Matthew McConaughey hasn’t been in a romantic comedy in over 10 years but would consider reprising a particular role.
The 51-year-old Oscar-winning actor was interviewed by E!’s Daily Pop when he was asked about turning down a $14.5 million paycheque for another rom-com – something that landed him with an Oscar win due to commitment on the Dallas Buyers Club project.
He responded to the question about turning down such a hefty income, “No, I never regretted that. That was during a two-year hiatus I was taking from the romantic comedies that I’d been doing and the action-adventures I had been doing.
I was very clear… look, intellectually, that was a hard one to say ‘no’ to. Just looking at that sheer number-are you kidding me? Wow. But I knew I needed to remain on my sabbatical from the films I had been doing for my own soul. And so, no, I never regretted it. But boy, saying ‘no’ to that really solidified my stance for myself. I was like, okay, I’m not breaking now.”
McConaughey is very much open to the idea of reviving his most popular rom-com film, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Responding to the question of would he be open to actually doing it, “Possibly,” furthering, “I mean, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Day is teed up, you know, teed up for one that you could easily do a sequel. And that was a really good one. As far as romantic comedies go, that was a really good one. And it lasts! People still love that one. I enjoyed that one quite a bit.”
