Most actors try to avoid bad reviews like they're the plague, only worse because the plague never says you're too old for the part!
But Matthew McConaughey has never been one to follow conventional wisdom. He says:
"A few years ago, I did a really interesting kind of experiment.
My assistants gathered every negative review I've ever had and it was a good, thick pile. I sat down and said, 'We're gonna read every one of these.'"
Holy thumbs down! Why?! Matthew says:

Ouch! Another nail in the coffin that has become her career!
After the much-hyped but critically eviscerated Megan Fox/Mickey Rourke romance Passion Play debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last year, nobody heard too much about it - which we know now is because instead of going to theaters, it will be released straight to DVD on May 24th!
We bet someone's wishing that she had stuck around for Transformers: Dark of the Moon pretty badly right now!
Better luck on the next one, gurl!

If the Green Goblin can't stop Spider-Man, did we REALLY think the critics would be able to do it?
Despite the fact that reviews for Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark have been overwhelmingly negative, ticket sales are up!
Last week, the show had "almost a 3 percent spike in sales over the previous week," grossing $1,330,014.
Congratulations, Spider-Man team! Good to know that the
hundreds of injured crew/cast members' efforts weren't entirely in vain.
