True Confessions with Matthew McConaughey
-Here's how it works. In front of us are two envelopes containing

confessions

. One confession is

true

. The other is a lie. Once you read your confession, the other two players have 60 seconds to interrogate you, and then they have to guess if you've been lying or telling the truth.

open? -I'm going to say -- The bottom, please. -Number two. -Yep. Number two. -Number two says... -Here we go. -Ooh-hoy! I, McConaughey, got charged by a mountain ram at edge of the Grand Canyon and had to throw my 6-month-old child 15 feet through the air to my wife to save him." -Well, I don't know. Now the grilling begins. -Hurry up. -What year was it?! -This was my 40th birthday. -Yeah, well, that's interesting. 16 months. Do the math there. I don't know how old your kid is. But, uh, wait. At the Grand Canyon. Was the Airstream there? -Yes, it was. 2004. The one in the picture you just saw. -So you threw the baby to your wife? -Yes. I threw -- -Who was -- -Who had scattered down along the edge when the ram had me here with about a 20-foot drop. -A ram. -And I had to -- After I had already got rid of the dog, I had to launch Levi through the air for my wife to catch so we didn't get rammed off the edge. -So you saved the dog first? -Well, the dog -- It was like those masks in the airplane. -Okay. Okay. -So, the dog was the one that was pissing the ram off. The dog's the one that starts growling...

first. So I'm like, "B.J., unh-unh." I had to get rid of the dog. -Was this like a baby ram, or like a full-on...? -No, this was the "alpha." -Mm. Mm. -Yeah. I'll tell you how, in a minute, I knew that. - -It's not a "Deliverance" story. -I think he just -- I think you gave it away. There's no -- It has to be

true

. -What?! I say it's a lie. -Hee-hee-hee! That's a good one, isn't it? -Is it? -You know what? That's 100%

true

. -What?! -I knew it. I knew it. Really? You threw the baby? -And here's what happened. I mean, we were -- we were having a picnic up there, and then when I noticed -- And I back up to the edge after I've gotten rid of the dog and gotten rid of my son. And I grab this little branch behind me, tree, and I get behind it. And it's, like, this cherry bush about as thick as my pinkie. I'm like, "This is not going to save me at all." And I squared off and just tried to go as Yoda as I could with this ram and just say, "Not me, whatever it is." He was kicking dirt and everything. He hops off the ledge, swings back around. We look over on the other side. His harem is on the other side. So we were between him and all of his ladies, and he didn't want any other male scent on his mountain. -Wow. -And I was like, "Your mountain, sir." -See? I knew it. I knew it was

, because --. -I should have believed it. -Yeah. Well, I just -- We have just similar...

lives. -Straight out of Brooklyn! -Here we go. My turn. Which envelope should I open? Uh, number one or number two? -Oh, yeah, that one. Two. -You sure? -That's the one. -This could be the truth or could be... -A lie. -...a lie. "I once was attacked by a ram on..." No, seriously. Here we go. -It was related to the ram. -Related to the other ram. Yeah, we were on vacation together. I was dressed as a baby. Yeah, it was a Dodge Ram that had me cornered in my Airstream. I was like, "Help!" All right. Here we go. "I, Jimmy Fallon, once docked a ferry full of tourists coming back from the Statue of Liberty." - Yeah? What year was this? -Yeah, when was this? -I'd say 2000 maybe? -Did you have a driver's license back then? -I do not drive a boat or anything. No. I had my driver's license, sure. -Ohh. -And what were you doing coming from the Statue of Liberty? -I love the Statue of Liberty. I go there all the time. -Just a Saturday, moseying around, something to do? -I don't think -- I think it was a weekday. -Were you getting paid for this job? -No. No. I just like the Statue of Liberty. -As the ferryman, or were you like, "Hey, I'm Jimmy Fallon. Hey, Captain, let me dock the ferry boat." -No. I wouldn't do that. I wouldn't put people's lives in jeopardy. -Who went to the Statue of Liberty with you? -I went solo. I went by myself. -What?! -Oh, it wasn't -- You didn't have a bunch of tourists that...
true confessions with matthew mcconaughey
came to see the Statue of Liberty? -There was a bunch of people on -- -So because you took the ferry solo by yourself, a lot of people that really have never seen the Statue of Liberty had to sit over on land and wait for you, as a celebrity, to get back. -No, I didn't go on the boat by myself, the ferry. I went with other people, but I didn't invite anyone. It wasn't like -- I went by myself. -There were a lot of seats still open that people were waiting for. -No, no, that's not

true

. -Okay. So we can't ask you any more questions. -This is a lead-pipe cinch. -I don't know, man. I'm going to say it's a lie. -You're going to say it's a lie? -Both: It's a lie. -It's

true

. -What?! I drove and docked the ferry. It was the weirdest thing -- It was the weirdest thing ever. That is what happened to me. It was weird. I was coming back. I went because I really -- I'm into the Statue of Liberty. It's really amazing. So I went. I was just hanging out. I go, "This is awesome." Then I get on this ferry back. And this captain goes -- People started getting autographs and stuff like that, 'cause it was before, like, cellphones really. And so they wanted autographs and stuff. And the captain's like, "Just come up here in the cockpit and just -- you know, so you won't get mobbed." And I go, "Okay." Then he goes, "You ever dock a ferry?" I go, "What are you talking about?"...
There's like probably 200 people on this thing. I don't know how many people fit in a ferry. I didn't even know what I was on. Again, the guy was a great guy. He's probably fired by now. -No, yeah, he's not a great guy. -He's not a great guy. He's like, "Dude, turn the thing and pull the throttle this way and that way." And I was like, "What's going on?" And I full-on docked the ferry. It was absolutely crazy and totally

true

. And I was like, "What just happened?" That's what happens when you hang out at the Statue of Liberty. -Solo. -Yeah, here we go. Solo. All right. Tariq, here we go. -All right. Which one? Which one do I open? -I think number --. Number one. -Uno. -Okay. -I can break you. I can know if you're telling the truth. I hang with him all the time. Oh, he had it the backwards way, yeah. -"I once drove around with Kanye West in the trunk of my car." -Kanye was in the trunk? Yeah. -And you were driving? -Yes. -Just the two of you? -No. -Who else was in the car? -Uh, Common. -You and Common. And Common's riding shotgun. -Kanye West was in the trunk of your car? -Yeah. -And why did he end up in the trunk of your car? -He was avoiding people who were trying to take photographs of him. -Oh, he should have gone up and driven -- docked the ferry. -I know. Right? -But why didn't he go down -- Why didn't you put a blanket over him in the backseat or something? -Um, yeah, I...
don't know. I guess I -- I don't know. -Whose idea was it to go in the trunk? -It was his. -It was his? "Let me get some privacy in the trunk." -I mean, he just wanted me to get him out of there. We were in a sneaker store in L.A. It's called -- I don't know. I'm not going to mention it. But -- -That one. -It's a pretty popular, you know, sneaker store. You get the exclusive -- -Beep, beep! -No. Get out of here. There was an event there. The store happened to be about a block and a half away from a residence where Common lived. He lived with the legendary producer J Dilla there. -Don't try to distract. -I'm serious! -The details are good here. But from the sneaker store to the trunk. I'm sorry. Do we go through the mall? -No, we went out the back door. -And got in the trunk. -And he got in the trunk. I drove. -And he got in the trunk. -So far, it's been

,

true

. -The living with -- The side story of Common living with the producer is nice, nice detail. -I don't think Kanye would be -- jump in a trunk. It's not his -- I would say Kanye would be like, "Bring it, bring it." -I hope it's

true

. -Maybe today he would, but this wasn't today. This was a while ago. - -I mean, look, the storytelling alone -- Got to say the details -- throwing the scent off on the side like Bob Dylan would do. I'm going say it's good enough to say it's

true

. And if it ain't, it ought to be. -Kanye West was in...
the trunk of your car, and you drove him around -- You drove him, and he was in the trunk of your car. -Yes, a 2004 Porsche Cayenne. -Ooh, the details! -I don't even know what that means. A small trunk? -Common lived a block away. -Is that a small trunk? -With the producer. -Yeah. J Dilla. -J Dilla, who Common lived with and was at a sneaker event. Kanye likes sneakers. Doesn't he have Yeezys? -Yeah, yeah, yeah. Probably this is pre-Yeezy. -Yeah, it's pre-Yeezy. He probably thought about the idea when he was locked in the trunk. He's like, "I got an idea! Get me out!" -Right. -Oh, man. I like to be right on these games. Uh, no. No way Kanye West would ever be in the back of your trunk ever. -I say he did. -It's a lie! ♪♪ Ohh! -That was a good one! -My favorite, my favorite. And Common lived a block away with the producer J Dilla. -J Dilla. That was the one. My thanks to
