Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba answered the most-Googled questions about themselves
They worked together in The Dark Tower, and they partnered up for yet another important project — Googling. Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba learned what people Google when they look up information on the two actors and decided to set the record straight, once and for all.
The video was put together by WIRED, who have used the format countless times before. Thanks to them, we’ve learned a lot about some of the most notable celebrities of all time, from buddies Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal to Snatched co-stars Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer.
The Dark Tower is set to open in theaters tomorrow, so why not learn a little bit more about its two leads?
After McConaughey asked Elba a few questions (like, where he’s from — which is London, by the way) Elba started out by asking McConaughey a few questions, and as you may have expected, his trademark phrase of “Alright Alright Alright” was brought up pretty quickly. McConaughey notes that it all came from his very first film, Dazed and Confused.
And instead of getting creeped out about the question of where his house is, he answers almost poetically — wherever his hat is hanging. Today, that happens to be right in New York City.
Of course, most of the questions asked are on the verge of being a bit zany.
For example, for the people who were wondering — and even McConaughey seems a little confused as to why — Idris Elba is not left handed. Phew. Now we can sleep at night.
Also, no — Elba isn’t related to Jessica Alba. (But it’d be pretty cool if he was.)
The best part about this video is, without a doubt, the chemistry these two actors have with each other. We can tell that they had nothing but good times working together on the set of The Dark Tower.
