Born to a father, who was formerly a football player, and a mother, a published author, Matthew McConaughey was the youngest of his three siblings. Initially, after being thinking of becoming a lawyer, McConaughey kick-started his acting career after Richard Linklater cast him in his coming-of-age teen comedy-drama film ‘Dazed and Confused’, which has since gained a cult status. Though he was not cast in complex roles and remained isolated to romantic comedies, it was not until him being cast in ‘Magic Mike’ in 2012, which spurted out his cinematic genius and hurled him into awards-limelight.

So, let’s celebrate his career by taking a look at the list of top Matthew McConaughey movies and TV shows. You can watch some of these movies on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
