The 51-year-old actor has revealed his own father always made him address people as “sir” or “ma’am” when he was growing up, and as a child, Matthew thought the reason he had to use respectful terms when addressing adults was because they were parents.
He said: "It was when I was eight years old is when it hit me. I wanted to be a father. I remember what it was. My dad was a 'sirs,' and 'ma'ams' and 'please' and 'thank you' man, and he would introduce me to his friends.

Gallery: Prince Harry shows us The Me You Can't See: 10 shocking revelations from the show (BANG Showbiz)
"I always wanted to be normal, to just be Harry"
On several occasions, Prince Harry has been speaking out about the struggles of his life as a member of the British royal family. The recent docu-series, ‘The Me You Can’t See’, an Apple TV+ project focused on mental health and featuring Prince Harry and Oprah Winfery, gave the Duke of Sussex yet another platform to voice his criticisms. Here are 10 shocking revelations Harry made...
Harry turned to drugs and alcohol after Diana's death
Harry, who was only 12 when his mother died, revealed that he went through a reckless party phase because of Diana’s death. “I was willing to drink, I was willing to take drugs, I was willing to try and do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling. But I slowly became aware that, OK, I wasn't drinking Monday to Friday, but I would probably drink a week's worth in one day on a Friday or a Saturday night," the Duke of Sussex revealed on the show. Harry explained that he was “completely unaware of it”. He continued: "And I would find myself drinking, not because I was enjoying it but because I was trying to mask something."
Harry was put through ‘pain and suffering’ by Charles’ parenting
In the documentary, Harry expanded on his previous claims around the effects of his dad Prince Charles’ parenting, originally made on the ‘Armchair Expert’ podcast. “My father used to say to me when I was younger … ‘Well, it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you,’" the prince told Oprah. Harry explained that his father’s words didn't “make sense" to him. “Just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact, quite the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences that you had, you can make it right for your kids," he added.
Harry’s happiest time was in the army
The prince said that the happiest time of his life was during the 10 years he spent fighting in Afghanistan. He explained how being in the army got him away from the media spotlight and gave him the chance to be treated like everyone else. He said: “I got to wear the same uniform as everyone else, I had to do all the same training as everyone else, I started from the bottom like everyone else. There was no special treatment because of who I was.”
The family ‘let him suffer’
Harry told Oprah how he felt a lack of support from the royal family after his mother’s death, because of their own old-fashioned ways. He said: “I wasn't in an environment where it was encouraged to talk about it either, that was kind of squashed. [I needed to speak out for] the past, to heal myself from the past.” The prince accused his family of not even talking about Diana’s death. He explained how he struggled to deal with the increasing media attention at the time, and the resulting mental distress as a young teenager. He revealed how the royals encouraged him to “play the game”.
The royal family wanted to stop ‘Megxit’
In early 2020, Harry and Meghan announced that they were stepping away from their royal duties. In the show, Harry revealed that the royal family knew about the announcement and tried to stop him. The Duke of Sussex revealed: "Eventually when I made that decision for my family, I was still told, ‘You can’t do this.’ “And it’s like, ‘Well, how bad does it have to get until I am allowed to do this?’ She [Markle] was going to end her life. It shouldn’t have to get to that."
Harry was angry at the public’s reaction to Diana’s death
The Duke of Sussex spoke of the surreal experience of losing his mother when he was just 12. He recalled how his grief turned into anger when he saw the public’s reaction. He said: "It was like I was outside of my body and walking along doing what was expected of me. Showing one-tenth of the emotion everyone else was showing". His anger grew as he saw the lack of justice after Diana’s death. He said: “I was so angry with what happened to her and the fact there was no justice. At all. Nothing came from that. The same people who chased her into that tunnel photographed her as she was dying on the back seat of that car."
Why Meghan didn't take her own life
During the Oprah interview in March, the former actress revealed that she had suicidal thoughts in the year before the departure from her royal duties. In the docu-series, Harry revealed that his wife didn’t act on her suicidal thoughts because she wanted to spare him the pain of another loss, following his mother’s death in 1997. He said: "The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby."
Meghan ‘cried in her pillow’ after bullying allegations
In the docuseries, Harry recalled his wife’s reaction to the bullying allegations made against her. In March, Meghan’s former advisors made a bullying complaint against her, as reported by ‘The Times’ newspaper. Harry described the Duchess of Sussex’ “heartbreaking” reaction to the "combined effort of The Firm and the media to smear her." He recalled: "I was woken up in the middle of the night to her crying in her pillow because she doesn’t want to wake me up because I’m already carrying too much. “That’s heartbreaking. I held her, we talked, she cried, and she cried and she cried.” Meghan’s team has strongly refuted the allegations.
“I'm eight years old looking up to them and shaking their hands saying, 'Nice to meet you, sir. Nice to meet you, sir. Nice to meet you, sir.' At that moment, I had already shaken many of his friends hands through years, but at that moment in my eight year old mind, what went through my mind is, 'Oh, the common denominator about all these men that I'm saying 'sir' to is that they're fathers. That's why they're a 'sir.' ”
And the ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ star – who is now father to Levi, 12, Vida, 11, and Livingston, eight, whom he has with his wife Camila Alves – knew that becoming a father would mean he had “made it”.
Speaking to Tim McGraw on the singer’s radio show, ‘Beyond The Influence Radio with Tim McGraw’, on Apple Music Country, he said: "I remember in my eight year old mind going, 'That's when you've made it. That's when you become a sir. That's what success is.’ It hit me then, and it's never left me as the paramount example of what being a sir or being the greatest success you can be as a man."
