It is unclear if McConaughey got the bee sting while he was on set filming, but considering his love for road trips, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched that he had a run-in while traveling.

“I’m on the road every weekend now,” he told Pursuitist last month. “I’m on set in Louisiana for my new movie, but I drive home every weekend to be with my family. I got my new Navigator in January and I’ve already put 13,000 miles on it. Man, that’s a lot of miles, but I love it. I love the solitude. It’s great to have some time to myself.”

As he spends so many hours in the car, what does the actor do to bypass time? “I start out the morning with my NPR, then I’ll ease into some other stuff, and then who knows, around 2 AM, I’ll probably be listening to Pink Floyd,” he told the outlet.

The actor admitted that he is more of a spontaneous type and doesn’t usually plan out his travel.

“I only pick one thing; North, South, East or West. I just get on the road and go. That’s the point,” he said. “The only other governor I give myself is what’s the time limit. Alright I got two months, we’ll just head out and after I get going I’ll figure out where I’m going.”

“You know, you travel, you’re not free right when you walk out the door. You’ve got to get out and get your separation before you can settle down and go, ‘Ah, now I’m on time.’ When I leave business, when I leave L.A. the clock’s moving too fast,” he added.

Matthew McConaughey is best known for his rom-coms such as “The Wedding Planner,” “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days,” “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past,” and more, but he wanted to try and head down a different path, leading him to step away from Hollywood for two years.

“I’ve usually zigged when I felt like Hollywood wanted me to zag,” McConaughey told Interview Magazine. “When I had my rom-com years, there was only so much bandwidth I could give to those and those were some solid hits for me. But I wanted to try some other stuff. Of course I wasn’t getting it, so I had to leave Hollywood for two years.”

“Dude, it was scary. I had long talks with my wife about needing to find a new vocation,” he continued. “I think I’m going to teach high school classes. I think I’m going to study to be a conductor. I think I’m going to go be a wildlife guide.”

The actor eventually returned to acting, and when he did, he wowed Hollywood as he won the Oscar for best actor for his performance in “Dallas Buyers Club.”
