Is Matthew McConaughey preparing to run for office? One tabloid reports that he may do so with his wife’s blessing. Gossip Cop investigates.
‘Matthew’s ‘Gut Check’ On Run For Governor’
The National Enquirer claims “the clock’s ticking on Matthew McConaughey’s dream of becoming governor of Texas.” He has until the end of the summer to throw his hat in the ring, and sources say his wife, Camila Alves, is urging him to do it The Academy Award winner “is doing last-minute legwork before delivering his verdict.”
An insider says, “Matthew just needs to personally turn the corner where he can see a path to winning this thing.” He’s beloved in Texas, “but he’s going to have to spend a little money researching if they’d actually vote for him.” Alves “is ready for the crazy year that would come with a wholehearted run for the highest elected office in their home state.”
While he’s still on the fence, McConaughey has “lined up donors to help make it happen.” An insider said he “would run as an Independent so he can draw support from both parties. The article concludes by saying “behind that aw-shucks demeanor, there’s a strong man who’s able to focus on what needs to get done.”

We busted its claim that the Dallas Buyers Club star was quitting acting to work on Wall Street. It also claimed he was going to be the , but he’s still a wildly successful actor, just as he’s been for decades.
A few years ago, this tabloid claimed McConaughey’s partying was out of control, but an individual close to McConaughey told us “nothing could be further from the truth.” This tabloid is simply not a reliable source for information about the Fool’s Gold star, so you shouldn’t trust this report.
