Hollywood is currently engaged in a culture war with Donald Trump. The billionaire property magnate has been the butt of more scathing rebukes and wisecracks from tinsel town actors than any President in recent history. This makes it all the more surprising Matthew McConaughey has gone against the grain and provided a positive perspective on Mr Trump's presidency. The Oscar-winning actor, who is known for his roles in Wolf of Wall Street and True Detective, urged Hollywood to “embrace” Mr Trump.

McConaughey argued Americans should learn to be “constructive” even if they do not agree with the President.

Appearing on the Andrew Marr Show, he was pressed about whether it was time for Hollywood to give the President a break.

In an interview with BBC this week, show host Andrew Marr compared the characters in McConaughey's new movie “Gold” to “not Trump’s America, but this is small-time, central redneck America sticking one up to the snotty East Coast and the elites."

“Every single American actor or arty type who comes over to London dumps on Trump. You all completely hate him. Do you think it's time maybe Hollywood or the cultural elite of America gave this guy a break,” asked Marr.

He then asked McConaughey if it was time for Hollywood to give the president a break.

“They don’t have a choice now,” McConaughey replied. “He’s our president. It’s very dynamic and as divisive of a time and inauguration as we’ve had, at the same time, it’s time for us to embrace. Shake hands with this fact, be constructive with him over the next four years.“
