Another Big Celebrity Just Made their Instagram Debut
Matthew McConaughey (@officiallymcconaughey) finally joined Instagram yesterday in celebration of his 50th birthday.
The Gentlemen actor posted a video on Instagram of himself giving a mini “monologue” on why he joined the platform and what he wants people to see on his page.
“When people come to my page, I want them to see me,” McConaughey said in the video.
“This is my first venture into sharing myself and my views with the world and I’m a little bit nervous about it because quite frankly, I know I want to have a monologue, I’m not sure I want to have the dialogue, but I’m learning that you have to have the dialogue to have the monologue, just as you have a monologue to have the dialogue.”
In a very Matthew McConaughey fashion, the father of three announced the official news of joining Instagram by tweeting a video about it first.
“Born November the 4th 1969, got my dad’s name the very same day. But not until I turned 50, today, did I become @officiallymcconaughey. That’s my Instagram handle. See you there,” McConaughey said in the video.

The fun does not stop there because he the actor also took to Instagram stories to sing a little song about, you guessed it, joining Instagram.
“Do I have an Instagram? Well, I’d be a lot cooler if I did. But guess what? It is now a lot cooler because I do,” he sang.

“Woohoo!! Instagram just got so much BETTER,” Actress Reese Witherspoon (@reesewitherspoon) commented.
“I hope you enjoy it because it’s way more fun than I ever thought,” Professional Golfer Phil Mickleson (@philmickleson) also commented.
“I’m looking forward to sharing who I am with you. I’m looking forward to seeing if who I am translates if what I want to share translates, if it tickles your funny bone, if it makes you think a second, if it makes your heart swell up a little bit, if it makes you take a quiet moment and go for a walk," McConaughey continued in the Instagram video.
"Let’s have some fun with it though."
