin before he made his first film and he plans on living there for the rest of his life. Find out what else McConaughey had to say about Mud in the video below.
