Matthew McConaughey is sharing his political beliefs with fans.

Speaking on The Carlos Watson Show,McConaughey revealed his ambitions to make a long-term impact, something that can leave a mark.

"I'm not interested in going and putting a bunch of Band-Aids on that are going to be ripped off as soon as I'm out, I'm interested in building something that can last and I'm measuring what category that is, I don't know if that's politics," he said. "That whole embassy of politics has some redefining of its purpose."

The actor, who previously ran for the governor of Texas, said there is a dire need to bring lasting change that goes beyond a politician's term limit

"How many things do actual leaders and politicians get done that now become realized later on after they're off? They never get credit for them," he continued. "You only get credit for wins and Ws and Ls for what you did in that bank of those years, we've got to make some sacrifices for larger rewards tomorrow."
