After much speculation, actor Matthew McConaughey announced on Twitter that he is not running for governor of Texas.

The Oscar winner said he was honored to be even considered.

‘As a simple kid born in the town of Uvalde, Texas, it never occurred to me that I would one day be considered for political leadership,’ he said. 


‘It’s a humbling and inspiring path to ponder. It is also a path that I am choosing not to take at this moment.’
