Matthew McConaughey is Releasing His First Memoir ‘Greenlights’
Matthew McConaughey is coming out with a memoir!
The Oscar-winning actor announced the news on social media yesterday, explaining that Greenlights is inspired by personal writings he’s penned throughout his life.
“So, ever since I learned to write, I’ve been keeping a journal, writing down anything that turned me on, turned me off, made me laugh, made me cry, made me question, or kept me up at night,” he said in an Instagram video.
“Two years ago, I worked up the courage to take all of those journals off into solitary confinement just to see what the hell I had. And I returned with a book,” he added, showing off the copy of the book.
“This is my sights and seens, nices and means, successes and failures,” he said of his memoir. “Stories, people, places, prayers, prescribes, and a whole lot of bumper stickers.”
He continued: “It’s called Greenlights because its a story about how I have, and we all can catch more of them in this life we’re living. We don’t like the red and yellow lights because they take up our time, right? But when we realize that they all eventually turn green, that’s when they reveal their rhyme. That’s when life’s a poem and we start getting what we want and what we need. I call that the honey hole, a little place called heaven on Earth.”
We love the title! Will you be reading the book?
