'It's Time for Us to Embrace' Donald Trump Several celebs have been openly criticizing Donald Trump, but Matthew McConaughey is unlikely to be joining the protesters anytime soon. The Oscar winner said in a new interview that it's time to make peace with the new president. McConaughey, 47, was speaking to British Channel FI about his new movie, Gold, when the interviewer noted that "every single American actor or arty type who comes over to London dumps on Trump," and asked if it was time for Hollywood and America's cultural elite to give the former reality TV star "a break." And it's very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time that we've ever had. At the same time, it's time for us to embrace, shake hands with this fact, and be constructive with him over the next four years,"
