'I'm not afraid of the fanny pack'
Matthew McConaughey has been on a tear: the Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club, stealing the show in The Wolf of Wall Street, flattening time as Rust Cohle in True Detective.
Pundits have been calling it a "McConaissance" (Cohle would cringe). But the point here is that, at a Sunday afternoon MLB game at Fenway Park, McConaughey used his larger-than-ever celebrity to register his staunch support for ... fanny packs. Better yet, he was wearing a bum bag while doing so.
Alright, alright, alright. It's another testament to McConaughey's unflappable cool that he was able to appear 100% at ease in an interview that awkward.
"I got so much gear in here I don't want in my pockets," he tells CSN Houston's Julia Morales. "I'm not afraid of the fanny pack."
Back in 1999, you'll recall, McConaughey was arrested after police following up on a noise complaint found the actor buck naked in his house playing bongos and raising some sort of drug-fueled ruckus. So we can only imagine what kind of fun "gear" McConaughey keeps in his pack. Then again, he is a father of three now, so perhaps this is simply McConaughey's inevitable descent down the dark path to dorky dad-dom.
