Kate Hudson's Reaction To Matthew McConaughey's Political Aspirations

While Hudson may be skeptical of McConaughey’s potential candidacy, she does believe that the set-it-straight actor has “a lot of heart.” She continued, “He’s not a per-se definitive politician, but he does go on these great, per-se definitive conversations about politics and this and that. He’s not like, ‘I’m going to be a politician,’ … he goes on and on about it.” So, if McConaughey is interested in politics, I believe that he would do well in 2021.

Matthew McConaughey can do it all, politics included! In 2021, the “Mud” star toyed with the idea of potentially running for Texas governor on the “Set it Straight: Myths and Legends” podcast. The actor shared, “I’m more of a folk singin’, philosopher, poet-statesman than I am a per-se definitive politician. So I go, ‘Well, that’s a reason not to,’ but then I go, ‘Oh, well, that’s exactly why you should.’ Because politics needs redefinition.” Word of McConaughey’s potential candidacy quickly spread, but one person was unaware of his political aspirations, his former costar, Kate Hudson.

The “Almost Famous” actor found out about McConaughey’s potential run for governor after Rob Lowe told the actor on his podcast, “Literally! With Rob Lowe.” To say Hudson was shocked was an understatement — she was astonished. She said, “This is the first I’m hearing of McConaughey getting into politics.” After her shock subsided, Hudson shared nice words about McConaughey. She gushed, “…honestly if he does want to get into politics, I believe that Matthew, you probably wouldn’t get a politician who would care as much as he does, you know?” While she thinks McConaughey would do a great job, she doesn’t deny that it would be tough. She said, “I think he’s very authentic in how much heart, um, but the governor of Texas is a big job. I mean, is that what we’re talking about? The governor of Texas? … Oh, wow.”
