Matthew McConaughey has admitted he was ''disgusted'' when he first read the script for 'Killer Joe' before he realised how hilarious it was.
Matthew McConaughey was ''disgusted'' when he first read the script for 'Killer Joe'.
The 42-year-old actor was initially reluctant to appear in the film - in which he plays the titular killer who befriends a young man who wants his mother murdered for her life insurance - until he read the story a second time and realised how funny it is.
He told Total Film magazine: ''When I first read the script, I was kind of disgusted. I just felt dirty. I didn't want to be around it.
''And then I talked to somebody whose opinion I trust and he said, 'Dude, it's hilarious! Read it again, man.'
''I went back and read it again with my funny bone alive and I found some of the humour among this character who's also deadly and a predator.''
Matthew was glad he agreed to star in the film because he had such a good time working with director William Friedkin.
He said: ''He usually does one take. Sometimes two. It was a ball. I don't wanna be up there thinking about what I'm gonna do, on the day, or right before the scene; I wanna have that work done before so I can just rip it.
''I don't want to leave the set. I don't even wanna have lunch a lot of the time. I don't wanna have the outside world interrupting me, getting in my eyeline, getting in my ear.''
