Gold. Always believe in your soul. You’ve got the power to know, you’re indestructible. Always believe in…Gold. Not just the words to Spandau Ballet’s greatest hit, but also words that apply to bongo-lover Matthew McConaughey, who coincidentally returns to cinemas this week with new film Gold. Inspired by true events, Gold tells the story of Kenny Wells (McConaughey), a modern day prospectordesperate for a lucky break. Left with few options, Wells teams up with an equally luckless geologist to execute a grandiose, last-ditch effort: to find gold deep in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia.
Before he drove off into them thar hills, we grabbed McConaughey for a quick chat about playing Kenny Wells, and what life advice a spot of prospecting can give you. Watch our exclusive video below: the results are pure GOLD.
