Matthew McConaughey is a cool cat but he revealed that he was able to keep his cool when he had a run-in with one of Australia's deadliest animals back in the day.
McConaughey appeared on the popular Australian morning show, "Today" where he revealed why the brown snake is his favorite animal from down under.
“When I was here, I almost stepped on [a brown snake]. I should have been bitten,” he told the "Today" host.
“It was a bit dark. It went right through my legs and gave me bit of a scare.”
He did not realize it at the time, but he described that his friend was shocked when he saw how close McConaughey came to needing a visit to the emergency room.
“My friend came over, and they caught it and said, ‘That’s a brown snake, mate… that could have really sucked.’ That’s [why it’s] my favorite animal because it didn’t bite me,” McConaughey said.
