You’re probably wondering: Does Matthew McConaughey smoke weed? He played a stoner surfer type at the start of his career but does he puff off the screen as well? We wonder if he had to do any method acting for his role as a cannabis smoker. Check out what we found after researching Matthew McConaughey’s weed habits.
Who Is Matthew McConaughey?
Since then he’s done work as a director, producer, writer, voice actor and more. He got his start acting in commercials, including one for the Austin, Texas daily newspaper.
After a few small movie roles, he made his way onto the television series “Unsolved Mysteries” as a male lead. During the 2000’s he was mostly featured in romantic comedies.
After being fed up with getting typecast in rom-com roles he sought more dramatic work which led to his eventual Oscar win. McConaughey has been married to Brazilian model Camila Alves since 2006.
Puff Or Pass?
In the movie “Dazed and Confused,” he played a laid-back chill surfer dude whose only concerns were getting chicks and smoking weed. The way he played the part you’d think he’s either smoked weed or been around people that smoke a lot of it.
It looks like McConaughey is steering back to his roots with his new role in the movie “The Beach Bum.” The film is a stoner comedy by the maker of “Spring Breakers.”
So he’s definitely cool with playing roles that involve him smoking weed. But does Matthew McConaughey smoke weed or is that a trait reserved for his characters?
In 1999, Matthew McConaughey was found playing the bongos naked and arrested for possession of marijuana. He spoke about the event again in 2016.
“What’s wrong with beating on your drums in your birthday suit?” the 47-year-old actor told Playboy. “I have no regrets about the way I got there.”
He even provided advice for people to avoid ending up in the same situation: “Shut the window that has the beautiful scent of jasmine blowing in because it’s two in the morning and you might wake a neighbor.”
Sounds like a pretty chill dude to us. How many people that don’t smoke weed own bongo drums? We couldn’t imagine that night unfolding without the assistance of some type of mind-altering substance.
Take a look at his mug shot. We don’t know anyone that’s been that happy while under arrest. The actor has never denied smoking cannabis and he seems to appear in movies and series that stoners love like “East Bound and Down” or “Tropic Thunder.”
Final Hit: Does Matthew McConaughey Smoke Weed?
So, does Matthew McConaughey smoke weed? We don’t know if he’s still smoking today but he told GQ magazine “of course I still play the congas naked. I just close the windows.”
It sounded like a joke but could it be his low-key way of saying that he still smokes weed? Whether he’s smoking bowls or playing the drums naked we just hope Matthew is doing what makes him happy.
