McConaughey's Daily Pop interview came just days after the actor celebrated his 51st birthday, which he rang in with his wife Camila Alves and their three kids.

As it turns out, it was actually Camila who helped push McConaughey to write his recent memoir—based in-part on diaries he's kept since age 14—called Greenlights.

"About three years ago I thought about it and Camila helped me. She said, 'Quit waiting around. Let's go away with all those diaries and see what you got,'" he recalled. "So she gave me a kick in the backside and said, 'Don't come back home until you do have something. So I went away with me and those journals and came back with what is essentially in the book Greenlights."

Since returning home from what he called "solitary confinement," McConaughey has spent much of his time with his children. Of the trio, McConaughey said his eldest, Levi, is most similar to him personality-wise.

"He and I, we love to tell a good story. We love a good debate. We love a good presentation. We love to get exactly what we want when we're going after something," McConaughey explained. "I learn a lot from him. He's an incredibly considerate—more considerate probably than I am—young man and kind young man."
