Matthew McConaughey has received backlash after revealing the details of his father James’ death.

The 50 year old Oscar winning actor claimed his father, who died in 1992, passed away while making love to his mother Mary.

Matthew wrote about his father’s death in his memoirs, called Greenlights, which is set to be released on Tuesday 20 October.

In the snippet from the book, which was released by People Magazine, the actor described the moment his mother Mary called him to break the devastating news as he wrote: “I got a call from my Mom. ‘Your dad died.’ My knees buckled. I couldn’t believe it.

“He was my dad. Nobody or nothing could kill him. Except mom.”

Matthew then revealed his father predicted he would pass away in such circumstances.

He continued: “He’d always told me and my brothers, ‘Boys, when I go, I’m gonna be makin’ love to your mother.’

“And that’s what happened. He had a heart attack when he climaxed.”

Matthew's parents had an up and down relationship as they divorced twice and married three times during their romance.

The Wolf of Wall Street actor’s revelation received backlash on social media, despite the story being told in the part, on the Howard Stern Show.

One critic said: “Is that not something incredibly private? I had no reason to know this. Is that what a grieving son does? Puts his mother’s intimacy in the news? What a classless loser.”

Another asked: “Did his mother give him permission to share this with the public?”

A further Twitter user wrote: “A little TMI [Too Much Information]. What an a*s”, while a further wrote: “what an appalling thing to share.”

Meanwhile, Matthew also discussed his memoir and he thought process during the writing phase.

He said: “I set out to say: ‘Hey, alright McConaughey you’re a celebrity. So you’re gonna have a certain platform to get a book out. Some people will wanna read it because of who you are and some people won’t want to read it because of who you are’.

“And I remember the first thing I said to myself. I said: ‘OK, whatever this turns out to be, the words on the page need to be worthy of being signed by anonymous but at the same time be words that once you read them people are like “only McConaughey could have read that”’ and that was the spot I was looking for.

“And to some extent I think I pulled that off. I think that the value that I hope you would get from Greenlights is the freedom, you know, how do we create more opportunities for ourselves and others to proceed, more forward, affirm, green light, go! And when we do that, that’s the true freedom.”
