1 Photo Shows Matthew McConaughey’s Son Resembles Him
The beloved Texas-born actor and his gorgeous wife Camila Alves McConaughey have three children together, the eldest of which is named Levi.
At just 12 years old Levi is already showing his parents what kind of person he’s going to become and he’s clearly taking a lot after his father – they look like twins!

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Matthew McConaughey explains how Levi is following in his footsteps and discussed his brand new memoir, titled Greenlights.
“Levi is the most considerate person I’ve ever met,” he told the news outlet. “Yeah, he’s extremely considerate and a very, very sensitive young man and really cares — really caring kid. And he, like me, has a very much perfectionist bone in him.”
Beyond growing into a kind and considerate young man, Matthew says that Levi is also interested in various aspects of the film industry (like directing) and is an excellent storyteller.
“He wants things to be exactly how he wants them,” he continues. “And he is very definite at exactly how that is and is not afraid to hop up on the chair and orate to everyone exactly what he means in case you do not understand. He’s a great salesman, he’s a great debater, he’s a great storyteller, he’s becoming a really good storyteller. He and I, we riff up stories and he knows, we give a little wink when we embellish somewhere, like ‘Oh, that didn’t happen, but hey, it’s better for the story,’ but for the most part he’s very active and he’s becoming a good buddy of mine now as he’s reaching 12.”

The comments exploded with folks commenting how much like his father Levi looks and saying that the pair are essentially identical.
And just like his dad, Levi has shown interest along with his siblings in helping out with various parts of commercial shoots.
“Look, I want them to do whatever it is they’re fashioned to do,” Matthew explained. “Whatever they have an innate ability to do, and are willing to put in the work to get better at it. Whatever that is, I want them to do that. If that becomes something in the industry that I’m in? Bravo. I’ve met some of the most wonderful people in my life in my industry, I love what I do. Everybody on a set of a film or a TV show has to be great at their particular job for it to work.”
“I have already started to employ them,” he adds. “They do all my photo shoots now. They did the Longbranch ads. Levi did. He’s the DP, he’s the one going out there, we’re setting up the GoPros. We’re doing the editing. So, maybe I’ll have a little McConaughey production crew here, and we’ll be a one-stop shop.”
