About Matthew McConaughey's real height

People have a right to know Matthew McConaughey's real height and he is here to tell them -- in his own words -- exactly 5 feet 11 inches and 3 quarters.

Matthew has been pretty exact and pretty consistent in his claim, he has told David Letterman so (which letterman immediately dismissed, guessing "5'10" as his real height).

Then Matthew had told People Magazine exactly the same thing -- but they didn't have the nerve to call him out on it -- well not everyone can be David Letterman.

All is well -- it is just that we don't think Mr. McConaughey is actually 5'11¾".

But is he lying? Well no. We believe that his claim is very specific and pretty consistent -- this must have stemmed from an actual measurement -- but only the measurement was with his shoes still on -- so he is not lying in a way, is he?

Lots of people claim to be as tall as they have been measured in their footwear. Even heights in passports or Police Mugshots are with shoes on.

Perhaps because that is the height you are seen in public the most. So perhaps the authorities think that way people can identify someone by height in public.

In any case, Matthew McConaughey has a good height -- not too tall, not too short. Sometimes, because of his bad posture (especially his neck), he may look shorter than he really is.

After comparing his height with people like Tom Cruise (5'7¾"), Robert Downey jr. (5'7¾"), Woody Harrelson (5ft 9 ½), Stephen Colbert (5'10½"), George Clooney (5'10½"), Jimmy Fallon (5'11½"), etc, we think Matthew is exactly as tall as he claims -- minus an inch -- 5 feet 10 inches and 3 quarters.

Becoming good at something.

Life's barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you get good at.

Life is not fair.

Life is not fair, it never was and it is now and it won't ever be. Do not fall into the trap. The entitlement trap, of feeling like you're a victim. You are not.

On the word selfish.

I’m a fan of the word selfish. Self. Ish. When I say I have gotten a lot more self-ish, I mean I am less concerned with what people think of me. I’m not worried about how I’m perceived. Selfish has always gotten a bad rap. You should do it for yourself.

Gratitude is the new attitude.

Give thanks. Appreciate what you DO have ... the more we give thanks, the more we receive to be thankful for. Gratitude is the gift that always gives back.

Happiness vs. joy.

If happiness is what you’re after, then you are going to be let down frequently and be unhappy much of the time. Joy, though, is something else. It’s not a choice, not a response to some result, it is a constant. Joy is “the feeling we have from doing what we are fashioned to do,” no matter the outcome.


The older you get, the more rules they’re gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin’ man, l-i-v-i-n’

Grace in women.

When I see grace in a woman, that's very sexy. You can tell by how someone moves or their rhythm.

The three things he needs.

There are three things, to my account, that I need each day. One of them is something to look up to, another is something to look forward to, and another is someone to chase.

On jealousy.

Sure, I can get a little bit jealous. The good part about jealousy is that it comes from passion. It's also the dangerous part and it's an ugly emotion that hurts.
