Matthew McConaughey took his role as Austin, Texas’, “Minister of Culture” to relay a very important message to the city’s residents. In early April, the actor joined Mayor Steve Adler and Judge Sarah Eckhart to deliver a public service announcement. Mostly, he wanted to deter students from going on spring break this year.

To all of the teens and college students, McConaughey said, “I’m sorry you have these responsibilities on you at this time. It’s an unprecedented time in all our lives, but face the facts that they’re here. This is a science-fiction film no more. It’s reality, man. Deal with it.”
