Glamour: What has been the coolest career opportunity to come out of ?
So I made a "I love the universe" picture and figured I could give the proceeds to that.
I really wanted to intern for Wes because he's one of my favorite filmmakers and lives in New York and has a production company there.
I sent a little weird DVD of movies I made and a note saying I would love to get him coffee. I'm very fortunate because he was the first person to ever put me in something as an actor, so I'm very grateful for him for doing that.
"I helped produce it, and I couldn't be more proud."But first, it's time to learn more about the actor. Glamour: Who is the person people say you most look like? [John] almost played my dad on , and we actually became friends. Glamour: What do you wish you could go back and tell yourself when you walked on set that first day? Matthew: In my quest to do every single thing imaginable, I love making shirts and stickers and buttons, and the totes were just…a lot of bummers are going on in the world, and the Red Cross helps everyone, and I just wanted to do something to spread some cheer.
Maybe they thought I was Eric Christian Olsen or something?
Father of this successful model turned actor was a lawyer and his mother Marilyn was a political consultant and rancher by profession.
He has two sibling’s brother Gray and a sister Laura.
Matthew: I'm happy every day that I get up and I'm alive.He attended the Las Vegas Academy, Visual and Performing Arts for high schooling and chose acting as major.However, he was more interested in filmmaking and then enrolled in New York Uni Tisch School of the Arts for film direction.I like the idea of giving things to people in need. I have a crazy memory, and I remember being two years old at someone's party and thinking, "This party is boring! " I got up and tried to do this really dumb dance that I saw Winnie the Pooh do, and I remember falling over and thinking, "This is what it's all about."Glamour: What did your parents think? Matthew: They are the most lovely, encouraging parents a kid could ever ask for. He's a wonderful pillar of sincerity and honesty. I've been wearing fedoras since I was six years old until I wore that hat to the Beach Boys concert. They are probably the ugliest glasses you've ever seen in your entire life, but very practical.I've been lavished with nothing but encouragement—probably too much! He's like Abe Lincoln meets Atticus Finch, and he dresses like that too. Glamour: You recently posted a photo of yourself at a Beach Boys concert at age 11. My idols growing up were Harry Anderson, who was an obscure magician/comic from . Glamour: You graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, and while you were there, you were found by a model scout and did campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, American Eagle, Kate Spade, etc.
