Matthew McConaughey is stuck at home and still doing alright, alright, alright, as his character in “Dazed and Confused” would say. But in contrast with his easygoing persona, he hasn’t stopped working.

McConaughey, also known for roles in “Dallas Buyers Club” and dozens of other movies, released a memoir last month called “Greenlights.” Plus, in quarantine, his children stepped in to help him do photoshoots and tape ads, he said.

“They’re starting to get adept with cameras [and] editing,” he tells Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer. “I may come out of this and in a couple of years, I’m a one-stop shop.”

In a new interview, he joined “Influencers with Andy Serwer” to discuss Hollywood amid COVID-19, why he called stock brokers in preparation for his role in “Wolf of Wall Street,” the origins of his famous Lincoln car ads, and even his outlook for the U.S. in this delicate political moment.
