The singer was spotted with a copy of the actor’s memoir, Greenlights, last month (October 2020), and the Dallas Buyers Club star reveals he saw the photo and considers Mendes a pal and “good young man”.
“He reached out a while back and he and I have taken contact and will continue to,” McConaughey tells Entertainment Tonight. “I know my kids have seen him and know his music and etcetera.”
The relationship has impressed young Levi, Livingston, and Vida, who are all big fans of the In My Blood hitmaker.
“My kids are like, ‘You got his number? You got his number?’ ‘Yeah, yeah!’ And I’m like, ‘Do you want to call him?’ And they’re like, ‘No, no, no, no. I got to think about what I’m going to say’.”
