Matthew McConaughey says in his new memoir that he was sexually abused on multiple occasions as a teenager.
via Page Six:
“I was blackmailed into having sex for the first time when I was 15,” the 50-year-old actor wrote in his newly autobiography, “Greenlights.”
“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.”
The Oscar winner also revealed that he was “molested by a man when I was eighteen while knocked unconscious in the back of a van.”
He didn’t give details about either case of abuse. However, he says that he’s never felt like a victim as, “I have a lot of proof that the world is conspiring to make me happy.”
The married father-of-three also details his parents’ tempestuous marriage. They were married thrice, divorced twice, and had arguments that resulted in broken bones.
The “Dallas Buyers Club” star wrote that his father James died immediately after making love to the actor’s mother in 1992.
‘Greenlights’ is available now wherever books are sold.
