“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.

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.
