  • Matthew McConaughey Eyes New Thriller

    27 GEN 2024 · Matthew McConaughey looks to be eyeing a role in "The Lost Bus" with Paul Greengrass at the Helm Hold onto your hats, thriller fans! Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey may be nearing his next big-screen adventure, and it looks like a heart-pounding ride is in store. Deadline reports that McConaughey is in talks to star in "The Lost Bus," a film based on the harrowing 2018 Camp Fire, California's deadliest wildfire. Paul Greengrass, known for his pulse-racing direction of "Captain Phillips" and "Green Zone," is reportedly in negotiations to take the helm, while Apple Original Films is eyeing distribution. Brad Ingelsby, renowned for his work on "Mare of Easttown," adapted the script from Lizzie Johnson's book "Paradise: One Town's Struggle to Survive an American Wildfire." "The Lost Bus" tells the true story of heroic bus driver Kevin McKay and school teacher Mary Ludwig, who bravely navigated a school bus full of children through the blazing inferno as Paradise succumbed to the fire's wrath. This project brings both a human touch and a chilling sense of urgency to the tragedy, showcasing the courage and resilience of ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances. While deals are still being finalized and a greenlight awaits, sources buzz with excitement for the film's potential. Jamie Lee Curtis' Comet Pictures and Jason Blum's Blumhouse join forces with Ingelsby and Greg Goodman as producers, while Curtis and Amy Lord serve as executive producers. Curtis championed the project after hearing Johnson on NPR, leading her to read the book and bring it to Blumhouse. Momentum truly picked up when Ingelsby's script landed in Greengrass's hands, immediately capturing his interest. Hollywood strikes temporarily slowed progress, but once settled, both Greengrass and McConaughey expressed enthusiasm for the project, the latter after a meeting with the producers. Greengrass remains attached to Warner Bros.' adaptation of "Drowning," based on the bestselling novel, but "The Lost Bus" takes priority before diving into that project. McConaughey, who hasn't been seen in a major feature film in a while, recently signed on to the Apple TV+ comedy series alongside Woody Harrelson, but it seems "The Lost Bus" might be his next big cinematic venture. With top-tier talent both in front of and behind the camera, and a powerful true story at its heart, "The Lost Bus" promises a gripping and emotional experience. Keep your eyes peeled for further updates, as this thrilling project edges closer to reality. Thanks for listening to Quiet Please. Remember to like and share wherever you get your podcasts

  • Matthew McConaughey Stars in Zach Bryan's New Video

    6 FEB 2024 · Oscar Winner Matthew McConaughey Stars in Zach Bryan's Triumphant New 'Nine Ball' Music Video Following Grammy Breakthrough Fresh off claiming his first Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance alongside Kacey Musgraves last weekend, rising country sensation Zach Bryan celebrates his breakthrough Grammy momentum by unveiling his highly anticipated new music video for single “Nine Ball” starring Oscar-winning actor and Texas native Matthew McConaughey. The cinematic visual pairs poignant small-town storytelling with plenty of star power. The prolific Bryan, 27, has skyrocketed from viral TikTok obscurity in 2021 based out of Navy barracks to become Nashville’s most buzzed about modern outsider songwriting talent reinventing the country genre’s boundaries through raw authenticity. After chart-topping 2022 debut album “American Heartbreak,” the Oklahoma native recently released new EP “Boys of Faith” earning more critical acclaim plus key collaborations with indie stars Bon Iver and Noah Kahan signaling Bryan’s unique crossover appeal. Yet beyond accumulating streaming billions, this hardscrabble underdog maintains devoted grassroots following through steadfast touring and channeling lyrical minutiae of overlooked American stories often overlooked by commercial Nashville polish. Bryan’s focus upholding creative authenticity over industry formulas earned him three Grammy nominations this year - including the duet victory with Musgraves manifesting Bryan’s broadening genre alliances. On the heels newfound Grammy validation though, Bryan switches focus unveiling his new “Nine Ball” music video directed by Matthew Dillon Cohen starring Oscar-favorite Hollywood talent Matthew McConaughey alongside actors Tye Sheridan and Scott Shepherd. The opening track and visual sets tone for Bryan’s latest “Boys of Faith” EP channeling small town family bonds and tenuous fidelity against hardship's headwinds - recurring Bryan themes striking relatable chords among loyal listeners. In the new video itself, Texas icon McConaughey inhabits a paternal narrator role overseeing a poignant multi-decade father and son relationship that undergoes evolution through a gritty pool hall lens as time passes framed by Bryan’s centered baritone stripped back to essential vulnerability by acoustic guitars. Director Cohen previously directed Zach Bryan’s “Oklahoma Smokeshow” video showcasing the musician’s signature moody plains photography plus stunning Bon Iver collaborative track clip further suggesting Cohen’s pedigreed eye capturing this artist’s indie appeal authentically. The cumulative result with “Nine Ball” showcases Cohen’s sharp lyrical interpretation enlivening Bryan’s vivid understated character vignettes through an ambient visual tone blending rural atmospherics with Hollywood glow. Real life father and son actors bearing convincing resemblance play the leads across years with McConaughey orbiting their journey as omniscient empathetic guide under Cohen’s steady direction. In many ways the visually stunning short film echoes quintessential McConaughey vehicles like Mud by spotlighting gritty small town stories often overlooked. The patient character study effectively translates Bryan’s revealing narrative illustrating ambivalent generational bonds between stoic fathers and questioning sons who reconcile understanding broader human complexity only through weathering years apart coming to terms what loyalty demands - a densely thematic motif likely resonating many Bryan listeners’ truths. With this latest Grammy credentialed release perfectly channeling Zach Bryan’s signature ability bearing unseen folk stories of overlooked Americans played out through understated country-folk soundtrack, the young troubadour cements 2023 momentum as Nashville’s most compelling outlier songwriter speaking marginalized struggles through boldly vulnerable art bucking commercial conventions. Much as Matthew McConaughey minted maverick acting career actualizing only later following early Hollywood uneven steps, the two Texas sons suggest fruitful roads less traveled get revealed in good timing. And through courage giving voice unflinchingly to outsiders bearing raw wisdom hard-earned through tests of pain and understanding alike, Zach Bryan channels the everyman poetry of the modern Sons of the Lone Star State.

  • McConaughey's unique "Hook 'em" sign

    14 FEB 2024 · Matthew McConaughey's "Hook 'Em" Sign: More Than Just Horns Up? Actor and fervent Texas Longhorns fan, Matthew McConaughey, has become synonymous with exuberant displays of school spirit. From roaring from the sidelines to rocking burnt orange attire, his passion is undeniable. But there's one quirk that has intrigued and even confused fans: his unconventional "Hook 'em" sign. In the now-iconic moment during Texas' 2023 victory over future SEC rival Alabama, McConaughey appeared on ESPN's simulcast, celebrating quarterback Quinn Ewers' touchdown pass with a trademark "Hook 'em!" However, eagle-eyed viewers noticed something unique: his hand gesture, rather than the traditional outward-facing horns, was directed towards himself. Was this a mere oversight, or was there a deeper meaning behind the "Minister of Culture's" unorthodox symbol? As it turns out, the answer is both personal and philosophical, according to Texas athletics director Chris Del Conte. During his annual town hall, Del Conte revealed a conversation he had with McConaughey about the unconventional gesture. "I always ask McConaughey why he does it that way," Del Conte shared, mimicking the hand motion. "And he looks at me and goes, 'Because I always want to know where I live. I'm a Longhorn and I want to remind myself.'" Del Conte, expecting the traditional outward display, expressed surprise. But McConaughey's response resonated with a deeper meaning: "No, I do it this way. So every time I look down, I know who I'm representing and where I went to school." This personal touch to a widely recognized symbol speaks volumes about McConaughey's connection to his alma mater. It goes beyond mere fandom; it's a constant reminder of identity, belonging, and the values instilled within the Longhorn community. McConaughey's unique "Hook 'em" sign transcends a simple hand gesture. It embodies a self-aware pride, a dedication to self-reflection, and a continuous commitment to the spirit of the University of Texas, reminding him, and perhaps inspiring others, to never lose sight of their core values and the communities that shaped them.

  • Matthew McConaughey Approves- The Allure of Blue Kitchen Cabinets

    22 FEB 2024 · Kitchen cabinets play a major role in defining the aesthetic tone and functionality of the heart of the home. With seemingly endless color options to choose from, the decision on which hue to paint the cabinets can be an exciting yet daunting task. Beyond classic white and bright, airy blues, bolder dark shades are also making a statement in modern kitchens. Ultimately, the cabinet color choice comes down to personal style, intended mood, and how the tone complements the broader kitchen design. For decades, crisp white cabinetry has reigned supreme in kitchen design, exuding a clean, timeless look. But some find all-white cabinets flat or lacking character. Recently, many have gravitated towards moodier darks, like charcoal grey and even black, for a dramatic, sophisticated effect. However, one of the most versatile directions is a light, calming blue that pairs seamlessly with any color scheme. Soft blue cabinetry provides a refreshing dose of color without overwhelming. Paint brand Behr predicts airy blues like Windmill Wings, Blueprint, and Clear Blue Sky as top kitchen cabinet colors this year. Celebrities like Matthew McConaughey have embraced the soothing blue cabinet trend, with he and wife Camila Alves opting for a pale robin's egg blue for their rustic kitchen cabinetry. Set against warm wooden accents, the blue provides a calming contrast. Beyond the obvious nautical appeal, blue also connects to nature's abundance, from cloud-strewn skies to deep oceans. Experts note blue's soothing properties, making it an ideal choice for the kitchen, where we seek comfort, connection, and restoration. "In a similar way to green, blue is a color I associate mostly with nature, and specifically summer," says interior designer Matthew Williamson. "It’s got that feel-good factor, and its possibilities are endless. It’s an expansive color we see in nature each and every day, so, as a familiar tone to our eye, it’s no wonder we are naturally drawn to it." These natural roots make blue endlessly versatile for real-world interiors. Williamson encourages looking to blue's presence across the natural landscape for selecting the perfect shade and tone. "When creating a blue-based color palette for an interior refresh, you might not need to look very far for inspiration. Take a blue – any blue, for that matter – and the chances are you might just have the perfect shades right under your nose." From Sky Blue to Navy: Finding the Right Blue Hue When deciding on a blue for kitchen cabinets, the options span from airy, ethereal sky shades to bolder, darker navy tones. Lighter powder blues like Behr's Cathedral Sky feel bright and endlessly cheerful. These work well in small kitchens where you want an illusion of space. Centered in the color wheel, rich royal blues offer a bold yet flexible tone that pairs well with warm metallics and contrasting white countertops. Deeper navy blues lend a sophisticated, moody effect for more traditional kitchen aesthetics. It's helpful to identify the overall feeling you want the kitchen to evoke before selecting a blue hue. Are you seeking an uplifting, sunny ambience? Or a cozy, enveloping atmosphere? Identify any other colors or materials like floors that the blue will interact with. Hold swatches against cabinets and under different lighting to test how the tone shifts. Once you've selected a blue, build outward with complementary accent colors in mind. Integrating Blue Cabinets One of the joys of blue is its design flexibility - from retro diners to beach cottages, blue cabinetry enhances any style. In modern, minimalist kitchens, blue adds a pop of color amidst sleek metals and marble. For contemporary edge, pair navy cabinets with brass accents. In country kitchens, light sky blue complements worn woods and antique finishes. To make small kitchens feel more spacious, lacquer cabinets in palest blue. It's important blue doesn't overwhelm the space. Balance with plenty of whites and naturals in counters, backsplash, and walls. Softer blues work best with warm metals like brass, gold, and copper. To prevent clashing, stick to one or two complementary blues in the entire kitchen design. Beyond cabinetry, utilize blue strategically in kitchen islands, subway tiles, or bar stools. Proper lighting prevents blue from skewing too cold. Mix overhead, task, and accent lighting for brightness and dimension. Northern light keeps blue cabinets vibrant, while yellow bulbs add warmth. For drab spaces, glossy lacquered blues make small kitchens sparkle. Matte blues fit rustic aesthetics but show scuffs over time. Distressed, whitewashed blues offer a beachy flair. Ensure blues complement, but don't distract from the kitchen's culinary functionality. Why Blue Kitchen Cabinets? In the end, light blue kitchen cabinets offer elegance, flexibility, and a lounge-like relaxed ambience ideal for cooking, connecting, and unwinding. Designer Jennifer Jones summarizes why blue cabinetry feels so fresh: "Blue is having a major moment right now because it has the ability to be many things at once. It's calming but also energizing, traditional yet modern, serious yet playful. Blue is a leader color—strong and authoritative—but also tranquil, dependable and honest. There are so many amazing shades of blue to work with, it really does work well in any style kitchen." For those seeking a soothing yet lively jolt of color, blue kitchen cabinets are a playful yet polished design choice that stimulates the senses while creating an inviting, familial space. From airy sky blue to regal navy, a splash of blue invites nature's palette into the heart of home. Thanks for listening to Quiet Please. Remember to like and share wherever you get your podcasts.

  • Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves Share Their Family's Favorite Recipes and Tequila Cocktails

    6 MAR 2024 · Certainly, here's the rewritten version of the article while maintaining its length: Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves Share Their Family's Favorite Recipes and Tequila Cocktails Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves McConaughey have been sharing their lives and love of food for nearly 12 years. The couple, who reside in Texas with their three children — sons Levi, 15, and Livingston, 11, and daughter Vida, 14 — recently revealed their household's most cherished recipes and preferred tequila cocktails in Southern Living's April 2024 cover story. Camila, known for her culinary adventures showcased on her website Women of Today, shared that the most requested dish by both "Ma Mac" (Matthew) and herself is her no-mayo coleslaw. This healthier take on the classic side dish substitutes mayonnaise with a combination of olive oil, vinegar, and lemon juice. When it comes to pleasing their children's palates, Camila's honey chicken recipe takes the lead. The dish features marinated and baked chicken wings and drumettes that are finished with a drizzle of honey and a quick trip under the broiler for a caramelized finish. Matthew, not to be outdone, chimed in with a heartier family favorite: Brazilian chicken stroganoff. "Chicken, and cream, and corn — it's sinfully good," he admitted while noting that they can't indulge in the rich dish every night. All of Camila's recipes can be found on her website, Women of Today, where she shares her passion for cooking and lifestyle tips with her followers. In addition to their favorite meals, the McConaugheys also divulged their go-to tequila cocktails, a fitting topic considering the couple's recently launched joint tequila brand, Pantalones Organic Tequila, in October. Matthew, a true tequila aficionado, prefers his Pantalones reposado on the rocks. "I will not shy away from a good margarita. I won't at all. But because I like my tequila, I like to drink a little more of it. I like to drink it on the rocks, straight so I don't get all that sugar content," he explained. The launch of their tequila brand was accompanied by a cheeky video that saw the couple speeding off on motorcycles in an agave field, wearing nothing but their aviator sunglasses and button-down shirts — a clever nod to the brand's name, Pantalones, which means "pants" in Spanish. "When did tequila stop being tequila?" Matthew asked in the clip, with Camila adding, "Right? Where's the fun?" The video humorously blurred the couple from the waist down, emphasizing their pantsless state as they rode off on a dirt path. As the McConaugheys toasted to their new venture, the clip showed them from behind, their pantsless bodies once again blurred, as they joked, "Please do not keep yours on." With their shared love of food, family, and now tequila, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves McConaughey continue to invite fans into their lives, one delicious recipe and cheeky video at a time.

  • Texas is "Alight" With Them

    23 MAR 2024 · McConaughey and Alves Find Peace and Purpose in Texas Hollywood A-listers Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves have swapped the fast lane of California living for the laid-back charm of Texas, and a decade later, they're still basking in the afterglow. In a recent interview with Southern Living magazine, the couple attributed their newfound sense of peace and family connection to the slower pace of life they discovered in Austin. "Time just feels different here," McConaughey shared. "It's like our internal clocks have finally caught up with the rhythm of the place. Part of it's the daily routines, the way things are spaced out, and the overall calmness. But there's also a genuine friendliness, a respectfulness, and, most importantly for us, a refreshing lack of unnecessary drama." Alves, a native of Brazil, admits California held a special place in her heart initially. "We had built a beautiful home together in Malibu, raised our kids there, I even had a thriving beehive in the yard!" she reminisced fondly. A family situation brought them to Austin, and during a quiet car ride after visiting McConaughey's mom, the seed for a permanent move was planted.  Alves noticed a content glint in her husband's eyes and, with a playful nudge, asked if he secretly harbored a desire to stay. McConaughey's simple "Yep" led to a laugh-filled exchange before they both wholeheartedly agreed, "Let's do it!" While McConaughey, a Texas native, seamlessly reconnected with his roots, Alves found comfort in the Southern hospitality that echoed her Brazilian upbringing. "The respect for elders, the 'Yes, ma'am' and 'No, sir' – it all felt very familiar," she explained. The couple has embraced a routine-filled life in Texas. "We attend the same church every Sunday, the kids are involved in sports, and we make family dinners a priority," Alves shared. McConaughey, with a touch of nostalgia, chimed in, "Rituals are key! Whether it's church, sports, or simply unwinding together in the kitchen, these shared experiences create a strong foundation for our family bond." This move wasn't just about finding a new address; for McConaughey, it was a return to his origins. He believes everyone benefits from reconnecting with their birthplace. "Imagine spending a month in the place you were born," he mused. "How would it affect your perspective, your creativity, even your emotions?" While California may have been where their paths initially crossed, Texas seems to be where McConaughey and Alves found their own happily ever after. Thanks for listening to Quiet Please.
