Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey's rugged good looks have won him many fans and seen him cast in a long list of romantic comedies and action films. But after graduating high school in 1988, he spent a year in Australia as an exchange student. During this time, he made some extra cash by shoveling chicken manure and washing dishes. Returning to the United States in 1990, McConaughey considered a career in law but caught the acting bug instead.
