"I was in kindergarten... My buddy Josh Griffin says, 'Hey Matt, you want to go play on the monkey bars?' And I ran out and said, 'Yeah!' And halfway to the monkey bars I feel this hand on my shoulder... I look up, and it's my mother in my face, and she's like, 'What are you doing...? What's your name?' I said, 'Matthew'. She says, 'Don't you ever answer to Matt again. I named you Matthew from the Bible'. I was like, 'Yes ma'am!'" Matthew Mcconaughey will never answer to the name of Matt.
