Matthew McConaughey has revealed his fame doesn't prevent him from playing the drums while naked.

The Dallas Buyers Club star was arrested in 1999 during a disturbance at his home in which police said he was dancing naked and playing the bongo drums, and he has now admitted those days aren't completely behind him.

"Of course I still play the congas naked," he told GQ. "I just close the windows!"

Matthew, 44, also told how he is feeling "very fulfilled" in both his professional and home life these days.

The actor, who has three children with wife Camila Alves, said: " I'm in the clay in my career. And I'm in the clay in my personal life. I'm turned on. I'm interested in things."

He added that he also feels comfortable watching himself on the big screen now.

He said: "I saw Dallas Buyers Club. I liked it. I liked that guy. I didn't catch you acting, McConaughey. I forgot that was you, McConaughey."

"But it's an evolvement. It's a process. It's not finished and wrapped yet."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
