Matthew McConaughey will lull you to sleep now (with an app)
Matthew McConaughey will talk to you until you fall asleep.
The Oscar-winner and Austin demigod isn’t going to show up to sit by your bed every night. However, you can press play on a sleep story he narrated in the popular mindfulness app Calm. In a sleep story called “Wonder,” McConaughey puts on his best NPR voice for about half an hour. As an occasional consumer of sleep meditation apps, I can attest to his skill: When I started listening to “Wonder,” McConaughey’s voice was so soothing that I thought at first he was one of Calm’s usual voices doing an intro.
The actor’s partnership with the app was announced last year, according to Variety. If you would like to drift off into a R.E.M. cycle as the star of “Interstellar” murmurs the sentence “A flamboyance of flamingos is lounging in a lagoon" as only he can, you’ll have to sign up for a Calm subscription. (Though you can get in with a free trial to start.)
In the meantime, find some covers to pull up and listen to the snippet that Calm put on YouTube.
