Wet Dreams Inspired Matthew McConaughey To Travel The World

Wet Dreams Inspired Matthew McConaughey To Travel The World

Follow your dreams, they say.

But that wasn't enough for Matthew McConaughey, who took things a step further by following his wet dreams - all the way to Africa and South America.

So, how the hell did this happen? Well, it started with a very unusual wet dream in 1996.

The 51-year-old actor recounted the strange sticky sleep fantasy in his book Greenlights.

A passage reads:

"I HAD A WET DREAM.

"Yes, the involuntary intercourse-, hands-, and fellatio-free nocturnal emission of semen one has while sleeping. Rare but welcomed, these lucid dreams most commonly involve a theme of activity. This wet dream was not common.

"I was seeing myself floating downstream on my back in the Amazon River, wrapped up by anacondas and pythons, surrounded by crocodiles, piranhas and freshwater sharks. There were African tribesmen lined up shoulder to shoulder on the ridge to the left of me as far as my eyes could see.

"I was at peace.

"Eleven frames.

"Eleven seconds.

Now, even by wet dream standards that is a bit peculiar, isn't it?

But being Matthew McConaughey, he didn't just clean his sheets and do his best to bury the dream forever.

Nope, he set about trying to figure out what it meant. He grabbed his atlas and began looking for the Amazon River in Africa - only realising after two hours that the Amazon River is in South America.

Despite this confusion, the Magic Mike actor concluded it was a 'sign' and he headed off on a 22-day trip to Peru.

Elaborating on why he decided to embark on the trip on the podcast WTF With Marc Maron, he said: "It was a celestial suggestion to me that I took quite seriously, OK?

"And I did not know exactly what I needed to go find, but I was like, 'This is a wonderful excuse to get the f*** out of here and go off on your own. And you know what, I'm gonna say that's probably a good idea anyway for somebody anytime they can do it, but right now since you got that celestial suggestion through this wet dream, this one might have a higher hand - let's go chase it down and see what we can get out of it.'"

The chase wasn't over there though, because when McConaughey had the same dream three years later, he figured he needed to take another trip, this time exploring the African aspect of the dream and heading off to Mali for 'the greatest trip' of his life.

So remember folks, always follow your (wet) dreams.
