Matthew McConaughey's latest film got booed at Cannes. SAD FACE.

The Sea of Trees, which also stars Naomi Watts, debuted at the festival on Friday to a pretty negative reception.

But the actor, who let's face it, has been in some shocking films before his "McConaissance" (Failure to Launch, anyone?), didn't seem too bothered by the reaction - telling journalists at a press conference people have a right to boo his films.

When asked about the response, he said:

“All right, all right, all right. Anyone has as much right to boo as they do to ovate.”

He also added that he was a lucky man in life, and that other elements of his life made criticism easier to deal with.

"I get to wake up next to someone who I know loves me the way she does - my wife - who gave birth to our three beautiful, healthy children.

"I get to live in a nice place, and I have things to look forward to every day - work, play, and sometimes nothing at all."

Good for you, Matthew, although we might give that film a miss, if you don't mind.
