Matthew McConaughey appeared on “The View” yesterday to promote his new book Just Because, fielding a bunch of questions. Joy Behar appeared to hit a nerve with the actor during a discussion about his potential run for office in his home state of Texas. "As far as office, I will always measure what category I can be most useful," he said. Referencing McConaughey's activism following the deadly 2022 school shooting in his hometown of Uvalde, Behar asked, "Do you think you can get elected in Texas, being anti-gun?" The actor paused for a moment and repeated the question to himself before raising his finger in Behar's face. "One thing about me and politics is, to give you a direct statement right there is me playing a game I'm not interested in playing," he replied. Behar urged him not to say anything if he didn't want to. When the show returned from a commercial break for a segment that revealed a wax figure made in McConaughey's likeness, cohost Sunny Hostin addressed the issue. "I did want to say that I've done a lot of research in terms of your advocacy, and I don't know that you're anti-gun, I think you're pro-gun responsibility and legislation," Hostin said. The panelists then proceeded to unveil the wax figure.
