Matthew McConaughey’s birthplace is in Uvalde, Texas, America. His birthdate is November 4, 1969.

Mary Kathleen (née McCabe), his mother, is a published author and a former kindergarten teacher. His father, James Donald “Jim” McConaughey, owned and operated an oil pipe supply company.

McConaughey’s ancestors come from England, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, and Sweden, with some of his Irish ancestors hailing from the Cavan/Monaghan region. 

He is a distant relative of Confederate brigadier general Dandridge McRae.

McConaughey relocated to Longview, Texas, in 1980 and graduated from Longview High School. He traveled to Australia in 1988, expecting to attend a high school in Sydney. 

Instead, he spent a year in Warnervale, New South Wales, where he attended Gorokan High School (as a Rotary Youth Exchange student) and worked as an attorney’s assistant and an ANZ bank teller.

He went to the University of Texas in Austin and was a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. He joined in the fall of 1989 and got his bachelor of science degree in radio-television-film in the spring of 1993.

How Did Matthew McConaughey Start His Career?

McConaughey began his acting career by appearing in TV advertisements while still in college. 

His first major role was in “Dazed and Confused,” which he landed after meeting casting director Don Phillips one night as a student in an Austin bar.

Both McConaughey and the film received excellent reviews and did well at the box office. 

Over the rest of the ’90s, he landed a number of other parts in “Angels in the Outfield” and “A Time to Kill,” which made over $100 million in the US alone, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation,” and “Contact.”

Most of these films far exceeded box-office forecasts, increasing his worth as an actor. 

While many of his films were successful, including “The Wedding Planner” and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” he became aware that he had established a typecast.

In order to be more selective, he began to decline offers to star in different projects in 2011. He was finally able to get fresh assignments after spending two years with limited options and offers. 

Beginning in 2013, McConaughey starred in a string of critically acclaimed films. “Dallas Buyers Club,” for which he received an Oscar, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” and “Interstellar” are among them. 

Lincoln Motor Company signed a multi-year advertising campaign with McConaughey in August 2014. Immediately after the commercials appeared in September 2014, the overall sales for Lincoln jumped by 25% a month later. 

The McConaughey commercial series lasted several years longer, during which he also sponsored the MKZ car, MKX and Nautilus crossovers, and Aviator SUVs.

McConaughey is also making his mark on the spirits industry. He joined Wild Turkey Bourbon as Design Director in 2016 and collaborated with them to produce his own version of their traditional spirit.
