Matthew McConaughey Collected

The actor writes that he was ‘blackmailed into having sex at 15’ and ‘molested by a man at 18 while knocked unconscious’

Actor Matthew McConaughey released a new memoir titled Greenlights on October 20 and wrote about the sexual abuse he suffered as a teenager.

"This is not a traditional memoir, or an advice book, but rather a playbook based on adventures in my life," he stated.

While not elaborating on the abuse he went through, the actor wrote, “I was blackmailed into having sex for the first time when I was 15. I was certain I was going to hell for the premarital sex. Today, I am merely certain that I hope that’s not the case.”

He also writes that he was “molested by a man when I was 18 while knocked unconscious in the back of a van.”

McConaughey revealed that his parents had a rocky marriage. He claims that his father died while having sex with his mother. “’My knees buckled. I couldn’t believe it. He was my dad. Nobody or nothing could kill him. Except for mom. He’d always told me and my brothers, ‘Boys, when I go, I’m gonna be makin’ love to your mother.’ And that’s what happened. He had a heart attack when he climaxed."

"If you gotta go, that’s the way to go,” the actor quipped.

The new memoir sheds light on the extra-ordinary moments of the actor’s life that he describes as green, yellow or red lights, moments that made him 'go forward, pause or stop.' McConaughey reveals the lessons he learned and the wonderful people he met along the way.

The  Academy Award-winning actor is known as a highly versatile Hollywood star with films like Dazed and Confused, The Lincoln Lawyer, Intersteller, Mud and Dallas Buyers Club under his belt.
