female gazing at: Matthew McConaughey


In honor of his Oscar win for Best Actor in Dallas Buyers Club, let us gaze upon Matthew McConaughey.


I never could have predicted that I’d ever have any desire to gaze upon McConaughey. Not that he’s physically replusive or anything, but his onscreen persona certainly has been… until the last few years.


Recently — and delightfully — he’s been taking on challenging roles and demonstrating that he can be really, really good in creating genuine, complex characters. Now that’s sexy.


And a vaguely Indiana Jones-ish vibe never hurts. (I am in the minority in really liking Sahara, even though it was still in McConaughey’s less-than-appealing phase).


(If you have a suggestion for someone we should female-gaze at, feel free to email me with a name or a link to a particular photo. But check to see whom we’ve already gazed at.)
