Fans of Matthew McConaughey will have a great opportunity to hear from him today at 10 a.m. when the Oscar-winning actor and his wife, model and designer Camila Alves McConaughey, will read Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Does someone on staff for Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott have a special sense of humor or did McConaughey pick the book himself, reinforcing his image? In any case, how appropriate for the man who was once arrested at his Austin home for playing bongo drums while nude after a neighbor called in a 2:30 a.m. noise complaint in 1999.
Since then, of course, McConaughey has gone on to other exploits and greater fame and apparently has become a lot more respectable since it is Abbott who announced that the couple will be the special guests for her Stars of Texas Storytime via Facebook Live on Governor Greg Abbott’s page.
