Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey is preparing for the release of his new memoir, “Greenlights.”
In the upcoming story, the actor opens “Dazed and Confused” about his family history and reveals in an excerpt mentioned in his People cover story that his beloved father, James Donald McConaughey, died, how he knew he always would; in bed with wife, Kay.
“I got a call from my mother. ‘Your father died.’ My knees bent. I could not believe it. He was my father. No one or nothing could kill him. Except mother. He had always told me and my brothers, ‘Boys, when I go, I will love your mother.’ And that̵
James died in 1992. He and Kay had an affair over and over again and married each other three separate times. Matthew was conceived shortly after their third wedding.
“They were violent at times,” he told People. “As I say in the book, that’s how they communicated. They were divorced twice, married three times, I mean, yes, it was like the Pacific in a storm. ”
Earlier this year, actor “White Boy Rick” tried to hook up with his widowed mother, 88, with Hugh Grant’s widowed father, 91-year-old James Grant.
