With Justin Bieber well on his way to becoming the prince of shirtlessness, it’s about time that the king weighed in on things, because if anyone has perfected the art of being shirtless nearly all the time, it’s the Texas-born Matthew McConaughey.
After years of taking out the garbage shirtless, running with Lance Armstrong shirtless, playing with his kids shirtless, working out on playgrounds shirtless, and filming movies in which he’s shirtless, McConaughey has more shirtless wisdom than anyone else in Hollywood. And as long as Bieber is ready to fully commit to a lifetime of sunscreen and crunches, we think it’s only logical that he turn to McConaughey for advice.
When MTV asked McConaughey to weigh in on Bieber’s shirtlessness, the king responded with, “He keeps doing it in airports though, right?” It’s true that the Magic Mike star typically wears a shirt through airport security, but that doesn’t mean that he thinks it’s necessary: “I’m not saying you got to wear a shirt in an airport, especially I think [if] he’s flying private. He can wear what he wants.”
Final words of wisdom from the king? Shirtlessness is never out of the question: “It’s appropriate wherever you say it’s appropriate; it’s your shirt.” There you have it, Biebs.
