“Find Your Frequency

While dealing with fame, McConaughey took some roles that were important to him. Contact’s theme was about the relationship of God and science, and Amistad discussed slavery. The first film was successful, but the second project started a string of financial disappointments.

frequency:頻率、調性、頻繁性
frequent:頻繁的
deal with:應付、處理、與…相關(= handling something)
theme:主題
slavery:奴隸、奴役
disappointment:失望、沮喪、掃興

“We all have a frequency, where things are clicking,” McConaughey says. “I can adapt better. I’m catching more green lights.” Looking back, he might say he found his frequency in romantic comedy. He describes a light quality in romantic comedies that keeps things very “Saturdays.” and he adds, “I’m good on Saturdays.” Starting with 2001’s The Wedding Planner, he was involved with several hits.

click:進行順利、變得清楚
adapt:適應
look back:(= think about the past)
romantic comedy:愛情喜劇
describe:描述、形容
involve with:涉及某種情況或活動、熱中某事、和某人關係密切

However, money-makers like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days were looked down upon. So McConaughey decided to take a break. “I’m getting into my 40s, a great time for a man. I’ve started a family. I want to take time to laugh and love and enjoy these adventures.” His frequency had changed.

money-maker:會賺錢的生意或人
look down upon (someone or something):看不起、輕視(某人或某事)


文法:
… started a string of …
(…引發了一連串…)

特別補充:
on the same wavelength
:志趣相同
adopt:採納、收養
adapt:適應
adept:熟練的
blockbuster:大轟動
