The words were a reference to a recent feel-good message from McConaughey amid the coronavirus pandemic, about how “every red light eventually turns green.”
“There is a green light on the other side of this red light that we’re in right now,” he said. “I believe that that green light can be built upon the values that we can enact right now. Values of fairness, kindness, accountability, resilience, respect, courage.”
"If we practice those things right now, [when] we get out of this, this virus might be the one time that brings us all together and unifies us like we have not been in a long time,” he continued. “So let's see if we can make some lemonade out of this lemon that we're in the middle off -- turn a red light into a green light. Just keep living."
