Matthew McConaughey has shared details of his parents’ volatile relationship ― and how it came to an end.
“I got a call from my Mum. ‘Your dad died.’ My knees buckled,” McConaughey wrote in an excerpt shared by People. “I couldn’t believe it. He was my dad. Nobody or nothing could kill him. Except mum. He’d always told me and my brothers, ‘Boys, when I go, I’m gonna be makin’ love to your mother.’ And that’s what happened. He had a heart attack when he climaxed.”
The ‘Beach Bum’ actor, who was born after his parents married each other for the third time, characterised their bond as “the Pacific Ocean in a storm.”
“They were, at times, violent,” he told People. “As I say in the book, that is how they communicated.”
His father died in 1992. His mother is now 88.
