Matthew McConaughey is criticizing some of his colleagues in Hollywood for having a "condescending" and "arrogant" attitude towards President TrumpDonald TrumpChinese apps could face subpoenas, bans under Biden executive order: report Kim says North Korea needs to be 'prepared' for 'confrontation' with US Ex-Colorado GOP chair accused of stealing more than 0K from pro-Trump PAC MORE's voters.

"There's a lot on that illiberal left that absolutely condescend, patronize and are arrogant towards that other 50 percent," the "True Detective" actor said during a recent interview on comedian Russell Brand's "Under the Skin" podcast.

"Many people were in our industry when Trump was voted in four years ago, they were in denial that it was real," McConaughey said while promoting his new memoir, "Greenlights."


Without citing specific famous names, the Academy Award winner slammed left-leaning celebrities for sharing a get-out-the-vote message ahead of the 2020 presidential election, but tacking on a partisan, anti-Trump message with it.

The "left," McConaughey said, "can't help themselves."

"At the very end of [get-out-the-vote PSAs they say,] 'So we don't let those criminal bastards get back in office!' I'm like, no, don't say the last part! You lost 50 percent of your audience," exclaimed McConaughey.

"And that's part of why so much of the nation of that 50 percent looks at us in Hollywood like 'oh yeah, another celebrity over there, the West Coasters, the elites in the northeast,'" he said.

McConaughey described Democrats and Republicans as "two vehicles on either side of the political aisle are so far apart their f---ing tires aren't even on the pavement anymore."

"And I understand, they've been fed fake news. No one knows what the hell to believe, right? So they're putting down their last bastion of defense," he said.

McConaughey, who flirted with a future Texas gubernatorial run in an interview last month, said there's plenty of room in the middle of the road for both sides of the political aisle to come together.

"Let's get aggressively centric," he advised. "I dare you."
