It’s all going to be ‘Alright, Alright, Alright’

Matthew McConaugheys career has been a slow buildup throughout his life and he began to type-cast himself by starring in a number of romantic comedy roles in the mid 2000s. Recently, McConaughey has been demonstrating the extent of his acting abilities by taking his career on a turn to the dramatic. He has turned down a number of blockbuster roles in favor of smaller, independent films that allow him to rebrand himself as a serious actor.

McConaughey took to Instagram to share a video message with the caption “every red light turns green.”

The actor starts his message asking viewers to take care of themself and those around them, not to get paranoid in these uncertain times.

“Let’s do our due diligence to take the precautions we need to, to take care of ourselves and those of us around us," McConaughey said. "Right now more than ever before, we’re all more dependant on each other than we ever have been.”

McConaughey went on to say we’re all in this together, fighting the same enemy.

“We have an enemy in coronavirus that is faceless, that is race-less, sexless, non-denominational and bi-partisan,” McConaughy said. “And it’s an enemy we all agree we want to beat. We want to beat 'em and we’re gonna beat 'em.”

In the video, the Texas-native recognized the negative outcomes of the global pandemic, such as the state of economy and uncertainty of life returning to normal.
