Matthew McConaughey is opening up about his run as Hollywood's rom-com guy in the '00s — and how he fully embraced it. Until he didn't.

I’m living in a pad in Malibu, surfing on the beach shirtless. I'm shirtless rom-com McConaughey and I'm like, 'You damn right I am. Those rom-coms are paying for these houses that I'm renting on the beach, baby. Guilty. Come on.'"
