Matthew McConaughey, 51, was recently interviewed for a new Facebook Watch special called “Peace Out 2020.” During the sneak peek of the interview the actor spoke about the trials and positivity from 2020.

He revealed that one of the positive things that came out of the year was that his mother was able to quarantine with his family. Mary Kathlene McCabe, 88, moved in with her son’s family when the pandemic hit.

The show will start airing on Tuesday, December 29, 2020, at 3 p.m. ET. McConaughey and his mother hadn’t always been close as they struggled with an 8-year estrangement which they discussed on the "Red Table Talk."
