MATTHEW McConaughey is now one of the most successful actors in Hollywood, but back in the late 1980s he was a young American tourist travelling around Australia for the "most important year of his life".

The Dallas Buyers Club star, who could very well win a Golden Globe for his starring role in the drama on Monday, opened up about his time Down Under in the February issue of GQ.

"I went over there having just graduated high school," McConaughey said.

"I was all green lights man. I left America with a car, job and some cash in my pocket, a girlfriend and some awful freedom. Then suddenly I got there (Australia) and there were school uniforms and I was writing creative English papers … So I felt like I went a little bit backwards. I started skipping school and hanging out on the library."

The 44-year-old actor tried his hand at 11 different jobs during his 12-month stint, including working at an ANZ bank, assisting golf professionals and becoming "a pretty decent carpenter".

But it was while he was working in country NSW that McConaughey fell in love with test cricket

"I was working on a pea farm in Narrandera and we'd come in for smoko, and put the cricket on," he said in GQ.

"And I'm talking the full-on, five-day matches, back when Curtly Ambrose and Desmond Haynes were rollin' for the West Indies. I also went to two West Indies-Australia matches and I remember my days at the tests - you eat a hot dog, you take a nap, you wake up, then maybe you catch the first wicket … Then you drink some beer and then take another nap. It was cool man."

The February issue of GQ hits stands on Monday and you can see McConaughey in Dallas Buyers Club from February 13.
