Matthew McConaughey has posted an inspirational message urging the world to unite against coronavirus.
The 50-year-old actor shared his thoughts about the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic, in a video that he posted on his social media accounts.
The Oscar winning actor urged solidarity in the face of the killer virus, telling his followers: “Hey everybody, McConaughey here, just want to say that in these crazy times that we’re in with the coronavirus, let’s take care of ourselves and each other.”
Matthew continued: “Let’s not go to the lowest common denominator and get paranoid. Let’s do our due diligence, take the precautions we need to take care of ourselves and those of us around us.
“Right now, more than ever before, we’re all more dependent on each other than we ever have been.
“We have an enemy in coronavirus that is faceless, that is raceless, sexless, non-denominational and bipartisan, and it’s an enemy that we all agree we want to beat.
“We want to beat and we’re going to beat.”
Matthew predicts economic turmoil as the pandemic grips countries across the globe.
He added: “So, in this time when people are going to move on, the economy is going to be in shambles for who knows how long, there is a green light on the other side of this red light that we’re in right now.
“I believe that green light is going to be built upon the values that we can enact right now. Values of fairness, kindness, accountability, resilience, respect, courage.”
Matthew has urged his fans in joining him with his beliefs.
The actor continued: “If we practice those things right now, when we get out of this, this virus, this time might be the one time that brings us all together and unifies us like we have not been in a long time.
“So, yes, let’s see if we can make some lemonade out of this lemon that we’re living in the middle of. Turn a red light into a green light and just keep living.”
Matthew rose to fame in the comedy Dazed In Confused in 1993, before bagging the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2014 for Dallas Buyers Club.
He has been married since 2012 to model Camila Alves, and they share sons Levi, 11, Livingston, seven, and daughter Vida, 10.
