And as The Dark Tower
prepares to hit theaters this week, McConaughey is already hard at work on his next project. Luckily, he’s gotten to bring his family along with him to the undisclosed tropical location.
“Well, its work for me, but work feels like a vacation which on Saturday and Sunday this one does,” McConaughey said. “The best part about it is my kids are getting to fill their passports. The passports are full, the culture was the best educator for me, and my kids are getting it.”
As for what his three kids think of him, McConaughey seems pretty confident.

“Yeah I'm a cool dad,” he said. “I'm a good dad. I mean, that doesn’t mean my son and I always agree. He thanks me for [saying], ‘Thank you for correcting me here and there. Thank you for disciplining me here and there.’ And I'm glad he thinks that’s cool.”
The Dark Tower
is in theaters Aug. 4.
