20. He loves Airstreams
Though many people associate McConaughey with his heavily mocked Lincoln ads, Airstream is the company that the actor has shown the most loyalty to over the years. For Esquire's 2011 profile, writer Tom Chiarella spent a night in one of the trailers McConaughey keeps in his backyard so people can have a place to crash when he throws parties. What types of things did Chiarella find in the Airstream? "Two field passes to the Fiesta Bowl" and "a backstage pass to a Willie Nelson concert." Sounds about right.
21. He wrote a road-trip blog for MTV
Actor, spokesman, and… blogger? To promote his action flop Sahara, McConaughey traveled across the country in his Airstream and kept a travel blog for MTV's website. Unfortunately, the actual text seems to have been lost to the sands of internet-time -- but it's probably better this way: In 20 years someone can "rediscover" them and publish his blogs as an On the Road-like book.
22. He has his own secret YouTube account
McConaughey is pretty much an open book -- he's very frank in interviews and doesn't seem to have a lot of secrets. So, why was he keeping a secret YouTube account that very few people ever watched until a Reddit user stumbled upon it earlier this year? What other web platforms are you hiding content on, McConaughey? Where's your Snapchat? How can we find your LiveJournal? How many Reign of Fire fan Tumblrs do you secretly admin?
23. He really, really loves the Olympics
Given his love of sports, it's not surprising that McConaughey enjoys the Olympics. But, man, this year we learned the former triathlete really, really, really loves the Olympics. If only there were an event that combined bongos, foot massages, and Airstreams -- McConaughey would have a gold medal by now. Sadly, he'll have to settle with his Oscar and millions of dollars.
