Early life

McConaughey was born on November 4, 1969, in Uvalde, Texas. His mother, Mary Kathleen (née McCabe), is a published author and a former kindergarten teacher. She was originally from Trenton, New Jersey. His father, James Donald “Jim” McConaughey, was born in Mississippi in 1929 and raised in Louisiana where he ran an oil pipe supply business; he played for the Kentucky Wildcats and the Houston Cougars college football teams. Jim was selected by the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) in the 27th round of the 1953 NFL draft. He was released before the season began and never played an official league game in the NFL. McConaughey’s ancestry includes English, German, Irish, Scottish, and Swedish origins, with some of his Irish roots being from the Cavan/Monaghan area. He is a relative of Confederate brigadier general Dandridge McRae. He had a Methodist upbringing.

McConaughey’s parents married each other three times, having divorced each other twice.[He has two older brothers, Michael and Patrick (who was adopted). Michael, nicknamed “Rooster”, is a self-made millionaire who starred in the CNBC docu-series West Texas Investors Club and the 2018 A&E reality show Rooster & Butch with Wayne (Butch) Gilliam.

McConaughey moved to Longview, Texas, in 1980[8] and later attended Longview High School. In 1988 he went to Australia thinking he would be attending a high school in Sydney. Instead he lived in Warnervale, New South Wales for a year while he went to Gorokan High School (he was a Rotary Youth Exchange student) and worked as an assistant for an attorney and as a bank teller for ANZ. He attended the University of Texas at Austin (UT-Austin), where he joined the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. He began in the fall of 1989 and graduated in the spring of 1993 with a Bachelor of Science in Radio-Television-Film.

His original plan changed as he had wanted to attend Southern Methodist University until one of his brothers told him that private-school tuition would have been a burden on the family’s finances. He had planned to attend law school after graduation from college but discovered he did not have any interest in becoming a lawyer.

A Christian, McConaughey often speaks publicly about his faith. He attends a non-denominational church. He has stated that he has received private personal criticism and judgement for his beliefs from some members of Hollywood

I have had – and I won’t throw any people under the bus – but I have had moments where I was on stage receiving an award in front of my peers in Hollywood, and there were people in the crowd that I have prayed with before dinners many times, and when I thanked God, I saw some of those people go to clap, but then notice that, ‘bad thing on my resume’ and then sit back on their hands.

In 2019, he became a minority owner of Austin FC, a team in Major League Soccer which began play in 2021.

McConaughey has been a longtime fan of the Washington Commanders football team.

In 2023, McConaughey stated that he and longtime friend Woody Harrelson could potentially be brothers. His mother claimed to have been intimate with Harrelson’s .father, Charles Harrelson, around the time of McConaughey’s conception
