Matthew, 50 continued by imploring people to be careful and try not to get paranoid. He also appealed to his fans to take due precautions and care for one another.

He continued by talking about how this pandemic is going to affect the economy over the long run, but he insists that things will get better with time. He concluded the inspirational video by telling people to make lemonade out of this lemon being served. The amazing video was captioned, 

"because every red light eventually turns green."


Fans of the actor were glad to hear from him, and many took to the comments section to pour out their love. One fan told the actor that, 

"Thank you for your positivity, you put a smile on my face today.?"


Matthew McConaughey isn't the only celebrity speaking out during these trying times. One notable star is the former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
