From being the chocolate boy in movies like The Wedding Planner and Ghosts Of Girlfriend's Past to being counted in the league of extraordinary actors, this man from Longview, Texas, has come a long way. Early in his career, he might have made some poor choices when it came to choosing film scripts but now it seems he has been blessed with the Midas touch. Nowadays, every movie he does seems to be phenomenal. From Dallas Buyers Club to Mud to Lincoln Lawyer and the spectacular Interstellar , each movie has shown us a different Matthew McConaughey and he has been impeccable in all of them.
