In an excerpt from the book, McConaughey revealed that his dad, James Donald McConaughey, died in 1992 in the way he predicted all along. “I got a call from my Mom. ‘Your dad died,’” McConaughey wrote. “My knees buckled. I couldn’t believe it. He was my dad. Nobody or nothing could kill him. Except for mom. He’d always told me and my brothers, ‘Boys, when I go, I’m gonna be makin’ love to your mother.’ And that’s what happened. He had a heart attack when he climaxed.”
McConaughey explained that his father and his mother, Kay, had sustained a very fraught on-and-off-again "sometimes violent" relationship in which they "were divorced twice, married three times." Though McConaughey maintained that there was "love," there, he called their relationship "the Pacific Ocean in a storm.” In a testament to his mother's tenacity, he went on to say that even though his mother is now 88, she's back in the game. In fact, in January, he set her up with Hugh Grant's 91-year-old widowed father. Yes, that is a real Thing That Happened. So, our question is — when is the movie adaptation of Greenlights coming out?
