The actor appeared on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday night and addressed talk that he plans to run for governor of his home state of Texas.

The “Dallas Buyers Club” star said he had just read a headline about his supposed political aspirations.

The whole thing gave McConaughey a laugh. “I have no plans to do that right now,” he said.

“Right now, no. I don’t get politics,” he said. “Politics seems to be a broken business, politics needs to redefine its purpose.”
