Aside from McConaughey’s apparent bee incident, the actor has been busy as of late: he and his wife Camila Alves McConaughey shared birthday wishes to their eldest son Levi on Sunday, July 7, by sharing a montage of photos of the 16-year-old with his parents and a voiceover message.

“Alright Levi, coming on that age, buddy. About to be out on your own”, the star said in part during his voiceover. “Me and your mom hope we’ve done as good of a job as we can. You’re not gonna really have us as a safety net out there in the wonderful, wild world forever.”

As per People, Matthew and Camila also share two younger kids: daughter Vida, 14, and son Livingston, 11. In June, McConaughey admitted during a conversation with fellow Texas native Glen Powell for Interview magazine that he once took a two-year break from working in Hollywood after he felt he was struggling to book movie roles outside of the romantic comedy genre, where he made early 2000s classics like ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’ (2003).

“Dude, it was scary. I had long talks with my wife about needing to find a new vocation,” he shared of the hiatus. He recalled that he told his wife at various points during this time that he was considering teaching high school, studying to conduct music or working as a “wildlife guide.”

Santosh Singh opens up on fickleness of entertainment industry

Mumbai, July 22 (IANS) Director Santosh Singh, who recently helmed the streaming series ‘Ranneeti: Balakot & Beyond’, has shared his thoughts on the fickleness of the film industry.

Santosh has experienced both the highs and lows of an artiste’s career.

Reflecting on his journey, the director shared that change is an intrinsic part of the job.

Santosh was praised for his work on the streaming series ‘Broken but Beautiful season 1’, which starred Vikrant Massey and Harleen Sethi.

However, despite the show’s success, he was not involved in the subsequent seasons.

Santosh accepts this as a common occurrence in the industry.

The director told IANS: “Directing ‘Broken but Beautiful season 1’ was an incredible experience. The love and appreciation I still receive from fans is heartwarming. Although I was offered to direct season 2, it didn’t work out due to date issues. But that’s just how our industry operates. Interestingly, I ended up directing ‘Apharan season 2’ even though I wasn’t involved in season 1. As directors, we often find ourselves on both spectrums, and you can’t really complain about it.”

Santosh shared that from his early days as an assistant, he realised that one is only as good as their last release. It’s all about the quality of your work. This understanding has shaped how he approaches his profession and career.

The director firmly believes that if your film and its promotions are good, it will succeed.

“I am just happy about the opportunities I have been receiving so far. I am super excited for my upcoming comedy film ‘Nausikhiye’, starring Shreya Dhanwanthary, Abhimanyu Dasani, and Amol Parashar. It will be released in theatres soon, and I can’t wait for the audience to watch it,” he added.
