In his latest film, Killer Joe, Matthew McConaughey plays a detective who moonlights as a hitman. The film is brutal and ultra-violent. So violent, in fact, that Matthew was hesitant to even take the role on.

He tells Hollywood interviewer Jeanne Wolf, “I was disgusted with the material. I didn’t see any humor in it. I didn’t want to be a part of the world.”

But he says he talked it over with friends whose opinions he trusted and was able to re-read the script and see the dark humor.

Jeanne also asked Matthew, 42, if he feels any different since marrying his pregnant wife, Camila Alves. Watch the video below for his answer!
