Matthew McConaughey reveals he was ‘molested’ as a teen

MATTHEW McConaughey reveals in his new memoirs that he was ‘molested’ as a teen and that he was also ‘blackmailed’ into losing his virginity at 15.

The 50-year-old Oscar-winning actor revealed in his book ‘Greenlights‘ that he “was molested by a man when I was 18 while knocked unconscious in the back of a van.”

The father-of-three said that despite that harrowing incident he has: “never felt like a victim. I have a lot of proof that the world is conspiring to make me happy.”

The traumatic incidents began in McConaughey’s earlier teens when he says: “I was blackmailed into having sex for the first time when I was 15. I was certain I was going to hell for the premarital sex.

“Today, I am merely certain that I hope that’s not the case.”

This is the first time McConaughey has made these revelations public, although in 2016, the Hollywood actor supported the University Of Texas’ “Rape Elimination Program” by shuttling students home from campus after dark.

To raise awareness for preventing sexual assault, Matthew was pictured at the time in a golf cart taking people home.
