Matthew McConaughey criticizes Hollywood 'far left;' says the right is in election 'denial'
Matthew McConaughey is doing his best to demonstrate during his current, seemingly unending book promotional tour that he is different from other Hollywood stars who discuss politics.
The "aggressively centrist" McConaughey, 51, decried "far left" Hollywood political types during a podcast interview with British comedian Russell Brand.
"There are a lot (of people) on that illiberal left that absolutely condescend, patronize, and are arrogant towards that other 50 percent," said the Oscar-winning actor while promoting his memoir "Greenlights."
Brand brought up politics when asking about societal "condemnation and criticism" of "ordinary working people."
There's "kind of an offhandedness, of like, ‘Oh, they’re dumb, they’re voting for Brexit, they’re voting for Trump.’ I don’t like it, and I don’t like to hear it," said Brand.
