Kate Hudson has just learned that her friend and frequent co-star Matthew McConaughey could be getting into politics.
Hudson was on Rob Lowe’s “Literally!” podcast where she found out that her “Fool’s Gold” and “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days” co-star is considering a run for governor of Texas.
Lowe asked Hudson if she was going to help with his campaign should he decide to run.
After a long silence, Lowe added, “That was a long pause. Can I just say for the record, that was a very long pause.”
“Sorry, hold on. Let me just take a sip of my [drink],” Husdon said. “I have not heard this. This is the first I’m hearing of McConaughey getting into politics.
“He’s a really interesting guy. I, 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? 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.”
According to Politico, McConaughey has been “quietly making calls to influential people in Texas political circles, including a deep-pocketed moderate Republican and energy CEO, to take their temperature on the race and to talk about seriously throwing his hat in the ring.”
