Matthew McConaughey has kept a diary for thirty-five of his fifty years: notes about successes and failures, joys and sorrows, things that made him marvel, and things that made him laugh out loud. Recently, he worked up the courage to sit down with those diaries. So he bought a one-way ticket to the desert and took up solitary confinement to read through them.
McConaughey discovered not only stories, questions, truths, and affirmations, but also a reliable theme: an approach to living that he calls ‘catching greenlights’.
FANE is proud to present this exclusive event with the Academy Award-winning actor, philanthropist, professor, and self-proclaimed pickle expert to celebrate the publication of Greenlights. This is neither a traditional memoir, nor an advice book, but rather a playbook based on adventures in McConaughey’s life: an album and a record of what he has seen and learned along the way – ‘my sights and seens, felts and figured outs, cools and shamefuls.’
In conversation with Idris Elba, and with his familiar candour, humour, and profound insight and humility, McConaughey will share anecdotes, lessons, and damn good yarns from his life: from growing up as an adventurous kid in a tough-love Texas home of rule breakers, to revelatory journeys to Australia, Peru, and Mali, to his early days in Hollywood and meteoric rise to fame.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend an evening with one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors, as he explores his guide to success and satisfaction through life’s lessons learned the hard way.
