Could a run for office be in the actor’s future? McConaughey was interviewed on The Balanced Voice podcast where he hinted he might run for governor of Texas.
“It’s a true consideration,” he told host Rania Mankarious when she asked about a potential run for office. McConaughey has said before he thinks the political system is broken. “Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now. And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested,” McConaughey said a few months ago.
He told Steven Colbert he had no plans at that time to get into politics, but seems to have changed his tune.
“I have no plans to do that right now,” he said on Colbert. “Right now? No. I don’t get politics. As I move forward in life, yes, am I going to consider leadership roles where I can be most useful? I’d love to. I’m doing that regardless. That’s where I sit right now.”
