Last month it was reported the Oscar-winning actor will be writing a book based on a diary he kept for 35 years.
‘This is not a traditional memoir, or an advice book, but rather a playbook based on adventures in my life,’ McConaughey, 50, said in a statement about Greenlights, which comes out October 20.
‘Adventures that have been significant, enlightening, and funny, sometimes because they were meant to be but mostly because they didn’t try to be,’ he said.
Matthew used to date Sandra Bullock after they worked together on his breakout film A Time To Kill and Penelope Cruz, whom he helped cast in the adventure film Sahara.

‘He found not only stories, questions, truths, and affirmations, but also a reliable theme,’ Crown announced.

This comes after McConaughey said he keeps his late father’s ‘spirit alive’ by talking to him.
The versatile actor explained his Just Keep Livin’ mantra stemmed from the way he responded to his dad’s death and made it his outlook on life as he’s found there is nothing that can’t be made ‘better’ by the slogan, which is also the name of his foundation.

‘In 1992, I was five days into shooting Dazed and Confused’and I got a phone call that my father had passed on,’ he told Town & Country.
‘I drove to Houston to be with my family. I was with them for five days, and they told me to get back to work. The first night back, I was walking around and it hit me that my father was no longer here, but I could still keep his spirit alive if I talked aloud to him.’
He added, ‘So, 28 years later, I’ve been unable to find anything that isn’t better if you take that mantra and slap it on it.
