The 11 Best Matthew McConaughey Performances: From ‘Dazed and Confused’ to ‘The Beach Bum’

The 11 Best Matthew McConaughey Performances: From ‘Dazed and Confused’ to ‘The Beach Bum’
Matthew McConaughey is surprisingly flexible for such an inimitable actor; he can play anybody, and yet there’s no one else quite like him. He’s been a Hollywood leading man for more than 20 years — starring in adventure movies, sci-fi epics, stripper masterpieces, a smattering of mostly regrettable rom-coms, and more — but he’s never really settled into a type. He can do it all, but the easygoing Austin native is at his best when it seems like he’s just being himself. In an industry that swallows actors whole and spits them out on the regular, McConaughey has survived by embracing a “just keep livin’” philosophy that makes you feel like he’s just happy to be here. And if his shaggy, self-possessed, and almost supernaturally high portrayal of Moondog in “The Beach Bum” feels like McConaughey’s defining performance, that’s because it barely seems like he’s acting at all.

Spotlight On The Stars: Matthew McConaughey

For the latest spotlight piece, I wanted to return to a former subject take another look at one of the most unusual A-listers that Hollywood has to offer. It’s none other than Matthew McConaughey, a unique star in the business. Up until recently known as a talented but easygoing movie star, he’s since undergone a career transformation that’s not just made him one of the most sought after actors around, but one of the most acclaimed as well. He’s entered the second phase of his career and could reach the stratosphere before long. McConaughey already has an Academy Award under his belt, and it’s not folly to think that Oscar could cite him again real soon. McConaughey got his start by stealing his scenes in Dazed and Confused. In fact, that first theatrical role gave him some instantly quotable dialogue and really established him as

Most of Emma Stone's Net Worth Came From This 1 Major Project
Over the course of the past decade, Emma Stone has gone from everyone's favorite girl-next-door comedienne to one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. It probably comes as no surprise, then, that Stone's 2019 net worth has increased significantly since she first began appearing on our screens. But just how much has her career earned her so far? You might be surprised at the amount - and what her highest-paid project has been.

According to reports, Stone's net worth currently sits at approximately $28 million. Her earnings began with smaller roles in the mid-2000s before she landed her first major film role in the comedy Superbad. Her next several roles were in similarly quirky comedies: The House Bunny, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, and Zombieland - none of which had high budgets or massive box office earnings.

Stone starred in a hit in 2010, with the razor-sharp teen comedy Easy A, which earned

Hulu Ordering ‘Looking For Alaska’ Limited Series From Josh Schwartz Based On John Green’s Novel From Paramount TV
Exclusive: Josh Schwartz’s 13-year journey to bring to the screen John Green’s best-selling novel Looking For Alaska has come to a successful conclusion. Hulu is finalizing a deal for an eight-episode limited series from Paramount Television and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire.

Schwartz wrote the pilot for the project, which garnered interest from multiple buyers, and will serve as executive producer and showrunner. Savage executive produces with Green, Jessica Tuchinsky, Mark Waters and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill. Fake Empire exec Lis Rowinski will co-executive produce.

Looking for Alaska thrusts us into the perspective of Miles “Pudge” Halter who is done with his safe life at home.

He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School,

A Bad Moms Christmas movie review: cruel coal in the stocking

MaryAnn’s quick take… This rushed sequel is an insult to its progenitor movie. A cheap knockoff that doesn’t understand what made Bad Moms so smart, funny, and feminist-wise. I’m “biast” (pro): love the first movie

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer looked awful

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a sequel throw its progenitor movie under a bus the way that A Bad Moms Christmas does. If I hadn’t just rewatched Bad Moms, I would have been doubting what I remembered as a very positive reaction to it last year as I sat through this barrage of nasty, cruel, antiwoman, even antimom garbage. But no: as I had just reminded myself, Bad Moms truly is a terrifically smart and wise movie — and also a very funny one — about the impossible job that modern

Cannes Update: New Films with Ashley Judd and Maggie Q on the Way

Ashley Judd in “Come Early Morning

Films toplined by Ashley Judd and Maggie Q are the latest projects seeking distribution deals at the Cannes Film Market. According to ScreenDaily, Red Sea Media has begun talks with international buyers for Judd-starrer “Trafficked,” and the U.S. rights to Q-led “Slumber” have been obtained by Vertical Entertainment.

Directed by Will Wallace (“Red Wing”), “Trafficked” centers on three young women from the U.S., Nigeria, and India trying to escape a brothel. Elisabeth Röhm (“Jane the Virgin”), Anne Archer (“Ghosts of Girlfriends Past”), and Sean Patrick Flanery (“Dexter”) co-star in the film.

“This is a poignant film,” Red Sea founder Roman Kopelevich emphasized. “It’s important, with the world sex trade impacting girls from remote villages to the doorsteps of our neighborhoods. Anyone with a daughter or a sister should be concerned with this epidemic.”

Judd is an outspoken advocate for women’s rights around the world. She is also a survivor of sexual assault and severe online harassment. “The amount of gender violence that I experience is absolutely extraordinary,” Judd told “The Today Show” in 2015. The “Divergent” franchise actress serves as a Global Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund, an organization striving for better healthcare for all women. You can next catch Judd in the “Twin Peaks” revival, which hits Showtime May 21.

Vertical Entertainment is planning a late-2017 theatrical release for “Slumber.” The supernatural thriller sees Q playing Alice, “a rationally minded sleep doctor, who is forced to abandon scientific reason and accept a family is being terrorized by a parasitic demon which paralyzes victims as they sleep,” ScreenDaily summarizes.

First-time feature director Jonathan Hopkins helmed “Slumber” and wrote the script with Richard Hobley.

Q currently plays Hannah Wells on ABC’s political dystopian thriller “Designated Survivor.” She portrayed the titular character on The CW’s “Nikita” from 2010 to 2013. Q’s next film is “The Brits Are Coming,” a jewel heist comedy that’s currently in post-production.

Cannes Update: New Films with Ashley Judd and Maggie Q on the Way was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

The unmade films of Kevin Smith

Rob Leane Feb 13, 2017

Superman Lives, The Green Hornet and sadly now Clerks III: here’s a rundown of the Kevin Smith films we’ll probably never see...

Kevin Smith has always had to fight to get his films off the ground: he started his filmmaking career by maxing out multiple credit cards to self-finance Clerks, and more recently, legend has it, it was only Johnny Depp’s decision to come on board as a wacky supporting character that allowed Smith to secure financing for his walrus-centric horror flick Tusk.

Smith has, across his career, been offered several barmy jobs (he rejected a chance to pen Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian back in the 90s) and he’s also signed up for a lot of projects that never got past the script phase.

The latter camp of could’ve-beens is what we’re talking about today, following that news that Clerks III

Matthew McConaughey on His Career After Quitting Rom-Coms: ‘My Agent Did a Good Job Saying No’

Matthew McConaughey on His Career After Quitting Rom-Coms: ‘My Agent Did a Good Job Saying No’
Matthew McConaughey earned countless fans for his iconic first role in the comedy Dazed and Confused and later won the hearts of rom-com fans with movies like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. But he wasn’t satisfied.

In an interview with The Guardian, the 47-year-old Oscar-winning actor opened up about his decision to take on more serious roles. And after the release of Ghosts of Girlfriends Past in 2009 — and getting the “okay” from wife Camila Alves, he was ready to start fresh.

“My agent did a good job saying no, no, no,” he said of turning down other rom-com scripts.

'A Bad Moms Christmas' Is Coming in 2017

The raunchy comedy The Hangover burst out as an early summer box office hit back in 2009, earning special plaudits for Bradley Cooper as a leading man. The secret ingredient, however, was the original screenplay by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who were also responsible for Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, a smaller success released the month before The Hangover. The writing duo soon made their directorial debut with 21 & Over, another foul-mouthed comedy that starred Miles Teller and somewhat resembled The Hangover in its raunchy antics. They next made plans to direct their sophomore effort, based on another original screenplay. Described as a raunchy "female-driven" comedy, the script attracted Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow as star and producer, respectively. Just a...

‘Bad Santa 2’ review: “A familiar frolic with an old friend”

Bad Santa 2 review: Billy Bob Thornton returns as ‘thief in Santa’s clothing’, Willie. But is it as funny as the first time?

Bad Santa 2 review, Kat Hughes.

2003 was when we were first introduced to the foul-mouthed, incontinent drunk, Santa impersonator and crook, Willie. Now thirteen years later we re-join Willie as he’s pulled back into the Christmas crime ring to do one last job.

In this day and age it’s almost unheard of for it to take more than ten years to make a follow up to a successful film, and yet here we are. The sequel has a lot to live up to as the first Bad Santa is brilliant. It was the perfect remedy to all the sweetness usually contained in a festive film. There’s a few sweet moments buried deep within, but overall it’s crass, heavily politically incorrect and laugh

What’s not to love about Matthew McConaughey? In addition to proving to be an immensely talented actor, he seems like the most chill guy in the business. He’s been a fan favourite for over two decades now, making us laugh, cry, and adopt the slogan “Alright, alright, alright” into everyday conversations.

Today is his 47th birthday, and so there's no better time to look at some of our favourite of his performances. Not to mention that we'll be seeing him again twice over this Christmas, as a koala hosting a singing competition in the animated Sing, and as a man in search for gold in, you guessed it, Gold.

Gold is likely yet another entry in McConaughey’s list of recent films that typically go on to become critical and awards darlings (see Mud, Dallas Buyer’s Club,

Matthew McConaughey On How He Left His Rom-Com Days in the Dust: ‘All of the Sudden, I Understood’

Matthew McConaughey On How He Left His Rom-Com Days in the Dust: ‘All of the Sudden, I Understood’
The McConaissance is real — and was carefully orchestrated by the man himself.

In the November issue of Esquire, Matthew McConaughey gets real about leaving his tried-and-true role as a rom-com leading man in the past for more serious roles like the True Detective series and The Dallas Buyers Club — which earned him an Oscar.

After filming 2008’s Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, McConaughey says, “All of a sudden. I understood, whoa, that’s become my brand.”

It was then that he made a “conscious decision” to “unbrand,” he tells the magazine.

In case you hadn't heard, the McConaissance is officially over

In case you hadn't heard, the McConaissance is officially over
Matthew McConaughey's movie career hit the skids for the better part of the 2000s, with the mega-star taking on roles in a series of generic (albeit occasionally financially successful) rom-coms (Fool's Gold, Failure to Launch, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past), a quickly-forgotten Al Pacino sports-gambling drama (Two for the Money), a notorious big-budget flop (Sahara) and one totally inexplicable dud, the bizarre passion project that was Surfer, Dude. After spending the late '90s as one of Hollywood's premiere male sex symbols, America's favorite Texas golden boy hardly seemed to be trying anymore, and audiences responded in kind. Then he came back! The McConaissance, as it came to be known, arrived early the following decade, when the actor began taking roles in actual good movies: The Lincoln Lawyer, Magic Mike, Killer Joe, Mud. Then came True Detective and his Oscar-winning turn in Dallas Buyers Club, the twin jewels in his comeback crown.
