You gotta love Thanksgiving.
From spending time with family, gorging on food until you’re in a coma, watching football all day (unless your family is one of those who prefer the Thanksgiving dog show), to trying to pretend you’d love to be with cousin Cletus, who only shows up for a free plate of food once a year.
Every family has their own unique Thanksgiving traditions, and one celebrity in particular takes the opportunity to give us a glimpse of celebrating with their family…
And it’s nothing but Matthew McConaughey.
In a short clip entitled “Turkey Talk” he shares:
“Thanksgiving in our house, we’re pretty much one, we love to grill, we love to start a fire in the garden and we don’t eat early. We can say “dinner at 7:00”, but in reality the meat is ready at 11:00, why? Mainly because of my older brother.
He doesn’t like to grill, he likes to smoke… Because it takes so damn long and he’s got something to do with his cigar and his beer, sitting out in the backyard and just kinda looking at that smoker.
And he doesn’t really do anything with it, he’s not a chef, but he kind of looks at the smoker, ‘Ah, I think we’ve got a few more hours, a few more hours’, really, he’s just buying himself time so he sit around and keep chatting with everyone.
That’s Thanksgiving at our house. Thanksgiving dinner? 11, midnight.”
So if you ever get the chance to spend your Thanksgiving with the McConaughey family, just know you don’t get that turkey until after bedtime.
