Romance isn't over for me yet, says star McConaughey.

ACTOR Matthew McConaughey says he is considering a return to romantic comedies despite his recent success in more serious roles.

The Oscar-winner appeared in a string of "rom-coms" in the previous decade including The Wedding Planner and How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, that received mixed reviews.

But he won critical acclaim for his performance in the drama Dallas Buyers Club, for which he won the Academy Award for best actor in 2014, and his starring role in Christopher Nolan's sci-fi blockbuster Interstellar.

McConaughey, who plays American Civil War fighter Newton Knight in the new film Free State Of Jones, described his earlier romantic comedy roles as "Saturday characters".

He said: "Obviously Free State Of Jones isn't a Saturday character. It's a Monday morning, go to work character. But I'm open to that in the future. I'm looking for some comedy right now."

Free State Of Jones is in cinemas on Friday
