McConaughey will be breaking out of the romantic comedy roles to star in four films over the next six months, including Magic Mike, Killer Joe, Mud, and The Paperboy, co-starring Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron.

The following are some of the highlights from the interview:

On romantic comedies and moving away from them:
“On those romantic comedies, I’m going ‘How do I keep the balls on the dude?’ They’ve written it so you have to come back emasculated and go, ‘I’ve been no one without you. I was lost for all my life but now I found you—take me back.’ And my deal was always, ‘What ******* chick wants that guy?’ C’mon, man, the guy’s gotta come back with dignity.”
Channing Tatum on finding out that Mcconaughey signed on to Magic Mike:
“I said, ‘If McConaughey’s down, we gotta have him playing the bongos at one point, and we gotta get him naked.”
On the start of his career, following Dazed and Confused:
“I was 21. I walked on the beach every morning, didn’t worry about money, didn’t worry about a job, watered my plants, drank my beer, suntanned in my cutoffs and the same T-shirt for days- it was great!”
