The “Dallas Buyers Club” star acknowledged the possibility of running for office while being interviewed on “The Balanced Voice” podcast.
McConaughey, 51, was speaking of his current roles as a parent and a University of Texas professor when he wondered aloud what his next move in life would be.

“What is my role, what is my category in my next chapter of life that I’m going into now?” he continues.

“It’s a true consideration,” the Oscar winner said.
