Matthew McConaughey Reacts to His Film The Sea of Trees Getting Booed at Cannes.

CANNES– A day after premiering to a chorus of boos and laughter at its press screening, “Sea of Trees” earned a short and sweet standing ovation during his official premiere on Saturday evening in Cannes.’s new drama, The Sea of Trees co-starring Naomi Watts, was met with boos from critics when it screened at the Cannes International Film Festival on Friday. McConaughey, who plays an American who travels to Japan’s “suicide forest” after the death of his wife, did say earlier today during the presser that he “Anyone has any right to either boo or ovate,” but he and co-star Naomi Watts looked tense, especially McConaughey who is usually rather upbeat if not rowdy, when stepping onto the Palais’ red carpet.

The actor, who sported a long beard and a shiny bordeaux suit, was nevertheless welcomed by hordes of fans and spent time signing autographs before taking a few poses with Watts and Van Sant, who was initially wearing sunglasses. Once there though he encounters an injured local trying to find his way out of the forest and in helping this stranger he finds the will to live. “There were many times during the making of this where I thought, ‘I don’t know what I’m doing,’ ” he said. “That frustrated me for a long time.” Though he also added, “I like the film,” he said. “I’m happy to be here, happy to be invited. Happy that the film got in.” Of course, it isn’t rare for films to get booed at Cannes – Pulp Fiction, Taxi Driver and Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette were all famously met with jeers during their initial screenings at the festival.

It was a great experience for me,” he said at the film’s presser, which was not so packed. “I liked the experience of making it, and I’m glad we got the opportunity to introduce it to the world,” he added. “I’m working in the United States, but it’s exciting for me to come here and support work that got I to do with these people.” “This is fun. Thanks for having us, hope you enjoy it.” Asked about the different challenges he faced in “Sea” and in “Interstellar” as an actor, McConaughey said: “‘Interstellar” was an exploration ‘out there.’ This was an exploration ‘in here,’” and pointed to his chest. “In “Interstellar” there was a goal, to get there and get back home. With this guy I kept saying to myself: ‘I don’t know what I’m doing,’ and then I realized: ‘That’s perfect for Arthur.’” “I just had to get my hands on the script.
