            Personal Quote:

            [on being cast opposite Woody Harrelson] Part of why we're friends and part of why we do what we do the way we do is that we're on each other's frequency. We add on, we affirm each other, and we one-up each other. It can turn into improv and it can go and go into the ether and then some. See more »


            During a guest appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992), Leno surprised him with an old airline training tape he had acted in. McConaughey had no memory of being in the video. See more »
