Matthew McConaughey shut down a question about Donald Trump during a live interview.
The Hollywood actor appeared on Wednesday night’s The Project, where he spoke with host Carrie Bickmore about his new memoir, Greenlights.
The 50-year-old seemed to be enjoying the interview until it turned political when Carrie asked him how he felt about the president.
‘How do you feel about Trump?’ the host quizzed.
‘How do I feel about him?’ he repeated. ‘I want a fuller context and a longer form to talk about that.’
‘If I said something to you now, one line could be taken out of context and could be put into a headline, so I don’t want to take the chance for that,’ the actor added.
‘I need a longer form when I know it’s word for word when it’s broadcast.’
Clearly taken a back at his response, Carried replied: ‘Well let’s lock in that chat for another day!’
‘Great to chat! It’s been fabulous. Thank you very much for your time,’ she added as she ended the chat.
Several celebrities have recently spoken out about Trump and the election.
Skunk Anansie’s Skin claims that ‘racism has grown’ since 2016 when Trump was elected and the UK voted to leave the EU.
The 53-year-old told Classic Rock magazine: ‘Racism has grown since Trump came to power and the UK voted for Brexit.’
‘Black Lives Matter is really important because there’s been an air, when black people talk about racism, they kind of get shoved to the side.
‘No one really wanted to talk about it. And now it’s put it right smack front and center in front of people’s faces.
‘It’s really vital that people put this at the forefront of conversation because racism and antisemitism have been getting worse and worse over the last few years.
‘If you’re not the one being persecuted, it’s very easy to step aside and not get involved.’
Earlier this week, Kirstie Alley also defended her decision to vote for President Trump in the US election, stating that he’s ‘not a politician’.
The former Celebrity Big Brother star announced that she was siding with the Republican Party in the upcoming presidential election but, naturally, faced a storm of backlash for supporting the divisive POTUS.
