50-year-old famous Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey this year released a memoir called Greenlights, in which he shared the details of his life and made some shocking confessions. In particular, the actor wrote in the book that at the age of 18 he became a victim of sexual violence by a man.
McConaughey revealed that he was in the van and was unconscious when it happened. He did not name the name of the one who abused him.
Matthew also admitted that he had first sex experience at the age of 15 as he was subjected to blackmail.
I was sure I was going to hell. Today I hope it doesn’t happen – he shares in the book.
However, despite his teenage injuries, the actor retained a positive outlook on the world.
I never felt like a victim, he admits.
For eight years now, the Oscar-winning actor has been happily married to the Brazilian model Camila Alves. The couple is raising three children: 12-year-old Levy, 10-year-old Weeda, and 7-year-old Livingston. Now Matthew is an exemplary husband and family man, but before his marriage to 38-year-old Alves, his personal life was rather stormy. In Hollywood, he was known as a real heartthrob: he won the hearts of Sandra Bullock, Ashley Judd, Renee Zellweger, Patricia Arquette, and Penelope Cruz.
