Well, I suppose there are a lot of worse ways to go.

In a new interview with People TV, McConaughey discussed his family life, his childhood, his parents relationship and more, but also, how his father passed away. And in true McConaughey fashion, he went out with a bang… literally.

The interview contains an exclusive excerpt from his new memoir, Greenlights:

“I got a call from my Mom. ‘Your dad died.’ My knees buckled. I couldn’t believe it. He was my dad. Nobody or nothing could kill him. Except mom.

He’d always told me and my brothers, ‘Boys, when I go, I’m gonna be makin’ love to your mother.’ And that’s what happened. He had a heart attack when he climaxed.”

A death worthy of the legendary McConaughey name.

McConaughey’s upcoming memoir Greenlights is set to hit bookstore shelves on October 20th of this year.
