Show Notes:
[1:00] Jordan Peterson kicks off the conversation by asking why and how Matthew McConaughey wrote his book Greenlights.
[4:00] Matthew realized he needed to write the book himself without a ghostwriter as initially planned and dig back into his journals as a form of necessary reflection on the past.
[6:00] Matthew’s old journals revealed their common thread through all the stories, poems, and bumper stickers. That common thread was the creation of good things in life through mindset or action “Greenlights.”
[12:00] Jordan talks about his initial response after reading Matthew’s book and how his expectations were changed.
[14:00] Matthew talks about his solo trips when starting to create the structure of his book. Jordan comments that this was a book written by a celebrity that did not really focus on the traditional parts of being a celebrity (very family-focused and foundational). Matthew states, “When we were editing the book, I found that the more personal the stories became, the more relatable they seemed to become, to the human condition, and that was my hope.”
[18:00] Jordan and Matthew revisit the African trip, chasing dreams and having the same exact dream multiple times over the span of many years.
[24:00] What was the personal impact on Matthew during his trip to Africa where he got to strip away the identity we all know him for and exist as something else? Jordan comments that very often, people confuse their reputation with who they really are, and they start to act as a representation of their reputation instead of themselves; it’s an easy trap to fall into.
[22:00] Matthew discusses dealing with the pitfalls of fame. Matthew covers his changing relationship with his mother due to success.
[25:00] Jordan B. Peterson asks Matthew McConaughey about some of his acting work in True Detective and playing dark characters. “How do you play a dark role very well without letting the darkness invade you?”
[32:00] Matthew talks about the positive aspects of the sometimes tense relationship with his father and having a childhood that balanced love and hardship directed from the same people.
[37:00] Jordan and Matthew continue talking about going deeper into the psychology of a dark character like Rustin Cole on True Detective
[45:30] Matthew expanded on the short-term effects of initial fame.
[51:30] Matthew and Jordan discuss the long-term effects of fame.
[55:00] Jordan points out, “If flawed people were incapable of creativity, we would have no creativity.”
[1:03:00] How Matthew and Jordan first became friends.
[1:07:30] Matthew shares a comical review of his own book written as if Jordan was the one reviewing it.

    This pseudo-intellectual celebrity has only pomposity and the absence of humility to offer.

When we interview celebrities as intellectuals, we put a crown on a dung hill.

    Absolutely brilliant discussion. Amazing to listen to and it I just wanted the discussion to continue. One thing though.... Getting towards the end I'm sure I saw Matthew's naked knee poke up. I pictured him sat there in his underpants and shirt like on Anchor Man. It tickled me to think of him sat there having such an in-depth conversation whilst in his underwear. I wander if he tucks his shirt in? Oh, how I've missed you Jordan Peterson.

    I enjoyed this conversation. I cannot help but think of another actor and another project that I find extremely interesting: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn + Robert Downey Jr. = Robert Downey Jr. is at a mature age where he will, I believe, be much more selective in choosing characters that he would portray. There is no need to lay out his creative abilities. Alan Turing + Benedict Cumberbatch = The Imitation Game 8 out of 10 on IMDB. Alan Turing was truly a great hero. Many people were not aware of his enormous influence in the war and the future of our communication. Huge. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was a huge hero who captured the truth behind ideas that were sold as wonderful but only led to selfish cruelty and suffering. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn + Robert Downey Jr. =. ???????? Why not see what you, Dr. Peterson, can produce or influence to produce a film just as amazing with another huge star that can also relate to spending time in a facility, despite his prison time as a much less horrible and debilitating experience. Is there another actor that can begin to understand the psychology of at least a portion of the life of Solzhenitsyn? I hope you consider this idea seriously. I’m sure there have been others mentioning potential for such a film. I started to listen to Gulag Archipelago. I hope to finish it sometime but I must also maintain the great balance I need in my life with the family I cherish. Hope your family has the strength from the Lord to continue all the good works y’all can do to uplift others in the search for understanding and truth. God bless! Jonathan

    @Uncle Kerr If you can't see how blindly ridiculous the argument you're making is & how astronomical of a false equivalency that it is, I really don't know what to tell you.

    @Uncle Kerr Again, you're completely overshooting the target here. What you said about vanity is correct, now - how does having a hair transplant equate to any of what you just said? The two have no logical connection, yet you falsely equivocate the two as if they somehow go hand & hand. You're making claims that are far too bold & direct to be assumed from one aspect (which is a hair transplant in this case). If you want to actually be taken seriously, you can't draw outlandish conclusions from minute details. What you have essentially just claimed is the equivalent of me claiming you wish to exterminate all life by polluting the Earth because you drive a car. It's an absurd outlandish claim with no basis in logic or fact, just like your claim that a hair transplant equates to vanity, fraud, bad mental health, and misinformation. You cannot just make innane assumptions from insignificant details (that may have come from reasons completely different than you assume them to be).

    @Jared Schmidt If you examine Jordan's style of self help or psychology you will find a rudimentary component of "goal getting" establish your ideal and aim at it and that will produce meaning. I am afraid most goals are composed of selfishness and vanity so his ideology is comparable to a socialist who thinks the reason socialism does work is because"they did use enough equality". His set of ideas is critically flawed, we (including him) must take the very difficult step of admitting we have be duped by our own desire for help and start again.

    @Jared Schmidt It's extremely hard to over come vanity just as it is very hard to attain good and robust mental health. I would say when looking for some sort of role model to emulate or learn from the absence of vanity is a good indicator that a person is developed in maturity and can help you. Vanity is a massively powerful force in our world and it's really no small thing to overcome it but it sets us free. Jordan is not free from it so he can't not guide anyone else to free themselves from it.

    @Jared Schmidt A vain person cares more about what people think about them than the truth and therefore they will inevitably end up "playing to the crowd". This is extremely dangerous with someone dealing with the health of others, it makes them very slow to admit fault and if they do admit fault it's done in a lesser degree, they will make the mistake out to be a lesser degree than it is to protect their own self image or vanity.

    @Henrie Bryce I totally understand that fame has to imply challenges. Sure it does. But there's no comparison in my opinion between them and the difficulties associated to not having enough to eat, working 14 hours for 2 dollars or loosing a relative for lack of health insurance. I'm absolutely with you; I don't need or desire his wealth or fame, probably because both of us are privileged enough in the current global context. After a couple of box office hits if an actor feels that's not the kind of life he wants nobody force them to keep doing the same and not taking their earnings, sell the Beverly Hills mansion and live has a dairy farmer o climbing trainer. That's the real incomparable privilege: ENDLESS CHOICES.

    I mean, how can you not imagine yourself in their shoes, and the mental toll you'd likely feel with having the fame, and money? You seem to equate having "things" to happiness, and that's just not the case. It takes a true mental sacrifice to tell yourself you deserve all of that adoration and money while knowing others are struggling around you to make ends meet. I imagine it's what people mean when they say that celebrities have sold their soul for fame, because metaphorically they have. I think you only have to look at the rampant drug use, and suicide rates of celebrities to understand that it's not exactly easy to be famous. I personally would never want their money nor their fame, but if that's what you wish for more power to you. Also, I understand that yes, having money makes their lives technically easier in the physical realm, and in our society, but it comes with different mental challenges in terms of struggle with self, and ego, and likely a lot of questions in their head on whether they deserve anything around them. That's just how I view it, and my perspective on hearing about a celebrities' struggle with fame, or rather, a human with different life circumstances.

    Can't think of a deeply insightful comment. So I'll just let everyone know I need to take a dump.

    I don't get it...this seems like a huge ego sharing how important or interesting it is compared to others but without any awe inspiring actions.

    I can truly say that I was on the edge of my seat throughout this entire conversation, what a great conversation it felt like a counseling session at times and yet it was just two, dare I say, great men who have been able to examine life and live life in ways that opens up our eyes to what life is about. Thank you Mr. Peterson and Mr McConaughey for sharing this conversation and the glimpse into your life, with the rest of the world . I very much look forward to reading both books and will order them as soon as I get back to work. Thank You.
