Matthew McConaughey Is Secretly a Part-Time YouTuber

Matthew McConaughey has two things that don't typically go together: An Oscar and a YouTube channel full of selfie videos he shot on his phone.

The Oscar-winning actor has a (verified!) YouTube channel that most of the internet didn't know about (as of this writing, he has 58,823 subscribers — which makes him a mere bronze-level channel, according to YouTube). We have Reddit user S1icedBread to thank for bringing our collective attention to the hidden gem, according to E! Online.

Don't get too excited though — McConaughey doesn't use his channel to post uber-personal vlogs or Pinterest-y DIY tutorials. It's rarely updated and mostly consists of promotional videos, like trailers and callouts to raise awareness and support for some of his favorite charities, like the Just Keep Livin Foundation, which supports inner-city high schools, and the I Am Waters Foundation, which works to ensure the homeless have access to clean water.

Hopefully the channel's newfound popularity will inspire McConaughey to step up his vlogging game or at least post behind-the-scenes videos next awards season.
