Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey changed his mind about going into politics and decided not to apply for the post of governor of his native state of Texas. He stated this in a video message that he posted on Twitter.

According to McConaughey, the struggle for political leadership is not the path he is currently choosing. “What am I going to do? I will continue to work and invest the funds I have in support of entrepreneurs, firms, foundations, which, as I believe, create opportunities for people to succeed in life,” the actor shared.

Earlier, Matthew McConaughey said during The Balanced Voice podcast that he would think about becoming governor of Texas and running for this post. At the same time, last year the actor called such activities hopeless.
