During his most recent interview, the actor revealed that he trusts his “core beliefs enough,” and his “values enough, to feel comfortable listening to an opposing one,” adding that the “whole embassy of politics has some redefining of its purpose.”

Matthew shared his unconformity with politics nowadays, explaining that “We try to teach our kids delayed gratification but we don‘t like to think about further than tomorrow, we need immediate results.”

“How many things do actual leaders and politicians get done that now become realized later on after they‘re off? They never get credit for them,” he said.

This is not the first time the actor talks about his interest in politics, admitting last November that while had “no plans to do that right now,” it would be “up to a lot of other people.”

The acclaimed star says “we‘ve got to make some sacrifices for larger rewards tomorrow,” explaining that the best example for him is “the damn dispute over the masks that got politicized,” as he says ”This is a short-term inconvenience for long-term freedom. There’s no data that says it‘s not a good thing, no data that says it’s harmful. Let‘s all take one for the team here,“ Matthew added.
