Matthew McConaughey featured on the cover of People Magazine… in a photo taken by his kids

It turns out, Austin's beloved actor Matthew McConaughey isn't the only talent in the family as his children are already entering the creative business.


McConaughey was featured on this month's People Magazine cover in a photo taken by none other than his kids. In fact, the magazine featured a whole spread taken by his 12-year-old son, Levi.


In the spread, the 50-year-old actor discusses his joy in fatherhood, telling People, becoming a father was "ahead of any dreams of a career or vocation or fame or wealth. Being a father was the paramount."

McConaughey told People that quarantine has, in a sense, been a blessing on his children, Levi, 10-year-old Vida and 8-year-old Livingston, and encouraged them to delight in and hone their creative abilities.

The actor, who wears many hats from UT professor to novelist, told People that all three children have become quite good at snapping his photo, but they each have their own varied and independent interests, and he is proud that they are becoming self-reliant.

"The only thing I ever knew I wanted to be was a father and it's remained the pinnacle for me," McConaughey told People. "Being a dad was always my only dream."

Fatherhood is something McConaughey talks about in his new memoir, "Greenlights," which will be featured at the Texas Book Festival this year. The book comes out Oct. 20, but is currently available for preorder.
