Sure he just won the Oscar for best actor for "Dallas Buyers Club," but when it came time to talk it after the show, Matthew McConaughey was just as interested in what reporters thought about his new HBO series "True Detective."
The program has quickly become a hit, and McConaughey realized he was doing Oscar interviews about the same time a new episode was airing in some markets. He asked if anyone had seen it and what they thought.
Suddenly there were shouts of "No spoilers." Many in the press corps hadn't had time to tune in.
"I don't know what happens," McConaughey said, throwing up his arms.
"Aww, maybe I do and I'm not telling," he added with a knowing grin.
