I believe it is in some sort of leadership role,” McConaughey explained. “I don’t know what that role is. I don’t know my category. We’ve been talking about the ‘why’ of leadership and even, I would say, we need some more good leaders.“And I’m not just talking about me,” he added. “I’m talking about you out there, everyone out there, we need leadership.”Whatever Matthew decides, he wants it to benefit the most amount of people as well as being in the best of his family and him.By George CostantinoCopyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
